Philippine History Portal

 

links to primary sources, historical questions, local histories, and teaching resources

 



What can you find on this site?

  • links to eyewitness accounts of key events in Philippine history (Pigafetta's chronicle, Rizal's diaries, Jose Abad Santos' letters)
  • links to important historical documents (Philippine declaration of independence, Rizal's works, versions of the Philippine constitution)
  • links to classic interpetations of historical questions (Constantino's Veneration without Understanding)
  • links to provincial histories and tips in using primary sources and historical documents in the teaching of Philippine history (soon)

Why primary sources?

  • Many students consider the study of history as boring and uninteresting.
  • Use of primary sources enliven history and allows the student to experience vicariously (i.e. through reading) what others experienced as they lived through history.
  • Simply put, use of primary sources puts the story back in history.
