constitution and new nations

This part of your paper assignment will consist of two sections: a) a short essay of approximately 2-2 ½ pages in length, and b) your answers to a series of questions about primary sources, in short-answer sentence form. The assignment should be double-spaced, using a 12-point font. Papers submitted after the due date will be penalized half a letter grade for each day late. This portion of your paper will be worth 25% of the final paper grade. SOURCES: “Constitution and New Nation” Then do the following: Read the secondary source essay (the first document in the folder, in .pdf format) in the folder you have selected. Each essay is written by a historian and offers his or her perspective on the historical event or era you have chosen. Keep in mind that the author of the essay is offering an interpretation based on his or her research and analysis of historical eras and events, and that this interpretation is not necessarily the only valid one. A). Write an essay of approximately 2–2 ½ pages on the secondary source, in which you explain and evaluate the author’s interpretation of the historical issue or developments under consideration. Your introductory paragraph must include a one-sentence summary, in your own words, of the historian’s main argument about the historical issue in question. For the body of the essay, explain each of the major points or supporting arguments made by the author in order to back up his or her main argument, as well as the kind of evidence he or she uses in making it. As you do so, be sure to address the following questions: What is the historical question or problem that the author is trying to answer or “solve”? Is there anything surprising or counterintuitive about the arguments the author makes or the evidence s/he presents? What is the significance of the author’s argument—what new light does he or she hope it will shed on the issue, and how does it offer a new lens with which to look at the period in question? Do you find the historian’s argument persuasive? Why or why not? The goal here is not to summarize, but rather to analyze and interpret the historian’s argument, drawing on your knowledge of the period or subject attained in class and from your readings. Avoid using long quotes from the essay—I’m more interested in hearing your own words. If you do quote from the secondary source, be sure to keep quotes short and to the point, and use them only when they provide evidence for your interpretation. When quoting, use quotation marks to indicate that the words are not your own. There is no need to include citations when quoting the secondary source. Cite any sources or references you may consult using Chicago style footnotes (see below). B). Next, read the three primary source documents from the same folder. Answer the following questions for each document in short-answer form, writing approximately 2-3 sentences per question. The answers to these questions may not be obvious, and may require you to do some minimal research and/or make educated “best guesses” about the documents. Unlike with your response papers, there is no need to place these answers in paragraph form—simply provide answers, numbered 1–4, for each document. 1) Who created the document? Who was this person, and what is his or her significance? (If unknown, make an educated guess about who might have created the document) 2) When was the document created? What was taking place in US history around that time that the document might be referring to? If no date is provided, make an educated guess about the approximate date of creation. 3) What was the purpose of the document? Was it meant to be persuasive, explanatory, illustrative, or something else? If persuasive, what is the author/creator trying to convince the reader of, and how is s/he making this point? If illustrative or explanatory, what is the author/creator describing or explaining? What kind of language does s/he use—is it formal? casual? educated/uneducated? angry? neutral? 4) Who was its intended audience—what kind of people would have been likely to see, read, or be responsive to this material? As long as you are clear about what source you are referring to, there is no need to cite the secondary source (essay) or primary sources. You may, however, draw from outside reading or research as well as from your textbook and lecture notes to complete this portion of the assignment. For any additional resources that you may consult, be sure to place any words that are not your own in quotes, and insert a footnote at the end of the quote or reference. Follow Chicago style citation for all footnotes, using the following guide: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/717/01/ A final note: Please familiarize yourself with the College’s statement on plagiarism, which can be found here: http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/core3/currah/acinteg.htm Plagiarism is a serious offense; any student who is found to have plagiarized on the paper will receive a failing grade for the paper and thus the course.
