Rating: 2 stars

Comment: Some time ago I attempted to have students use some of the treaties and accompanying maps in a paper I assigned in a 200-level American Minorities History class. I discovered that the students did not have the skills to put together the information from the primary sources with the information they were reading about Indian removal in their textbook. Since the same students were able to use other types of primary sources effectively, I concluded that the nature of the source was too difficult for that level of student to use without considerable help from me.
