Question Description

Need help with my History question - I’m studying for my class.

Students will view these films and then create a researched and supported argument. The key questions are given above. All of them revolve around the issue of doing “good history.” Each one of them requires an answer to the question and then support of your answer. Why do you say that?

In order to do this and have a verifiable argument, you will need to have a minimum of five sources (three of which MUST be academic sources).

Each argument is to be a minimum of 5 pages (1250 words). This does not include a title page, charts/photos, and Assignment submission checklist: Formatting

 Each of the paragraphs begins with a topic sentence

 Topic sentences are not statements of fact. Rather, they are debatable/arguable statements.


5  Conclusion does not merely restate the thesis. Rather, it suggests why this argument is important


 Quotations are used to support the argument

 Quotations are properly cited

 Paragraphs do not begin or end with quotations

 Quotations are introduced with appropriate contextualisation and signal phrasing. They are then

 Unnecessary words in the quotation are replaced with elipses (...)
