Block 3- Petition of Right and English Bill of Rights
This is a good website for finding out about the petition of right because it has infromation about other things about rights as well as the petition. It also states some facts about the petition. It is a secondary source because it doesn't have the actual document on their website.
1. It has the four principles asserted in the document.
2. It has who initiated the document.
and 3. It explains why it was made. by Nov 28
One of the reesons that this website is good is because it really explains the petion of right. It includes the three demands that the nobles held to the king. Three facts are:
- "No taxation without representation"
-The right for a prisoner to know the reason for his incarceration was included in the Petition of Rights
-The Petition of Rights prohibited the involuntary quartering of troops.
This is not a Primary source because it is not the direct transition from the original paper. To be a primary source it would have to be a copy of the Petition of Right but typed. by Nov 29
I think this is a good link because if someone that doesn't know anything about the subject reads it he would understand it because he wrote what the problem was. When you read it you would find it quite interesting so a reader would read the whole thing. I would think this is a reliable source because in other websites they state the same idea.
Here are three reasons of why The Petition of Rights were important:
1. It limited the kings power which made him less powerfull and the citzens more powerful.
2. This agreement was denied by the king at first but then the commons forced him to sign it.
3. If the king was to make a new rule it would’ve had to go through the consent of the Parliament. by Nov 28

This is a primary site because this great webside because it has a lot of good information and it also has a lot of other documents like the Magna Carta, Bill of rights... There are also NO commercials what is very good because commercials annoy. There are 3 facts about the Petitition:
1. The King can only make new rules by the consent of the Parliament.
2. It also said that the people do not need to house soldiers of the government anymore.
3. It gave new rules to the people. It gave power to the people and away from the King. So the King did not had as much power as before. by Nov 30
I forgot to put this in my comment but it is a secondary source. It is secondary because it doesn't state the actual document. by Nov 28
This is a good website because it gives fact, details, pictures and relate able examples. One of Mr. Meyer’s criteria for a good website is that if the author was’nt proud enough of the website to post their name, is it completely reliable or honest; probably not.
Three reasons why the Petition of Rights was important:
The Petition for bayed the king from instantaneous power and soldiers.

I think that this is a good website because it is really informative and it seems reliable and it is also very official looking. The author writes in a way that is easy to understand and can easily be interpreted.
This is a secondary source because it looks like the information was taken and made more easy to understand. Also the site is more like an encyclopedia and it lets people comment and change the information if it is incorrect.
Three things that I learned about the Petition of Right from this website are:

2. Limited the King’s power and gave more power to the common people
3. Soon after it was issued the king disobeyed and ignored it and upset many people by Nov 28

This is a really good website because it was written by the Fordham University which is a really good university in New York. The website is from one of the pages in the Modern History Sourcebook also made by the Fordham University. This website is also good because it says the date and where the English Bill of Rights was made (England-1689) and because it says the rules and laws written in the English Bill of Rights. This website is also a primary source because it says everything written in the English Bill of Rights.
The English Bill of Rights:

I think that this website is really good because it has very good information and is from a college. There are a few problems with this source, it is a primary source, and has all kinds of CRAZY words! It also is hard to understand. It is good because the information is really exact. I guess that if you were in college (what this site is for) you could probably understand it better.
•1. That the pretended power of suspending laws, or the execution of laws, by regal authority, without consent of parliament is illegal.
•2. That the pretended power of dispensing with the laws, or the execution of law by regal authority, as it hath been assumed and exercised of late, is illegal.
•3. That the commission for erecting the late court of commissioners for ecclesiastical causes, and all other commissions and courts of like nature, are illegal and pernicious.
