Primary Sources

Here is the list of required primary source documents you will analyze for your class.  They are listed by chapter and you can access the document at the bottom of this page in the subpage.  For each analysis you have you must complete a Document Analysis worksheet (found in the "needed documents" subpage).  Remember, for some chapters there is more than one document and you must complete them both.  There are also two other analysis worksheets "object" and "photo" but they are not needed unless you are given specific instructions to use them for class and are not used with the chapters.
