UGS 302: Who Owns the Past - Covey

Home

In-Class Activities

Sample sources

Room 1 - sources 1&2

Room 2 - Sources 1&3

Room 3 - Sources 4&5

Room 4 - Sources 2&5

To do on your own: Open your sources and skim them 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. Use Google if you need to to help you find out more about the source. Notice the structure of the article and any characteristics about the article that you want to discuss with your group.

Then, talk about the following in your breakout room (be ready to discuss with the larger group):

  1. All of the sources have some relation to the Parthenon Marbles. Does the author have a (possible) perspective on this topic?
  2. What would you call your source (or what type of source is it)?
  3. How could this source be useful to if you were researching this topic? What could you learn from this type of source more generally?
