I am looking for an English or German-speaking guide to source interpretation for undergraduate history students.
I have enough material on source criticism, but what I lack is a good guide that shows novice students precisely what to look for when interpreting sources. Miriam Dobson's and Benjamin Ziemann's checklist in their introduction in the volume "Reading Primary Sources" (Routledge, 2009) is beneficial because it introduces in short paragraphs key concepts, metaphors, binary distinctions, the reality effect of sources and so on. This is precisely the content I want to share with the class. However, students find the text too difficult to understand, as I have seen. Therefore, I am looking for additional concrete guides on source interpretation. Any suggestions for online or printed material?
I really appreciate any help you can provide.
