PSA (Primary Source Assignment)

Now that you have a sense of deconstructing a primary source, analyzing its usefulness, and using it to make some historical argument, you are prepared to remove some of the scaffolding. What this means is that you no longer have to submit a Who/What/When/Where table for step 1. Instead, you will only have to give me the single paragraph description for each source. (I attached blank table anyway JUST as a REMINDER or GUIDE)

Materials needed:
1. the Balfour Declaration

2. the Sykes-Picot Treaty

3. Ataturk’s Speech

4. One Bias and Reliability Table

Step 1: Write three-separate one paragraph descriptions of all three sources. This is no different than what you did before for step 1, except now you do not need to submit a table.(1.Woodrow Wilson’s Fourteen Points 2. One letter of your choosing from Letters from the First World War 3. One letter of your choosing from Letters from the First World War)

Step 2: Select any ONE of the three sources to perform a Bias and Reliability analysis. Fill out all the questions in the table, including the two topic questions.

Step 3: Using the source you used for step 2, write a strong, collegiate-level paragraph with that source making an historical argument. You may draw from the other sources and videos to help write your paragraph, but the source should be used to make your point.……
