Examine the Suzanne Gaudry trial source

This assignment requires multiple steps, which are listed below. Take your time with this, and begin well ahead of the due date so that you have plenty of time to think through the material. 

  1. Please review the grading rubric for the assignment.
  2. Return to the Intro Module and review what constitutes a primary vs. a secondary source, so that you are sure to meet the rubric requirements while furthering your comprehension of the place and importance of original (primary) sources in the study of history.
  3. Please be sure that you have watched/explored the PowerPoint and all other required resourceslisted on the module resources page, including the interactive witch accusation maps and the additional witch persecution/hysteria links.
  4. Please be sure that you have read chapters 14 and 15 in the textbook (Hunt et al., The Making of the West: Peoples and Cultures–Concise History, vol. II) and those same chapters in the Lualdi primary source reader.
  5. You will then closely examine the Suzanne Gaudry trial source (found in the Lualdi sourcebook reader) using the Evidence Interpretation Notetaker form-1.docxform (see below for more on this), making specific, analytical connections to numerous other assigned resources for the unit (see first two bullet points, above) and noting questions where applicable. Be as specific as you can.
    • The document of focus here is the Gaudry trial source, and you will connect this document specifically to various assigned resources.
    • Numerous entries are required on the form in order to earn a high or perfect score. Depth and detail matter.
  6. Please download the form provided, type in your responses, save your work, and then re upload the evidence/interpretation notetaker form as a file attachment. 

PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT SUBMIT THIS AS A PAGE UPLOAD. TO BE CONSIDERED FOR CREDIT, YOU MUST SUBMIT THIS AS A DOCUMENT FILE UPLOAD–MS WORD, PDF, OR THE MAC EQUIVALENT–WITH NOTATIONS IN THE MARGINS, EITHER HANDWRITTEN OR IN EDITING MODE (SEE ABOVE).

 

Additional guidelines for this assignment:

  • Please docite specific sources within the notetaker, but this might be accomplished within the notes; it doesn’t necessary have to be in parentheses–your choice.  If sources are not cited, credit will not be earned.
  • In terms of format/what we’re looking for:
    • In the left column, you will note things as you read the Gaudry trial document (found in your source reader).  EVERY ENTRY IN THE LEFT COLUMN SHOULD STEM FROM THE GAUDRY TRIAL DOCUMENT FOUND IN THE LAULDI READER.Please include specific page number(s) where this information was found. On the right, you will make connections between this and other sources from the course–such as the Malleus Maleficarum, the witch trials and other map resources, the textbook, the PowerPoint, and other listed resources for the module. Cite the specific source, and provide a page number)s) when connecting to other print resources.
      • For ex., on the left you might make a note of a specific line of text from the Gaudry document or something specific concerning the document, and on the right you might connect to a particular sentence or section within the textbook that supports this/contradicts this/raises questions for you. Again, be specific.
      • Your next entry will do the same–on the left, you note something from the Gaudry trial doc, and on the right you might connect this time to the PowerPoint and/or to a another primary source resource assigned (see web links, etc.).
      • Try to make connections between the trial document and at least two other sources. Extra credit will be considered for effective, specific, detailed connections between the trial document and numerous additional sources.
    • The rubric gives specific requirements in terms of entries and scoring.
