� What is a “source” in history and geography ?
History and Geography use two kinds of sources : primary and secondary. The
first ones are first-hand information and original data, most of the time created
at the time of the event. Secondary resources are an analysis of the first ones.
� How do I check the information acquired from my source is reliable? The
information should be consistent in at least 2 sources.
� just a remember : How to cite sources ? (Mini in-class lesson)
� What was the best source that I found and why?

� Am I working efficiently with my partner ? 5 questions for you :
❏ Am I meeting with my partner at the time that we agreed on or do I prefer
to postpone the meetings ?
❏ Am I an helpful partner ready to give a hand to have our project done or
do I think my partner and I are working separately ?
❏ Am I working efficiently and respecting the deadlines or do I prefer to work
at my own path ?
❏ Do I bring new ideas to the project or do I prefer to do what my partner is
asking me to do ?
❏ Do I care about the quality of the work I am producing or do I think my
partner will redo all the work I am doing ?
We hope that you had fun working on this History Fair and, please, don’t forget
to glue below your best picture during that time of hard work!!!!!
