TOPIC – SLAVERY, FREEDOM, AND THE CRISIS OF THE UNION 1840-1877

The paper should support a thesis statement with information gained from research or investigation.

The paper will not be just a report presenting information, but will be a paper that carefully examines and presents your own historical interpretation of the topic you have chosen and your interpretation of the information you have gathered.

The paper may include consideration of problems and solutions, define key terms, or refute arguments against your thesis statement

 

Approach this assignment with an open and skeptical mind, then form an opinion based on what you have discovered.

You must suspend belief while you are investigating and let the discoveries shape your opinion. (This is a thesis-finding approach.)

Once you have found your thesis, write the paper to support it.

 

Choosing an appropriate topic, limiting the topic

Gathering information, summarizing sources

Analyzing and evaluating sources

Defining key terms

Synthesizing information, comparing and contrasting sources

Testing a thesis, making a historical argument, using refutation

Amassing support for a position

Documenting sources

 

Do some preliminary reading on the topic(s). You may begin with the textbook, then further explore the information available. Refine your topic. Summarize your topic, your interest in the topic, the questions you want to answer, and a hypothesis you want to test.

Gather information from a variety of sources. Use a minimum of four sources for your paper, and at least one must be a primary source.

Examples of primary sources are ones that are used in our discussion forums 2 – 8.

They are sources that are contemporary to the times under investigation.

An example of a secondary source is our textbook, though the textbook also contains excerpts of primary sources, which you may use as a source in your paper.

Be sure to include a works cited list and use MLA documentation style.
