CLASS PAPER - HISTORY I & II
1. Select a book on a person or topic that is discussed in the textbook and bring it to me for approval. Choose a book you want to read. Be sure you can meet the requirements of the paper with the book. Do not choose a picture book or a book written for lower level students. Don`t select a book solely because it is skinny. Many thin books are dry reading. Books with 400 or 500 pages may be much more interesting. (Read smart. You don`t have to read every word on every line on every page to get the value from a book.)
2. Read the book. Keep the requirements of the paper in mind as you read the book. Take notes as you read. Develop an outline of your paper from your notes.
3. Write a first draft. Edit the draft by correcting spelling errors, improving sentence structure, clarifying your thoughts, etc. Ask someone to look over your draft. Me, for example. Remember, your paper needs to be error-free.
4. Give a brief overview of your book so I can understand what the book covers. Then write your summary in at least 3 parts as explained on page 2 with one purpose in mind: Convince me that you read and understood the book. Don`t be so general that I wonder if your summary came from your lecture notes or an article in an encyclopedia.
5. In each part of the summary, devote as much space as you can to the comparison. The summary is the easier part to do. Don`t bother to tell me that the book you read goes into more detail than your other sources. I already know that! Discuss what the book and your sources have in agreement. Tell how they disagree. What are the differences in emphasis? Which explains the subject better? If one source has no information on a part of the summary, find an alternative source
6. Close with your insights. You may use the personal pronoun "I" because these are your personal thoughts on the book you read. What did you get out of the book? Did you benefit from it? Did you dislike it? If so, why? Do you recommend it for others to read?
> Give the name of the author and title of book in your first sentence of the paper.
> Titles of books need to be underlined or in quotes.
> Cite the page number whenever you quote a passage. Example: (Divine, p. 86)
> Put punctuation at the end of a sentence inside quotation marks. Example: He watched “Jaws.”
> "it`s" means "it is" - "its" is possessive.
> A “novel” is fiction.
