Throughout the semester, you will be required to read Primary and Secondary Source material and write up individual answers to questions based on those documents. The purpose of these assignments is to assess the students ability to effectively analyze a question, gather appropriate information from the source or sources at hand, and write a well organized, college/university level answer that reflects the basic expectations of a history survey course. Each paper submitted is worth 50 points – 25 pts. per source analyzed and questions answered. (There are two sources in each Module).
Answers are to be in complete sentences and written in a manner demonstrating college-level communication skills. Answers that consist of one or two sentences are generally not indicative of excellent work and will be graded accordingly (unless the question dictates otherwise). Answers that consist of several paragraphs but lacking in critical analysis and proper support are also not indicative of excellent work and will be graded accordingly. Be sure to support your answers/arguments with appropriate examples/quotes from the sources. ***Proofread your work before final submittal.
For these modest writing assignments, the following formatting guidelines apply:
1). Please put your name on this paper.
2). Paper must be typed.
3). 1-inch margins should be used.
4). 12-point font should be used
5). For each source, identify the source at the top of the page, Copy and Paste, or, write out each question as provided to you on the Short Answer Question sheet. Then, provide your answer directly after the posted question.
