UGS 302: The Contested Past- Walthall

Home

In-Class Activities

To do on your own: Open both sources and skim each one for just a couple of minutes - you won't be able to really read them, but try to get an idea of what kind of source you're looking at and what clues helped you figure that out. Use Google if you need to to help you find out more about each source. Notice the structure of each source and any characteristics about the source that you want to discuss with class.

Then, talk about these sources with your group, you can use the questions below to get started:

1. What kinds or type of source is each of these sources (they are both articles, but what kind?)

2. What evidence did the authors gather to write each of these articles?

3. If you were writing about confederate monuments, how might each of these articles be useful to you?

4. Talk about other things you notice about these sources that are important for us to discuss.
