Overview of SCIM-C Strategy

SCIM-C Strategy by David Hicks, Peter E. Doolittle and E. Thomas Ewing


Source description: What is this document? What do you know about it? (for instance, is there a title? date? author?)


Summary Stage:  What type of historical document is it?  What specific information or details does the document provide?  What is the subject, audience or purpose of the document?  What does it directly tell us? 


Contextualizing Stage:  Who produced the document?  When, why, and where was it produced?  Do we need to find out more about its origins to answer this question?  What was happening locally, nationally, and globally at the time the document was produced? 


Inferring Stage:  What is suggested by the document?  What conclusions can be drawn from the document?  What biases are indicated in the document?  What contextualizing information, while not directly evident, may be suggested from the document?


Monitoring Stage:  What is missing from the document in terms of evidence that is needed to answer a question about life for westward pioneers?  What ideas, images, or terms need further defining in order to understand the context or period in which the source was created?  How reliable is the source?  What questions from previous stags need to be revisited in order to analyze the source satisfactorily?


Corroborating stage: What other resources could be found that relate to this document? How might these resources confirm or conflict with this document?
