History: Primary Source in Historical Context

TYPE: Essay



The Final Paper (Primary Source Analysis Paper) must examine a primary source in historical context. (4-7 pages, double-spaced, 12 pt. font, using proper academic writing and citation format) You need to choose the primary source yourself as well as do the secondary reading for the historical context. You must hand in the following preliminary materials: – Abstract that states the source and describes the historical context in which it will be analyzed. This needs to have the main question of interest. – A bibliography that is constructed properly and lists the primary source and secondary source you use – A first draft, which you will be reviewed by a peer of yours. – A final draft (due on the last day of the class) , which has a clear thesis and quotes from the source, using the proper citation.
