This site offers a guide explaining how to use primary source documents effectively.

This is a PDF version of a booklet on using primary sources in the classroom. It discusses strengths and benefits of numerous artifact types (e.g., documents, advertisements), provides worksheets to guide students through source analysis, and includes lesson plans using Smithsonian artifacts. This could serve as an excellent resource when engaged in professional development relating to primary sources.

Love the way this details each type of primary source and its strengths and limitations.
