A teacher should research the topic looking for primary sources to begin. These sources would include but not limited to the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, First person accounts, diaries, and etc. For example, if the teacher is preparing a lesson on Indigenous People of the United States, one may use the Indian Removal Act to show how lands were taken away by this Act and the Trail of Tears moved Indigenous Tribes to land that no only hindered their culture but killed thousands. A teacher would also use secondary sources to support the primary sources. All evidence that is actual documented information in history.
