Please choose any of the essay titles and do this task.
The purpose of this exercise is (a) to get you thinking critically about the way you conduct research; (b) to familiarise you with the range of research tools; and (c) to test your ability to present your bibliographical citations in a professional manner as a list of ‘Works Cited’, appended to your essay.
Instructions:
Choose one of the questions from the list of essay titles. This does NOT have to be the question you will actually write your essay about.
Having chosen your question, reflect on the issues it raises and identify your primary sources. Before you start researching a topic, you must have identified a starting point. Simply putting the title of a book or poem into Google is not research. It is guesswork. Work out what might be the key words or ideas and use these to guide your initial research. Your aim should be to begin researching with a sketch of your argument. For the purposes of this exercise that can be a very rough sketch indeed.
Then proceed to the following:
1. Write up a list of 8 items that you think will help you (a) provide contextual information necessary for your introduction and exposition and (b) develop your argument. Use at least 3 different types of references (e.g. book, journal article, newspaper article, chapter in edited book, dictionary). If you find a website make sure it is an academic one; assess its authority before you use it. The bibliographical references must be in accordance with the recommended style guide as appropriate to each type of item.
2. Your list overall should reflect an awareness of the politics of referencing, and how they connote an understanding of (a) what identities, experiences, and perspectives are represented, and (b) whose contributions to knowledge are valid or important.
3. Write a brief description (200 words max) of the research process you used to identify the items. You should include information about a) which search tools you used (e.g. suggested readings from the module, library catalogue, google scholar) b) which key words you used and c) how you narrowed your search down.
4. Write a brief justification (300 words max) for the choice of the items included in the list. This can be a brief note on each item, or a paragraph justifying the selection overall.
Please use this guide for how to make the bibliography, it is attached.

Should run consecutively throughout the essay.

LAYOUT OF ASSESSED WORK
▪ All work will normally be word-processed.
▪ The main text should be double-spaced; the footnotes and bibliography should be single-spaced.
▪ Font size for text should be 12pt; for footnotes 10pt. Times New Roman “justified” text layout
is ideal.
▪ 1inch margins.
▪ The title page should record the essay question, panther id, class code and title, and the date.
▪ The bibliography should begin on a separate page at the end of the essay.
▪ Use footnotes rather than endnotes.
▪ Footnote markers should be numerical and superscript (e.g. …as Smith had argued.1); footnotes
should run consecutively throughout the essay.
▪ All pages, including the title page and bibliography, should be numbered consecutively.
▪ A running header containing the essay question only (abbreviated if practical) is useful, but not
essential.
▪ Use quotation marks and correct footnote citations with page numbers to protect yourself from
being accused of plagiarism
▪ Quotations of three lines or fewer should run on in the text and be enclosed in quotation marks.
Quotations of more than three lines should be inset and single-spaced, without quotation
marks.
▪ Matter inserted into a quotation to clarify a point should be enclosed in square brackets, e.g. ‘he
[Lord George Sackville] left the House amid loud cheers.’
▪ Word limit: Word limits include footnotes and appendices, if any, but not the bibliography.
▪ Review for errors of spelling and grammar—this is a formal written report!
• Use MS Word’s spelling and grammar check functions.
• Before submission on Canvas, I highly recommend that you read your work out loud (or
have someone read it to you) in order to catch any typographical or grammatical errors.
▪ Submit the paper online using the appropriate Turnitin link on Canvas by the deadline.
BIBLIOGRAPHY:

▪ The bibliography should list all material which has informed the content of the essay.
▪ All works which appear in the footnotes will also be listed in the bibliography, but the
bibliography may also contain additional works which do not appear in the footnotes.
▪ Additional books which have not directly influenced the essay must not be included in the
bibliography; in other words, do not ‘pad’ your bibliography.
▪ The bibliography should be divided into manuscript, printed primary, and secondary sources.
Some undergraduate essays will contain only one section for secondary sources.
▪ Internet addresses in the bibliography can be given under the author’s name if appropriate.
Otherwise, list them under a subheading of ‘Internet sources’.
▪ In all sections the works should be listed alphabetically by author. Works by the same author
should be listed alphabetically by title under his/her name.
Essays require that you interpret primary source evidence in historical context, drawing from the
assigned course readings. All of your papers must:
▪ closely analyze and describe primary sources using specifics and details;
▪ use scholarly secondary source texts for evidence about the historical context;
▪ select evidence to prove a thesis;
▪ draw conclusions beyond those that are immediately obvious from the evidence;
▪ write a paper that has a clear thesis, evidence organized into logical paragraphs, and a
conclusion;
▪ use correctly formatted footnote citations.
Essays should also:
▪ Consider different perspectives on a problem or controversy related to Modern British
History and attempt to reach a resolution about it. (Global Engagement)
▪ Appreciate that British history cannot be understood in isolation from people and events
from around the world. (Global Awareness)
▪ Recognize that history is comprised of multiple stories, representing diverse experiences
and perspectives (Global Perspective)
▪ Construct an evidence-based argument that integrates multiple perspectives on an issue in
Modern British History. (Global Perspective)
