Analyzing Historical Narratives

 Analyzing Historical Narratives

Overview

Each historical event was experienced, perceived, and remembered differently depending on the person, which means there are many competing narratives of a single event. In this activity, you will compare the narratives represented in each of your sources.

Prompt

Use the provided Module Four Activity Template: Historical Narratives Word Document to complete this activity. First, you will locate an additional secondary source related to your historical event. You will then compare the narratives about your historical event in each of your sources (two primary and two secondary). Finally, you will choose a narrative you believe has been the most influential in terms of what is known about your historical event.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

  • Compare the narratives presented in your primary and secondary sources relevant to your historical event.
    • Apply the source analysis skills from the previous activity to help you compare the narratives about your historical event. Describe the stories told in each source about your historical event. Provide evidence from your sources to support your descriptions of the narratives. Consider the following questions:
      • How are the narratives in each source similar and/or different?
      • How has the story of your historical event and key figure or group (identified in the previous module) been told in the past and the present?
      • From which perspectives are the narratives told?
      • What was occurring in society at the time of the event, such as politics, the economy, and entertainment?
  • Describe one narrative that has significantly influenced the contemporary understanding of your historical event.
    • Select one narrative from the four you analyzed. Choose the narrative that you think has been the most influential in terms of what is known and unknown about your historical event. Explain why you chose this narrative and how it has impacted our current understanding of the event.
  • Explain how the chosen narrative helps you better understand your historical research question.
    • How does the narrative you chose expand, support, or challenge your research question?

He was with the juvenile who stabbed the victim and admitted to police that he knew that the first juvenile had a knife and was going to rob ” some homeless people”. Juvenile #2 has been in contact with police on two prior occasions. Once for shoplifting and once for disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to alcohol counseling and anger management by the juvenile court.  Juvenile #2 told police he didn’t know that his friend was going to stab “that homeless guy”. He stated that he went along with the crime because he was bored. The victim is very upset because he feels that he was targeted because he is a loser and he believes he should be dead.Answer and discuss the following in your discussion board:

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME (THIS PART IS JUST TO GUIDE YOU): my name is Janina Lopez. I am 26 years old, and I’m from Colombia. I came to the United States 12 years ago with my parents looking for a better future. I live in Miami Florida, and I am majoring in social work.

I am a Hispanic woman; my religion is Catholic due to the beliefs of my parents, and I respect that and the religion of each person. my sexuality is heterosexual. I am a bit introverted; I like to read a lot and my state of health is very healthy and I have medical insurance. In Colombia, we lived in the middle class, but we lived very well. My parents and I had the opportunity to come to the United States. At first, it was very difficult for me to learn English since it was a new language for me since I suffered from bullying in middle school for that reason, but in the end, I was able to learn to speak and write English, which I am proud of. I like the way my parents think because they taught me that studying is very important and having a career to get ahead is not only getting married and being a housewife and having children but not depending on anyone and putting myself first and thinking about every step, I take to become the person I want to be. My family and I value things very much and we always say that things are obtained by fighting and working honestly. My family and I believe in democracy, and we do not agree with the injustices since we come from a country where many injustices are seen, and human rights are violated. That was one of the reasons why I wanted to be a social worker to respect human rights and raise my voice for those people who cannot.
