Day 13:

Reliability and Usefulness

Reliability and Usefulness
Understanding how different sources have different levels of reliability and usefulness
By the end of this lesson you will be able to judge the reliability and usefulness of a range of historical sources
Activity
• Demonstrate a few sources from various contexts and show examples of your judgement of reliability and usefulness – note: teacher will need to pre-prepare these
• Give students a range of sources from a familiar context and ask them to deconstruct the sources by judging their reliability and usefulness from as many angles as they can
• Students then swap their judgments with others three or four times to see a range of judgements of reliability and usefulness
