Medieval History Lectures: Dr. Lynn H. Nelson Please take into consideration the purpose and audience for which the lecture notes listed above were written. For a good many years, I taught a three-credit-hour freshman survey entitled Introduction to Medieval History to enrollments of room-size - generally three hundred students. During those years, the University of Kansas maintained an open enrollment policy in which all graduates from accredited Kansas high schools were admitted to the University. Since the only history courses required by the State of Kansas at the secondary level were in American History, students enrolling for this course varied widely in their knowledge of the European past. Consequently, my lectures were both basic and episodic, concentrating on major events and topics that would prepare the students for further enrollments in Humanities courses and attempting to demonstrate that the study of History could be both useful and enjoyable.

UH - Digital History Curriculum The Reading Like a Historian curriculum engages students in historical inquiry. Each lesson revolves around a central historical question and features sets of primary documents modified for groups of students with diverse reading skills and abilities. This curriculum teaches students how to investigate historical questions employing reading strategies such as sourcing, contextualizing, corroborating, and close reading. Instead of memorizing historical facts, students evaluate the trustworthiness of multiple perspectives on issues from King Philip's War to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and make historical claims backed by documentary evidence. I am so excited to find your website and your lessons. Karen Peyer, Teacher, Russell Middle School, Colorado Springs How do I use these lessons in my classroom? The 75 lessons in this curriculum can be taught in succession, but are designed to stand alone and supplement what teachers are already doing in the classroom. 1. 2. 3. Of course!

Toolkit Defining Primary and Secondary Sources By Michael Eamon, historian and archivist, Library and Archives Canada Primary Sources Secondary Sources When Is a Primary Source Not a Primary Source? Libraries and archives hold objects, like documents and books, which help us to find out what happened in the past. Primary and secondary sources, when used together, help us to understand people, ideas and events from the past. Primary Sources People use original, first-hand accounts as building blocks to create stories from the past. All of the following can be primary sources: Secondary Sources C.W. What do you think?

TheHistoryNet: From the World's Largest History Magazine Publisher EuroDocs Primary and Secondary Sources Way back in 1703, a massive storm hit the southern coast of England. It was a hurricane known as the Great Storm and it took over 8,000 lives. Today we know quite a bit about that storm and what actually happened when it came ashore. We know so much because we have a reliable way to research and document events, places, and people who matter. Here’s how it works. When an event like the Great Storm happens there are usually people who witnessed or experienced it directly. These are the primary sources for research about the storm. But for your article, other sources of information may also be helpful. For your article, this is considered a secondary source. So for any important part of history, you are likely to find two types of sources that can work together to give you a strong sense of the event. By understanding the types of sources you have and how to use them in your projects, you can bring your audience the best experience and most accurate information.

Historical Texts Collection : History Department : Hanover College The Hanover Historical Texts Collection makes available digital versions of historical texts for use in history and humanities courses. Search by keyword, or browse by subject heading. The faculty and students of the Hanover College History Department initiated the Hanover Historical Texts Project in 1995, at a time when few primary sources were available outside of published anthologies. To make primary texts readily available for classroom use, they selected important documents, scanned print versions that were out of copyright, converted the scans into HTML format, proofread the resulting documents to correct OCR errors, edited them to provide page breaks, page numbers, and bibliographical information, and posted them online. We have since expanded the collection to include transcriptions of manuscript material from the Hanover College archives. Most of the texts in the Hanover Historical Texts Collection are in public domain.

Internet History Sourcebooks Update Information 2006: In 2006 the Internet Medieval Sourcebooks and associated sourcebooks are undergoing a major overhaul to remove bad links and add more documents. 1. This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms. At the time it was instigated (1996), it was not clear that web sites [and the documents made available there] would often turn out to be transient. As a result there is a process called "link rot" - which means that a "broken link" is a result of someone having taken down a web page. In some cases some websites have simply reorganized sub-directories without creating forwarding links. 2. 3. The Internet Medieval Sourcebook is organized as three main index pages, with a number of supplementary documents. INTRODUCTION: MEDIEVAL SOURCES ON THE INTERNET Historians teaching medieval history surveys almost always want to combine a textbook, a sourcebook, and additional readings. DOCUMENT SIZE: The size of documents for teaching purposes is an issue.
