The purpose of this project is to:
Reinforce competency in Information Literacy.
Introduce the process of identifying, locating, and evaluating sources for research in history.
Acquaint students with search tools and databases used for research in history.
Introduce the Turabian style for source citation.
Improve writing skills by providing students with an opportunity to respond to instructor feedback with revisions.
The project will be completed in three separate assignments (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3) which will build upon one another. These three assignments or parts will guide the student through the initial stages of research used for a college-level history research paper without actually writing the paper.
Each assignment will be submitted and graded separately. Students may not submit Part 2 or Part 3 until after they have submitted and received instructor feedback to the preceding part(s).
Part 1: Develop a research question on a focused topic and identify sources. Write an explanation of the process of locating sources.
Due no later than 11:59 p.m. on Monday of Module/Week 2.
Part 2: Revise the research question and source list based on instructor feedback. Compile a properly formatted bibliography. Write an explanation of the process of revision, evaluating sources, and formatting.
Due no later than 11:59 p.m. on Monday of Module/Week 5.
Part 3: Revise the bibliography based on instructor feedback. Write an evaluation of three sources and a concluding reflection on the research process.
