Your teacher assigns you a research paper on political changes in the United States during the Civil War. Which source would best aid your research? A. a textbook chapter discussing Abraham Lincoln’s presidency B. an atlas showing famous battles and events during the war C. a book containing the letters of a US senator during the war D. a phone interview with a famous Civil War political historian
You would want something that is objective and provides the most unbiased, third-person perspective to the RELEVANT ideas. A - Is that relevant? I think not. B - Well it is objective and unbiased, but it is not relevant. C - It may be a bit subjective but it can offer ideas on the political changes, because it's a senator. So it's relevant. D - It's not relevant as he/she cannot show the political changes.
