Welcome back to seminar!

  • Difference between primary and secondary sources
    • How do Primary and Secondary Sources differ?
      • While primary sources are the original records created by firsthand witnesses of an event, secondary sources are documents, texts, images, and objects about an event created by someone who typically referenced the primary sources for their information. Textbooks are excellent examples of secondary sources.

Remember: You can only use primary sources from the websites Dr. Costanzo has provided. Sources from any other website or book must be approved by either him or myself.
