Welcome to Scaffold Sources for Various Learners, the fourth course in the BRI’s online program, Considering the Source!

Primary sources can be difficult for students to read and comprehend. Sometimes we dismiss them because our students cannot access the text, but that can stunt their opportunities for learning and growth. By the end of this module, you will learn reading strategies and skills to scaffold sources so that your students can engage and learn.
