Project #22502 - Term Paper

ERM PAPER

This is your chance to conduct historical research. Choose a topic relevant to the course which covers western history from approximately 3000BCE to the European Reformation the in 16th century AD. Some possible topics include comparing the teachings of Plato and Aristotle and their influence on Western History; The spread of Christianity during the time of Roman Empire; the influence of Martin Luther on the Reformation; or the creation of the Hellenistic World and its influence on Rome and western civilization.  You are not limited to these topics but I offer these as examples of what you might chose.

You must obtain my approval on your topic at least two weeks before the term paper is due.  You may email or private message me with your choice of topic. Once approved, research the topic, using primary and secondary source material. The paper will be 4–5 pages. The paper should be formatted according to Chicago style manual. If you have any questions about this style, please contact the UMUC Effective Writing Center (EWC) and check appropriate Web sites. You will need to use 3-5 sources and you may not use an encyclopedia or your textbook for a source. This paper is worth 25 points. Your grade will be determined based on the following criteria: use of appropriate sources will be worth 4 points;  a clear thesis will be worth 3 points; supporting and proving your thesis will be worth 10 points; a strong conclusion will be worth 3 points; and a ducment that is carefully proofread without major spelling or grammar errors will be worth five points. Note that failure to use Chicago manual of style will reult in 2 points being deducted from the total grade.

CHICAGO MANUAL OF STYLE

 

Please notice that you are required by the history department to use the Chicago Manual of style on the two papers in this class. In your introductory English course, you were introduced to the fundamentals of term-paper writing and to different forms of bibliographic and note citation, for example MLA style, as developed by the Modern Language Association. Among historians, the preferred form is known as "University of Chicago" or "Chicago style." If you are interested, you can find all the detailed explanations for this form in The Chicago Manual of Style, a hardcover guide published by the University of Chicago Press.

 

Luckily, a more accessible and less costly guide to University of Chicago style is available in paperback—Kate Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations. This work offers in a concise format all the information you will need for compiling notes and preparing bibliographies for your history courses. Using this well-known and respected resource along with theUMUC Guide to Writing and Research will help you improve your writing. For your convenience, you can find several basic guides to Chicago style on the Web, including one athttp://www.umuc.edu/library/libhow/citationresources.cfm.
