History - Writers choice, Essay
Using the Annual Editions (a book on recent articles on Western Civilization that are based on recent research), select three articles for examples. The articles in the book may represent a new interpretation of long debated issues or the emergence of new issues. Write an essay in which you assess how these articles reflect late twentieth century interest in the choice of topics, research methods, and interpretations. The three articles you choose may relate to one topic, such as women in history, military history, our the history of religion; they may focus on one historical period; or they can represent multiple topics and time periods. The essay must include an intro paragraph, 3-5 body paragraphs that represent the information that supports your thesis , and a concluding paragraph. Two pages.
As you develop the essay, consider the following questions:
•what is the basic interpretation (thesis) that each article presents?
•Does it appears that there interpretation is based on solid evidence?
•What type of historical research had been used to produce the information discussed in the articles?
•What issues, values, and/or concerns appear to have motivated historians to pursue this research and to write the articles?
•Does the article appear to be driven by the author's desire to improve the reader's understanding of the historical period or to convince the reader of the author's position?
