Set a purpose for this reading:

Review the primary source you analyzed yesterday. How do those concepts apply?

And then choose your second source to analyze today.

You will be assigned a reading group and given a section (or two) of the Native Americans History Reading to further supplement with primary sources that your group deems valuable to further the message of the text.

Provide quality sources, ones that advance the themes of the text or your understanding of the events being described. No CRAAP.
