Journal #2

Main point:

Some historical sources are better than others, and the reasons for that

What I want to achieve:

I want the class to understand that some sources are better to use in history, and the reasons why the source is better. I will be explaining significance and would like to clearly articulate my message so that the whole class can learn what significance with historical sources means. They should be able to determined a good source from a worse one once we are done. I also want to make sure that my group and I stay within the time limit for our presentation.
