The second half of the semester is underway.

The section that is due today will be highlighted below

On Wednesday, April 17th, we as a class will go to the library for a presentation on finding historical sources for your Research Paper. There will be no lecture. This meeting is one of the Mandatory Class Meetings.

On that day, come promptly to our usual classroom at the usual time. After I take roll, we will then leave as a class for the library presentation.

Come with questions related to your topic, research question, and thesis. This will be an ideal time to ask them from a trained professional.


You will be creating a history research paper on a topic drawn from U.S. History in the period covered in our course (1607-1877).

The Parts of the Research Project/ final paper due date

Paper requirements – A Checklist

  • The topic of your paper must fall within the following period — from 1607 to 1877. In the paper you must present and argue a thesis or main claim, one that the rest of your paper supports with primary and secondary historical sources.
  • The paper must be 2,500 words long with numbered pages. Doublespace it, use the New York Times font, size 12, and apply standard 1-inch margins. Your tone should be formal and objective. Avoid slang and colloquial expressions.
  • Grammar matters. This is a college paper for a college course, so I will expect college-level writing skills. Among these are correct punctuation, spelling, and grammar. If your writing skills are weak, this project will improve them. It will help you develop new skills and sharpen old ones.
  • Your paper must announce its Main Idea or Thesis in the first paragraph. That thesis must be arguable, properly limited, and it must answer your main research question. The thesis is to be argued for in your paper; a key goal of the thesis is to convince your reader that your thesis is persuasive.
  • The Support for your Thesis must include the significant use of four (4) primary sources and three (3) secondary sources. One of the secondary sources must be our textbook.
  • I will assume that all students know what plagiarism is and how to avoid it. These topics were covered in our Introductory Module of Essential Things and the Plagiarism Quiz. Avoid Plagiarism and remember the anti-plagiarism agreement in Week 1.
  • The students who do well on this project (who learn the most) are those who come and speak to me during my drop-in hours. I invite you to do so at every step of the research paper process. See the syllabus to find out what my drop-in hours are.

When Is the final research paper due? Where is it submitted?

Two versions of your final Research Paper are required:

1. The digital file of your Research Paper must be uploaded here, on this Canvas webpage by 11 a.m. PST on June 5th, 2019. Merely click on the Submit button on this page. Be sure you’re completed paper, all parts, are uploaded here in one file, and that that file is in one of the following file formats: pdf, doc, docx. No other formats will be accepted. No late work will be accepted.

2. A hard-copy of your final Research Paper must be handed in at the start of our final class meeting on June 5th. We will use that copy of your Paper for the final critiques by your fellow-students.

Again, no late work will be accepted. Do not wait until the last minute to upload your digital copy of the Research Paper. Plan ahead. Points will be lost if the student does not bring a finished and final version of their Research Paper to the final class.


One of the best works on doing a research paper is Wayne Booth et al., The Craft of Research (3rd or 4th edition). It can be found in the library and online. If you plan on going further in college, I recommend buying the book. It’s gold.

Our Canvas Course Website: throughout the semester I will post pages in the modules that discuss all the parts of our Project and offer many resources to make the Project easier to tackle. Look for these.
