Jackson, I am unable to read your graphic, please repost with a clearer image.
I agree as well! An insightful response Mackenzie. Keep up the great work.
I agree with your discussion of history as a narrative, which we discussed in class. Please remember to choose one of the questions provided to help guide class learning this semester.
You might consider reviewing Buzzfeed Unsolved as a primary source / accurate source of information. Pseudoscientific discussion about the Bermuda Triangle might have corroborated anecdotal claims, but many of the ‘interviews’ conducted with ‘professionals’ are there for entertainment purposes only.
Again, please review this source of evidence thoroughly. This is a great source to critique about how we know what we know about the past. Specifically, the first sign of a lack of credibility comes from the narrator describing the Bermuda Triangle as the “Underwater Area 51.” Not only is it important that the film corroborates its evidence, but it is more important that you research multiple primary source documents before agreeing with these conclusions.
Keep in mind that while the ‘past’ is everything that has ever occurred up until this point, while ‘history,’ is a curated narrative that we tell about the past. Think of it like a personal collection, say a collection of stamps. The collector may have a certain type of stamp that they collect, and definitely not every stamp ever created.
With this in mind, we need both primary and secondary sources to make inferences about the past. Primary sources do no work as a de-facto expression of past events. Remember that we must analyze them and corroborate this evidence with other primary sources to gain a better glimpse of history.
Thank you, Ms. Mulder! I’m really enjoying myself this year.
great idea! will do next time.
I’m very proud of myself for not hitting anything, yes! I think that it would be valuable for us to have a discussion at the beginning of our next lesson before I start driving so I can focus on what I want to get across without having my attention on the road. I would also like to be able to have continued discussions as my goals progress, and for this purpose I would like to establish a more casual environment where we are comfortable with discussing my progress and proximity to my goals without a formal setting. This will likely come as I become able to function on the road in a more routine way, when the basic vehicle functions become more comfortable for me and I can maneuver myself in a more routine manner so that I can facilitate a light discussion at the same time.
Thank you Ms. Mulder for your constant support of our learning! It is indeed my pleasure to share my learning (and unanswered ominous archaeology questions) with you.
Thanks for sharing your compositions. It is a great approach to look at the original time line and fine tune it after you gained some experience with composition.
