Exam 2

Exam 2: The Crusades ANSWER ALL PARTS OF BOTH QUESTIONS Question 1: What were the Military Orders? What problems did they create? What problems did they solve? What was their importance in the Crusades? Did they matter, ultimately in the crusades in Iberia and the Holy Land? Question 2: Examine the fates of the Fourth Crusade and Fifth Crusade. Who, what, where, and why did they occur? What were their consequences? Did they strengthen or weaken the crusaders’ position? USE PRIMARY SOURCES as well as your textbooks. You do not need to go outside of the sources we have for class reading assignments. At the beginning of your paper clearly state your argument and support it throughout. Use MLA style for notes and include a Works Cited portion referencing the resources which you used in your answers.

Exam 2 is due by 11:59 PM on Sunday, November 22. 10 Points will be deducted for each 24-hour period of tardiness after this time and date. Grading: Your essay will include references done in MLA format. For information on MLA style in referencing, see: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/04/ (Links to an external site.) Please restrict yourself to the sources assigned to you in this class. You should not seek additional material. This is an argumentative historical essay to demonstrate your awareness of the historical issues, evidence base, and ways in which historians approach these problems. You must include a ‘Works Cited’ section in which you will include all the sources you used to write your paper. A essay: Answers all parts of the questions in full, precise manner Includes references and works cited section Meets length and formatting requirements Clearly and concisely written Strong argumentation – clearly developed position and support the position with well-selected evidence Detailed discussion and precise information: correct names, dates, events are included Evidence taken from in-class discussion/lecture and primary source readings Minimal issues of grammar/spelling Avoids superfluous/tangential material Has clear introduction/body/conclusion B essay: Clearly answers all parts of the questions but lacks deep support and relies on limited evidence Meets length and formatting requirements Includes references and works cited section Evidence from lecture and readings presented in support of a clear argument Discussion and information still has good level of detail, but more important points such as names, dates, or figures are lacking or incorrect Minimal issues of grammar/spelling Limited tangential material or items that do not advance the argument Has clear introduction/body/conclusion C essay Argumentation is weak or not fully developed – eg. There is limited support for assertions, limited discussion of the historical significance of events/people or cited data Includes references and works cited section May have problems with meeting length and/or formatting requirements Does not clearly and concisely answer all parts of the question Lacks specific details and evidence (too general) Largely descriptive with only limited narrative detail Largely factually correct with only limited errors of fact Relies on unsupported assertions Lacks reference to readings for class and class lecture and discussion as evidence Vague in its organization (lacking clearly distinct introduction/body/conclusion) Grammar/spelling issues are noticeable Lack of clarity in argument or presentation of supporting facts May stray off topic or include considerable superfluous material D/F essay: Does not meet requirements of length and formatting Does not answer all or most of the questions asked Defective works cited or uses poor quality historical sources Does not produce an argument Does not produce any supporting material from class/readings Poorly organized Distracting/serious issues with grammar and/or spelling May lack significant information of relevance to the topic under discussion Plus/minus grades will be used – these allow flexibility for instructor assessment. What do I reference? The basic general facts of history, such as the actors in a given situation or the dates in which they occur are not required. E.g. the Battle of Hattin was fought on July 4, 1187. This is general knowledge and would not require a footnote to support the information. However, if you decide to write about the specifics of the day of the battle and some scholars think a certain event happened at 9 AM and others feel the same event happened at noon, this is not considered general fact. It is historically controversial and would require a note referencing the various sources at the point where they disagree. The second point where you reference works is when there is analysis (this is by definition not accepted fact and open to question) that you include that is not your own. For example, you find an author who decides that Queen Sibyl was having a secret affair and that this affected the political course of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. If you agree with this assessment and you place any of this interpretive information from this author in your paper, you will need to cite that source and note the page where the specific details you mention are located. Never feel ashamed about clearly stating where your details came from. Nota bene: any essay must represent your own work. What does ‘your work’ mean? It means you cannot simply cut and paste different facts and opinions of others together and have it suffice. For instance, students are often tempted to string together a narrative from secondary sources and use big doses of quotations to meet the word limit. Neither approach produces original, analytical work. In history, the historian gathers his/her information, reads the sources available, as well as the opinions on this information posited by other scholars. (S)he then determines which facts are relevant to his/her argument and what interpretations are valid based on reasoned analysis, logic and intuition. Even though you are not professional historians as undergraduates, you are asked to mimic the process whereby professional historians make their judgments in order to understand how the historical process works.
