background image Lecture: 3/22/18  HIST Paper Review  ❖  Reasons for assigning paper:  o  Learn to look at multiple sources to determine a truth 
o  Learn to critically assess why certain authors believe/account events in a certain way 
❖  Paper Information:  o  Find 5 newspapers or witnesses of a certain event from different perspectives/different  ideas/claims between 1865 and 1970  ▪  Look at how they’re reporting/explaining, and you will explain why they’re  reporting in that way  ▪  Wants contemporary sources, sources reported at time – NOT TEXTBOOKS 
▪  Does not have to be over information from class 
▪  Use digital archives to find sources (not google) 
•  Newspapers.com (costs money) 
•  Elephind.com (free)  
•  Library of Congress collection 
•  WWII Interview archives  
Don’t pick an event that is extensively analyzed (too popular), needs to be over a short 
period of time, interesting and controversial, explain historical context 
Sources must be written by witnesses of event or around time of event, don’t use google 
to find the sources – sources must all be of the same type (i.e. five newspapers, five 
eyewitnesses, don’t mix) 
o  Format of potential topic questions:  ▪  How did ______ (noun/group) ______ (verb) ______ (event)?  o  Examples:  ▪  AWFUL EXAMPLE: How did soldiers see WWII? 
▪  BETTER EXAMPLE: How did US sailors witness the Battle of Midway? 
▪  GOOD EXAMPLE: What did sailors on board the Yorktown say caused the 
sinking of the Yorktown? 
------ 
▪  BETTER EXAMPLE: How did newspapers report on the Hepburn Act? 
▪  OKAY EXAMPLE: How did newspapers report on the Hepburn Act the day 
afterwards?  ▪  GOOD EXAMPLE: How did southern newspapers report on the Hepburn Act  the day afterwards?  Don’t say “I/we think”. Personal opinions and conjecture are okay, however, state them 
as fact using “likely”, etc. DON’T use contractions! 
o  Citations are not necessary if you turn in sources  
Include short quote for each source, don’t include long ones  ❖  Can do an alternative to the assignment if you have been paid at it such as photography, painting,  translating, etc. – must be able to prove
