Sourcing asks students to consider who wrote a document as well as the circumstances of its creation. This poster reminds students before reading a document to ask:
• Who wrote this?
• What is the author’s perspective?
• Why was it written?
• When was it written?
• Where was it written?
• Is this source reliable? Why? Why not?
The file is designed to be printed on 18" by 24" paper.
