Offer a 4-5 page, typed, stapled, double-spaced paper which explains the major causes and results for one of the following historical events or periods: Zaire’s Civil War (1960’s) Algerian Civil War (1950’s and 1960’s) Nigerian Civil War (vs. Biafra) (1966-1970) Due Date: March 3, 2016 Grade: Papers will be graded based on organization (In your introduction, be sure to have a thesis statement outlining the main points which will be considered in your essay.), historical evidence/support for your argument(s), analysis, neatness, and a bibliography. Please attach a list of the three (or more) sources (bibliography) which you consulted, being sure to list the full title, author’s full name, and date of publication. While you may use scholarly websites in addition to books or journal articles, the use of Wikipedia is strongly discouraged because of the potential for significant errors and the lack of scholarly review. You should try to include at least one book (other than your textbook) as a source. Plagiarized papers, in whole or part, will receive a zero. While you are encouraged to research the causes of the event which you choose and not limit yourself to your textbook, the explanation for these events is to be in your words, not someone else’s.
