Storyboard Text

  • Things to Consider: When you are reading a primary source (something that is produced at the time of the event) it is important to remember a few things!
  • The perspective: the person writing their journal entry is writing from a particular perspective – that means, you need to be careful when reading the information that you remember this person is writing from their OWN perspective. This doesn’t mean they are right or that you have to agree with them.
  • The context: the context that this person is writing in is very important. We have the benefit of hindsight so we know how colonisation devastated the Indigenous community. This person is writing at a time when the First Fleet landed. The purpose: as these are journal entries, the purpose of the source is probably personal.
