Maya Civilization

Primary sources provide a powerful way to learn about history first hand through the people who lived it and events that took place. Many topics in our Hispanic Heritage collection offer related primary sources, from historical documents and photographs to newspaper articles and audio excerpts like this one of  César Chávez’s 1984 speech “What the Future Holds for Farm Workers and Hispanics.”

To find Primary Source, look for the button on the topic’s home page. 

Don’t forget… BrainPOP Educators offers lesson plans and other teaching resources to help you make the most of our content. To access these resources, click the Lesson Ideas button at the bottom of every topic page.
