In answering the above question, analyze your primary source by responding to the questions below: (See also this graphic organizer.) What is the title of the source? What kind of source is it? (newspaper, diary entry, letter, etc.) Who is the author? How does the author’s gender, race, socioeconomic class, and citizenship status compare to the people about whom he or she is writing? Why did he or she write the source? Who was the intended audience? What unspoken assumptions does the text contain? Are there detectable biases in the source? When was the source written? What is the historical context in which the source was written and read? What larger historical events, processes, or structures might have influenced this text? Is this source consistent with what you know about the historical record from that time? Why or why not? Does the author have a main argument? If so, what is it? What other documents help you to understand this one? Or, what other information might you need to understand fully this document? How does this source enrich your understanding of the era? IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not simply list answers to the questions above. Rather, you must write your paper in essay form. It should have an introduction, several body paragraphs, and a conclusion. You do not need to address the questions in order, but be sure that you address all questions that are relevant to the source in your essay. Your essay must be a polished piece of writing.
