You will be searching for secondary sources about your topic and its connection to your Collection's theme. In particular you will be seeking information about efforts to raise awareness about or repair the injustices of your Collection’s “hard history.” Examples of these might include: individuals who fought for equal rights (hidden heroes), group resistance efforts, reparations, or changes in laws.
Search results are only as good as the words (keywords or search terms) you enter.

After you conduct a search and find a source, you may look for new search terms in that source. Watch the video below which uses one source from the Example Collection and demonstrates how to use the embedded link in the individual primary source to go to an article to locate new keywords to search for information on your topic.
Select a promising search term/phrase from your Search Terms document and try it out in Google to locate a secondary source for your final research project. Your assignment requires you to find two secondary sources about your topic and its connection to your Collection theme including efforts to raise awareness or repair those injustices.
*The article embedded in your primary source may not be included as one of your two sources for this assignment.
Open two tabs on your laptop for the two secondary sources you located on your primary source/collection theme for homework due today.

The process of evaluating secondary sources involves Lateral Reading (leaving the source to verify its content) by answering questions such as the following.
Use what you wrote on your Evaluating Secondary Sources Assignment above to answer these questions below in your whole class discussion.
You already downloaded and completed an evaluation during class on one of the secondary sources you found. Now, go back to that assignment form again, scroll down to the second page, complete it for the SECOND secondary source you found on your topic/Collection theme. Upload that one document with both source evaluations on it to the Evaluating Secondary Sources Assignment in Brightspace.
