My Primary Sources

Regarding those final essays you've been hearing so much about recently, here's an actual email I received from a student:

Hi Mr. Shain,

I just had a question about the essay question. Im working on topic three and it says that I have to incorporate significant primary sources. I was wondering if I could refer to my lecture notes as my primary source. If you could get back to me as soon as possible, that would be greatly appreciated.
