Question Description

Each of us probably has several primary sources on our person or in our homes at this very moment. In this discussion we will share these sources with one another.

In this discussion it is important to consider Week 2's content regarding primary and secondary sources (go back to Course Content Week 2 and, if necessary, review "Types of Information: Primary and Secondary Sources" and Table 2.1).

How to respond:

1. Primary Sources: In your discussion posting, please provide 2 examples of primary sources that are either: on your person (in your wallet or purse); in your home, automobile, or at work; or that you have recently seen or heard on the Internet, television, or radio. State why you think the items are primary sources. (Remember, go back to Course Content Week 2 and, if necessary, review "Types of Information: Primary and Secondary Sources" and Table 2.1).

2. Secondary Sources: In your posting, please also provide 2 examples of secondary sources that you have encountered either: in another course; via radio, television, or the Internet; or that you have in your home, automobile, or at work. State why you believe these items are secondary sources. (Remember, go back to Course Content Week 2 and, if necessary, review "Types of Information: Primary and Secondary Sources" and Table 2.1).

Hints: Be very SPECIFIC about what you are posting. Don’t just put “book”- tell me the title of the book that you are referring to and WHY you think it is a primary or a secondary source. Try to be original- I will know the students who copy examples straight from Week 2 and those who copy other students’ postings. Make sure you are creating original work.

Grading rubric:

5 points: Correctly identifies and substantiates 2 primary sources as specified above AND 2 secondary sources as specified above and gives a very detailed and thoughtful response.

3-4 points: One or two of the four sources are incorrectly identified AND/OR explanations of sources are not sufficient.

1-2 points: Three of the sources are incorrectly identified AND/OR explanations of sources are not sufficient.

0 point: All sources are incorrectly identified.

Relevance of this conference to this course:

We encounter primary and secondary sources every day, but they often may have nothing to do with our academic work. This discussion helps students realize that primary and secondary sources are everywhere, and helps them gain a clearer understanding of the differences between the two.

Primary Sources:

observations then put in the form of paper. The researcher obtains original data and are created
during the time of research. Primary sources are: Letters, interviews, diaries, experiments and
observations, music, poetry, art and drama. There are several examples of Primary Sources, two
of them are: Interview with the prisoners and Autobiography of Nelson Mandela.

or even the prisoners themselves. Other primary source may include interviews with the
