The blog entry that I am doing is about secondary sources and our secondary source folder. The reason why we have to do secondary sources is because it is for National History Day. Another reason we have to do secondary sources is because it teaches us about the person that we are doing for National History Day. Also, it is important for us to have secondary sources because it's a grade for history. The last reason it is important for us to have secondary sources is because it's going to help us on our entire project.
A secondary source is the opposite of a primary source. It is a source about the person's life, but not written by the person being studied. An example, is a biography about the person. A secondary source is a summary of a person's life, an example of a secondary source for me is looking in a book or an encyclopedia for information in Berry Gordy. In my folder I put books and encyclopedia articles that I copied about Berry Gordy.
