Knowing the Past through Historical Documents.
Rael, Patrick
Knowledge Quest, v29 n1 p16-17 Sep-Oct 2000
Describes an exercise for helping students evaluate the veracity of primary documents, and considers two kinds of knowledge that documents can give about the past: information about events that occurred; and insight into the perceptions and thoughts of those who lived in the past, including those responsible for the document's creation. Discusses the objective versus the neutral text, and the credible versus the reliable text. (AEF)
