Let's Get Writing Again!

Now that you have completed the pre-assessment writing activity, watched the introduction video, and reviewed the companion information sheet, let's move on to the post-assessment writing activity!  Take as much time as you need to jot down your own answers to the following review questions on a sheet of paper (you can use the back of the same one you used for the pre-assessment):

  1. Define “primary source” and list 2 examples that are different from the ones you listed for the pre-assessment writing activity.

  2. List 2 key differences between libraries and archives.

  3. What is the archival equivalent to a library catalog record?
