o rigin p urpose v alue l imitation

These are the things you need to consider when looking at a historical source.

Origin

Purpose

Value

Limitation

slide2

Origin

    • Who wrote it?
    • When was it written?
    • Where was it written?
    • What was going on there at that time? (Does this have an obvious impact on the work?)
slide3

Purpose

    • Why was it written?
    • What was the author trying to accomplish by writing this?
    • Is it politically motivated?
    • Is it emotionally charged?
      • These last two points are tricky… you need to make sure you understand them before you claim that a source is either!
slide4

Value

    • What historical knowledge can be gained from this document?
    • Can any specific insight be gained about the author/creator?
    • Can any specific insight be gained about the situation being presented?
slide5

Limitations

    • Is the author/creator of the document biased in any way?
    • Does the purpose of the document possibly skew the actual meaning?
    • Does the author possibly have limited knowledge of the situation on which he/she is writing? (Why do you think so?)
slide6

A Couple of Final Notes

  • PLEASE DO NOT address each and every question when writing your OPVL, just consider them and address them if necessary… not necessarily in the terms used.
  • Limitations are more difficult now than they will be later – don’t make up something just to have a limitation. If it’s not there, then it’s not there.
  • If you say there is a limitation, you BETTER be able to BACK IT UP!
