Primary, Secondary, Tertiary Sources

A little “Go Animate” I made for my 8th graders to help explain Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Sources.

The cat’s name is “Simon” because the British voice option I used in Go Animate was called “Simon” (as someone said today “If it’s said in a British accent, it must be true”).  🙂  It has nothing to do with the cartoon “Simon’s Cat,” which I also love.  Alas, I hope my mini-lesson is entertaining and memorable, but it will never be as memorable as this.


About Paula Montrie

I am a Middle School Librarian at Friends School of Baltimore. I have been a librarian for 11 years, serving 6 years with the Howard County Public School System before arriving at my current school. I teach two classes: SpeechCraft (a combination of information literacy, public speaking and theater), and Media Literacy at the middle school level. I also collaboratively co-teach with a number of teachers at the school, including Music, Geography, and U.S. History. I love it! My professional interests are: information literacy, multiple intelligences and learning styles, teaching through movement, curriculum-writing, technology integration, and bridging the gap between digital natives and digital immigrants. My personal interests are: dancing, singing, knitting, sewing, art, living history, writing and of course - reading!
