The purpose of this research paper is to enhance your abilities as a researcher, writer, editor, student and future professional. You will be required to choose a historical topic and demonstrate what you have learned in your tenure as a student. Instructions You are required to write an analytical paper on a historical topic of your choice. You are required to choose a topic within the confines of the course, the years 2000 BCE to 1648 CE. Topics should not be too broad, such as The Fall of the Roman Empire or the Founding of the Catholic Church. You will be graded on your analytical and organizational abilities, as well as your writing and grammar. Minimum Requirements: Your paper must meet or exceed these minimum requirements. • Minimum of approximately 1,500 words. (I will be checking.) You will lose ten points for every 100 words below the minimum limit. • Your work needs to be cited in Chicago format with footnotes. There will be no excuse for not having proper citations. There are plenty of materials on my website and the internet on how to do this. No Citations = No Grade • A minimum of three primary sources and four secondary sources – The secondary sources must be journal articles. (i.e. Jstor) • The paper must be submitted to by the time class begins. No Submission = No Grade • Using Quotes – You may only use two direct quotes in your paper. You will be deducted 5 points for each quote over two. • PLEASE DO NOT SUMMARIZE YOUR LECTURE NOTES Selecting a Topic – Selecting a topic for your paper is an important part of the research process. Select a topic that is both interesting to you and that there are enough available resources available. First, the topic must be interesting to you because you will find the paper more difficult to complete if you quickly lose interest. Secondly, you want to choose a topic that has enough available information, for example writing about pre-Columbian Native American societies, you may run into the problem of a lack of primary sources.
