In this assignment, each student will write an analysis of a single scholarly secondary source related to a topic covered in this course. The topic must have been a historical event that took place between the years 1400 and 2000. All papers must include citations and a bibliography/references page. Students must select a secondary source from JSTOR. An article selected from any other location will not be acceptable to use in this assignment.
Scholarly secondary sources can provide you with background information and offer analysis of the event or work by those removed one or more steps from the event or work itself. Scholarly articles are written by experts studying in a particular field, offering credibility to your research by providing interpretation of material by scholars. Secondary sources look beyond a particular event or artifact and can broaden your perspective and research. They can also provide historical perspective based on other events that have taken place since the original event or work.
These papers are not opinion papers and should not contain your opinion on the events, but rather a thorough analysis of the information that addresses the document’s context and purpose including any questions that remain unanswered by this document. For purposes of this activity, you should confine your resources and citations to the article and your course text. Incorporate citations and reference as appropriate to the topic you are discussing. However, you should not be using large “cut and paste” blocks of quotes simply to fill space. Your citations should have meaning.
Turnitin is used to evaluate the authenticity and originality of student work. Turnitin is automatically embedded within the assignment dropbox, so students will not need to take any additional steps to upload their document to Turnitin. Once Turnitin has evaluated the student document, the dropbox will update with an originality score. Students are encouraged to submit work early so that they can make edits based on their Turnitin originality score. Keep in mind that Turnitin evaluates the amount of unoriginal work, so the lower the originality percentage, the better. Any document with an originality score higher than 45% is an automatic zero for the assignment. Points may still be deducted on documents with an originality score of less than 45% based on grading rubric criteria.
Your paper should take the form of a coherent essay, with a clear introduction, body, and conclusion that addresses the following four analysis objectives. Each analysis objective should have its own paragraph in your paper, with the exception of analysis objective 3, which should be divided into three separate paragraphs.
Analysis Objective 1: Well formed introduction on the general topic that also contains the author’s name, title of the source, when it was produced, and a clearly written thesis statement
Analysis Objective 2: A thorough analysis of the author. For primary sources this means evaluating the author’s background, connection to the historical event, and any bias the author may have. For secondary sources evaluate the author’s academic background to include their education, scholarly posts they have held or currently hold, other published works, and any other pertinent information that illustrates their authority to write on the topic academically.
Analysis Objective 3: In three separate paragraph pull out three important elements and analyze why they represent key information relevant to the source.
Analysis Objective 4: Describe the author’s purpose or intent in writing the source as part of a well-formed conclusion paragraph.
