Primary Source Primary sources that are thoughtfully selected can help to bring history and cultures to life for students. Most basically, they are defined as the direct evidence of a time and place that you are studying – any material (documents, objects, etc.) that was produced by eyewitnesses to or participants in an event or historical moment under investigation. Secondary sources, in contrast, are interpretations – often generated by scholars – that are based upon the examination of multiple primary sources. Documentaries are considered primary source
PALMER INTERVIEW He serves two purposes Primary Source because he was part of the documentary and was an eyewitness in Japan. Secondary Source because he is providing commentary and an interpretation of a given topic/history.
MLA CITATION FOR LIVE INTERVIEW Personal interviews. In citations for interviews and personal communications, the name of the person interviewed or the person from whom the communication is received should be listed first. This is followed by the name of the interviewer or recipient, if given, and supplemented by details regarding the place and date of the interview/communication. Unpublished interviews and personal communications (such as face-to-face or telephone conversations, letters, s, or text messages) are best cited in text or in notes rather than in the bibliography. Published interviews should be like periodical articles or book chapters. Example: Palmer, Mark. Personal Interview. 5 Dec
CITING IT IN THE RESEARCH PAPER In an interview with Mark Palmer, he said that he felt “Sea World sucks.” (no parenthetical citation required) Most activists feel that aquariums are not identifying the problem, some even stating that “SeaWorld sucks” (Palmer)..
LISTENING We are going to listen for five minutes. I want you to copy down anything Palmer says that stands out—even if it does not apply to your paper. Listen for a good sound byte.
Write a mini-paragraph M ain Idea- Pull out one main idea from what he is talking about. The big topic he is discussing. E vidence: Paraphrase what he is discussing and then insert the direct quote and cite properly. A nalysis L ead out- Tidy up your paragraph
SHARE & Exit Picking one person to put their paragraph on the board. What do you like about the “MEAL” technique? What questions do you have about applying it?
