Thesis and Sources
The final essay must have a “thesis” or central argument. Your essay must be both informative and argumentative. The thesis is your “stance” or “interpretation” of the events, based on your research sources. The sources you must rely on are:
1. A primary source…this is an original history document typically located on the internet thru a college, library, museum, or university website.
2. A scholarly book…most history books at a college or public library qualify as “scholarly” books because they are peer reviewed and written by professional historians or researchers.
3. A scholarly journal article…You can identify scholarly journals by their titles and content, which typically contain tightly focused material; for example the Journal of American History will have articles about politics, the economy, social movements, military history, or famous historical persons and ideas, all written by professional historians or researchers.
For scholarly journal articles, I will also accept a peer reviewed article from “The Economist”, “National Geographic”, “Popular Mechanics”, “The Atlantic”.
4. An encyclopedia entry with author…these are short, paragraph or page-long articles typically found on the internet. Wikipedia, history.com and similar sites do not count because their authorship is typically anonymous.
