Four steps of Research project:
The research project consists of the following steps:
Step #1. TOPIC/THESIS Statement: 40 points/10 percent of final grade. Due week 2. Take some time to think about a historical event or person you would like to know more about. You will use this topic for all aspects of the research project. Grading criteria: For this first assignment, submit a full paragraph describing your topic, why you’re interested in it, and its historical significance. Develop a thesis statement reflecting the questions/issues to be addressed in your research.
Step #2. ANNOTATED LIST OF EIGHT SECONDARY SOURCES: 80 points. Due week 4. Secondary sources include books, articles, and websites about topics in history. There is a great deal of information available on the web and you can do much research from your computer. However, not everything on the web is suitable for academic research. This assignment will help you evaluate sites that you find on the free web.
For each of your secondary sources, write a separate entry (at least a full paragraph) that includes the following information: (1) a full citation the type of primary source; a summary (annotation) of the information; and (3) explanation of how the item pertains to your topic.
Step # 3. ANNOTATED LIST OF THREE PRIMARY SOURCES: 60 points. Due week 6.
