For this assignment, you must pick a historical topic, within the timeframe of this course, and write a three to four page paper on the topic. See topics on page 2 below.
Now that you have a topic: Your paper must include the following:
(1.)What is your opinion on the topic? You can state this in your introductory paragraph.
(2.)What is the evidence for your viewpoint? Please provide this in the content of your paper. Remember do not write in 1st or 2nd person within the content of the paper. Since, this is a history class; you will have to find concrete and reliable evidence for your viewpoint. CITE YOUR SOURCES! Just listing them in the bibliography or reference page does not mean your sources are cited. You must have at least two primary sources and as many secondary sources as you like. You must use Chicago citation style if you are a history major and you may use APA if you are not a history major. If you quote someone you must cite the source, if you paraphrase, you must cite the source. Use footnotes or endnotes cite your sources if you use Chicago and use in-text citations to cite your sources when using APA style.
(3.)Summary: summarize your paper in the last paragraph.
The paper MUST be typed in Microsoft word using Times New Roman font (12), double spaced, with the preset margins. Students must submit the historical topic paper no later than Sunday by 11:59pm EST. Late papers will not be accepted unless approved prior to the due date by me. No exceptions! See topics below
