Final Paper Most people think of history only in terms of academic history and the writing of history in terms of school textbooks, filled with facts and detail. Yet, fiction, especially when well written and thoroughly researched, can also help us understand the past. Of course, when we read fiction, we need to be careful not to interpret it as fact; rather, we need to read it as a tool for understanding the mood of historical times. Your paper for this class will interpret a piece of California fiction in terms of how it reflects the history of the state and the experiences of Californians as part of that history. Writing this paper involves three steps, each of which requires you to turn in a written paper. Step 1: Choosing a novel and writing a proposal (due Week 3) The first thing you need to decide is which piece of fiction to write about. I have listed several titles for you to choose from under the attachment “California Fiction.” If you have another book in mind, you need to consult with me before starting your project. Once you have chosen the book and done some research on it and its author, you need to write a project proposal. This proposal needs to be double-spaced, and include the following elements: 1. 2. 3. 4. Your name Title, author, and publication information of the book of your choice One-paragraph synopsis of the subject matter of the book One-paragraph discussion of why you chose this book (what specifically about the author, subject matter, time period it depicts interests you) 5. Short biography of the author and his/her relationship to California (no more than two pages) 6. Proper footnotes or endnotes (See “Course Resources” page for links on how to write footnotes/endnotes) Step 2: Creating an outline and annotated bibliography (due Week 7) Once you start reading the book, you need to determine its major themes and how they reflect the history of our state. To be able to accomplish this goal, you need to research the historical time period in the book and the particular issue/s it depicts. I would like you to consult at least three different sources. The following are examples of possible source materials: scholarly books and articles (also ones published online); Internet websites (museums, National Archives, Smithsonian, etc.); newspapers; visual material (historical photography etc.); primary source materials. The assignment (double-spaced) needs to include the following elements: • • Your name Title, author and publication information for the book • • • One-paragraph introduction where you address the issues that have come up in your research (these issues can be questions you still have, problems in researching the topics, or just a general discussion of how your project is going—the point is to give me a good sense of how things are going so that I can give you some meaningful advice in my feedback). A detailed outline for the paper—again, I need to have enough information about how you plan to approach the book and to connect it with historical fact so that I can provide feedback and suggestions Annotated bibliography (see “Course Resources” page for links on how to write one) Step 3: Writing the paper (due Week 9) The paper itself needs to focus on the book as a reflection of the human experience at the particular historical time it depicts. In other words, your paper needs to analyze the book as a reflection of history and how it facilitates our understanding of the particular historical time and experience it depicts. Do not write an English paper that analyzes the book as literature! You also should not retell the story in the book; focus on the analysis. The paper (doublespaced) needs to include the following elements: • • • • • • Cover page with your name and appropriate title for paper One paragraph introduction with your thesis statement about the book as reflection of history Analysis that discusses the historical themes in the novel and how they connect to historical fact (6-8 pages); use specific examples from the book to illustrate your points Conclusion with a reflection on value of book as tool for understanding the past Proper footnotes or endnotes (See ”Course Resources” page) Proper bibliography (See “Course Resources”) Example: Many of you have probably read, or at least are familiar with, John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath (which is why it is not on the list), a novel about the Joad family experience as migrants to California during the depression. If I were to write about this book, I would give a very brief historical background to the Great Depression and its impact on average Americans. I would focus the paper on discussing how the Joad family experience reflects the larger Okie experience in California. I would also reflect on Steinbeck’s motivation for writing this book at the time (1930s). A B Well-developed introduction that engages the reader and creates interest in the topic. Clear thesis statement and placement of topic in historical context. Conclusion effectively wraps up and goes beyond restating the thesis. Introduction creates interest and places topic in historical context. Thesis states the position. Conclusion effectively summarizes topics but does not explore implications. Introduction attempts to place topic in historical context but lacks clarity. Thesis statement unclear. Conclusion is recognizable and ties up some loose ends. Lacks historical context, or the context is misinterpreted. No clear thesis statement. MAIN POINTS Well-developed points that directly relate to thesis. Supporting evidence is clear, relevant, and detailed enough to inform the reader. Points are clear but not developed in detail. Supporting evidence is relevant but not always clearly presented. Main points are there but lack clarity. Supporting evidence not effectively linked to the main points. Poor development of ideas. Lack of evidence in support of points. ORGANIZATION Logical progression of ideas with a clear structure that enhances the thesis. Transitions are mature and graceful. Logical progression of ideas. Transitions are present equally throughout essay. Essay does not always proceed logically. Unclear transitions. No discernable organization. Lack of clear transitions. STYLE AND MECHANICS Writing is smooth, skillful, coherent. Sentences are strong and expressive with varied structure. Punctuation, spelling, capitalization are correct. Writing is clear and sentences have varied structure. Punctuation, spelling, capitalization are generally correct, with few errors. Writing is somewhat unclear and sentences lack variety. Errors in punctuation, spelling, capitalization. Writing is confusing, hard to follow. Contains fragments and/or run-on sentences. Distracting errors in punctuation, spelling, capitalization. CITATION OF SOURCES Proper citation of sources in footnotes or endnotes; appropriate formatting of notes and bibliography. Proper citation of Inconsistent citation Mostly lacks source sources but failure of sources; citation; errors in to use formatting errors. formatting. footnotes/endnotes. Appropriate formatting of bibliography. INTRODUCTION Background/History Thesis Statement CONCLUSION Development of thesis and evidence in support of it Structure Transitions Sentence flow, variety Spelling, punctuation, capitalization Foot/endnotes, bibliography C D Conclusion does not summarize main points or is missing altogether. An F essay demonstrates a total misunderstanding of the assignment and/or shows very little effort to complete the assignment.
