Question and answer
Q: why knowing how to identify and use primary source materials is important for academic reading and writing.
A: In academic writing original sources provide an eyewitness account of the event being researched. [ These primary sources represent the most direct understanding of the subject, principally because they are the product of persons recording the events as they occurred or shortly thereafter. Original documents, however, also contain inherent weaknesses such as possible bias, how long after the
event they were recorded, and whether they reflect typical or atypical views. Taking notes and understanding the basic history of the time will improve your comprehension when reading primary sources. ]
