Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

  • Conduct source analysis on two primary sources relevant to your historical event.
    • You will respond to specific questions about each source in the activity template.
  • Analyze the primary sources relevant to your historical event for the presence of bias.
    • What clues are present in your two sources that may indicate bias? Provide evidence of these clues from your sources. If you do not think there is bias, provide evidence to support your claim. 
  • Compare how your historical event is represented in your primary sources.
    • Do the two sources tell the same story, or are contrasting perspectives represented? Provide evidence from your sources.
