Discussion- Historical lenses

Anonymous

Question Description

In this discussion, you will consider how historical lenses can affect the study of a historical topic. Select one of the secondary source articles from the Research Kit for your chosen topic. After reading that article, write a discussion post about which of the following lenses you believe the article is using: social, political, economic, or other. Use at least two quotes from your source to justify your choice of lens. Your post title should also indicate which topic you have selected. Next week, you will be prompted to respond to two of your peers' initial posts.

When responding to peers, choose a peer who selected the same topic as you by looking at the title of the discussion posts. In one to two paragraphs, compare and contrast the source you described in your initial post with the one described by your peer. Are the two sources' theses or arguments compatible? Do they use the same or different primary sources? Is one source more reliable, in your estimation, than the other? How do these two sources, combined, add to what you know about the research topic?

Note: This discussion spans two weeks and is graded at the end of Module 4. Your first post is due in Module 3, and your two follow-up posts are due in Module 4. A 10% late penalty will be applied for initial posts that are submitted after the assigned week. No discussion activity is accepted for credit after the close of the theme.

To complete this assignment, review the Theme: Investigating History Discussion Rubric document.
