These are some of the pre-approved authors for History 1302. Must be a 5 page paper.
I. Describe why the topic is important for two paragraphs, summarize the contents for two-three paragraphs (in your own words, of course).
II. Explain the author’s particular angle for two paragraphs (read reviews to help in this portion). What is the author’s thesis? Do you find the author’s argument convincing? What sort of biases does the author bring to the table? Tap into Rear Defogger on the History Hub tab for this portion. In this part of the review, use some direct quotes with page numbers in parenthesis (p1). In this section, put a greater emphasis on the author’s thesis than his/her biases — that is the key. What is the author trying to argue?
III. Finally, conclude with how well you liked or disliked the book and why in the last paragraph. Would you recommend it? How did it change your view of the subject or your view of history?
