Project #67296 - History paper

One way of seeing how the past influences the present is by paying attention to current events. Write about a current event and describe how it relates to topics or historical thinking skills discussed in class. Articles can be news reports or opinion pieces.

The three paragraphs of your essay should include:

First paragraph

Some context for the current event, as best as you are able (use von Sivers or another news article)

A brief summary of the news article

Second paragraph

Discussion of how the news article relates to something we have read or discussed in class, whether a specific event or development, or an application of historical thinking to the present

If relating the article to a historical event or development, use at least one of the following: von Sivers, Hochschild, Satrapi, a relevant primary source

Third paragraph

Discussion of the significance of the current event and its historical connection

 You must also cite your source(s) and on a separate page, include a list of works cited. When citing online articles that do not have page numbers, indicate which paragraph the information is taken from (see sample essay).
