HIS 117 Journal Guidelines and Rubric Beginning Research

Overview: Journals are private communication between you and the instructor. They are also an opportunity to get feedback on key components of your final project. Before submission, be sure to check your assignment against the rubric below.

Prompt: For this journal assignment, submit an assignment in which you begin your research for your final paper. You should include the following:

 Your Topic: Brainstorm reasons humans created societies, states, and empires in the premodern world. At this point, your topic should be a rough idea that you would like to explore and refine over the next few modules. Provide reasons for your choice. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Humans created societies, states, and empires in the late Neolithic period to 1500 CE in order to accomplish the following: o Maintain a common defense o Allow for the growth of individuals o Guarantee admission to heaven

 Your Research Focus: Identify three specific empires, states, or societies that you will research and analyze in your paper. Choose three societies, states, or empires from the following world regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, or the Americas. You may want to glance through the textbook to get ideas. You will analyze these societies, states, and empires as examples to prove your thesis. In your journal assignment, provide the reasons you chose them.

 Sources: Consider the sources of primary and secondary information you can use to begin your research by exploring the links in the Research Guide document. Choose at least one primary and one secondary source and cite them in Turabian style. You can refer to the History webpage for the Shapiro Library as a guide, as well as this video on primary and secondary sources.

Guidelines for Submission: Your journal assignment should be 400 to 500 words in length with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Cite your sources using Turabian style.
