The objective of the lesson is to have students analyze primary and secondary documents, and identify the credibility of each document. This is a great skill for students to fine tune. It combines learning world history and improving their literacy skills. The plan provides the necessary framework for students to achieve this. I noticed that student are only analyzing wirtten content, could students analyze other multimedia sources?
Could other technology besides iPad be used? iPad is still a relatively okay tool and expensive too. How about a netbook?
