How to Approach Bias in Primary Sources

MON., AUGUST 21, 2023

Just because a primary source has a perspective, point of view, or bias does not mean that it is not a good source to use. In this session, Teaching with Primary Sources-MTSU will discuss how to identify perspective, point of view, and bias in primary sources and discuss each with students. The session will explore activities to analyze bias across multiple sources to present a wide range of perspectives. The session will conclude with a discussion of best practices for accessing primary sources in the Library of Congress digital collections.
