Grades 4-6 | Author Brianna DuMont presents Humorous History: Who Wrote That? - Sep 21, 2020 12:10pm EDT
About this event:
Using fun and interactive examples from pop culture, students are introduced to the dual concepts of primary sources and bias. Next, students will hear two differing primary sources, a positive and a negative, from John Adams on a mysterious historical figure (George Washington). They are asked to analyze the source and decide if he appears to like or dislike his subject. After a big reveal, we discuss the factors that can affect bias and link them back to reading with awareness in our everyday lives.
