Syllabus:
QuickLesson 3: Flawed Records Elizabeth Shown Mills, “QuickLesson 3: Flawed Records,” Evidence Explained: Historical Analysis, Citation & Source Usage (https://www.evidenceexplained.com/content/quicklesson-3-flawed-records : accessed 24 Mar 2016).

There is no registration fee for this DearMYRTLE Study Group. However, if attendees find these educational discussions useful, consider the pay what you want business model DearMYRTLE employs.

The goal is to study the QuickLesson,
then figure out how it applies in your personal research.
  • How does your research "thinking" compare to the ideals posed by ESM?
  • What part of this QuickLesson inspired you to take a different course of action?
  • Has there been a research breakthrough after studying this QuickLesson?
Study group filmstrip panel participants are advised read this lesson and submit links to their homework in advance of our meeting, publishing each week's homework either in their blogs or as a public Google Doc, described in the video Creating Google Docs: For DearMYRTLE Study Group Homework. The research scenarios described in our homework illustrate participant understanding of the principles Elizabeth describes in her QuickLesson. 
Motivated hangout viewers may also submit homework, though there may not be enough time to review such additional homework during the live discussion. Ol' Myrt here reads every submission, and appreciates your efforts. The very act of submitting homework enhances the author's ability to assimilate the sound research methodologies suggested by the ESM.

Hangouts: Pay what you want. So it's simple. If you value the work Ol' Myrt, +Cousin Russ and our beloved panelists do week in and week out on your behalf, please:
