Here is the outline my teacher gave me, please read through it. The topic I’ve chosen is Benjamin Franklin, and sources are until the American Civil War. I’ve submitted a primary source, here is what I’ve chosen: https://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/docume...

If you could find secondary sources entertaining the topic I’ve chosen, that’d be best. If not possible, please make sure with me on another primary source, thank you!!*

STEP 1 —After you choose a topic, find a SECONDARY SOURCE. It should be a scholarly, academic book or journal article. You most likely will find this through our Grossmont Library, or you can also use SDSU’s library. (Books are delivered to Grossmont if you order one.) Many sources in the library are ebooks or are journal articles you can get as a PDF through one of the databases in the library. OR, you may also use a scholarly, reliablewebsite created by scholars about your topic; you can also check with me if you find a scholarly documentary on your topic. (history.com, Wikipedia, and many other human interest websites are not scholarly, academic sites and are not reliable)

To cite Chicago style, this website helps: http://www.citationmachine.net/chicago/ (Links to an external site.) Links to an external site.

Secondary Source Citation Examples, Chicago Style:

Ulrich, Laurel Thatcher. Good Wives: Image and Reality in the Lives of Women in the Northern New England, 1650-1750(New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1982).

Baker, Paula. “The Domestication of American Politics.” American Historical Review89 (June 1984): 620-49

STEP 2 View the assigned readings/lecture/videos for the week that your topic fits into. ( Example:if the topic is Charlotte Forten and anti-slavery, then you will choose the week about slavery.)

STEP 3 Find one PRIMARY SOURCE from the internet or a book about your topic. Or, if your source is longer - like a novel from the 1850s, then choose two-three chapters that contain details that can answer the following assignment questions about the book, which is a primary source. For example: Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabinwas published in 1852, and it is a primary source for 1852. if your topic is slavery or anti-slavery, find a speech, letter, or newspaper article about slavery during the time when the U.S. had slavery. These things can be found online: clue: google your topic and “primary source” or “primary document.” Example: slavery United States primary source. Or U.S. slavery primary document.

PRIMARY SOURCE Citation Examples, Chicago Style :

Mather, Increase. “Wo to Drunkards.” Sermon. IN Mark E. Lender and James Kirby Martin, Drinking in America: A History(New York, 1982).

"Letter from William Franklin." Letter to Benjamin Franklin. September 7, 1765. Burlington, Vermont.

STEP 4 —Find one moreSECONDARY Source.

  • It should be a scholarly, academic book or journal article.
  • OR, you may also use a scholarly, reliablewebsite created by scholars about your topic;
  • OR you can also check with me if you find a scholarly documentary on your topic.
  • history.com, Wikipedia, and many other human interest websites are not scholarly, academic sites and are not reliable
  • No dictionaries or encyclopedias. No children or young adult sources.

You may use more sources if you want.

STEP 5 TYPE answers to the following questions. Your full length paper should be no shorter than 5 pages to 6.5 pages double spaced(before the citations page) with a font no larger than 12 and with margins no wider than one inch.

  • Use short quotes.
  • Give details such as names, dates, relevant explanations, etc.
  • Use abbreviated citations at the end of sentences (Hutchinson 3)(Foner text 231) like so.

Just type the number and then your answers to these questions.

This is NOT an essay paper with an introduction, body and conclusion.

Just type the number and your answer:

  1. WHAT IS the PRIMARY SOURCE?

WHAT YEAR was it made?

WHO was the person(s) who made it?

WHAT is the full citation (Chicago/Turabian style) of the source (author, title, publisher, year), as well as where you found the source (e.g., a book citation or Title of a webpage and URL if applicable). ( total of a few lines)

2. What FACTS ABOUT THE AUTHOR(s) of the source help you to understand the purpose of the document? Look this up in one of your secondary sources and your textbook. Provide abbreviated citations at the end of sentences where appropriate. (Blake 132) like so – author and page number. If your sources don’t tell you about the author, then do a little additional research to learn. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE CREATOR OF THE SOURCE– Example: if it is a newspaper article without an author about the Boston Tea Party, then use this question to talk about the newspaper itself. (about ¾ to 1 page)

3.What FACTS ABOUT THE TOPIC did you learn in your SECONDARY sources that help you to understand the meaning and significance of your PRIMARY source? ( about 1 page)

4. What, exactly, was the PURPOSE of your primary source? In other words, whydid someone write it or create it, and what did the person hope to accomplishwith it? Use BOTH your primary source AND your secondary sources ABOUT THE TOPIC to help you answer this, along with your textbook. (about ½ page)

5.Summarize the main points in the primary source: What are all the major, specific,DETAILS in the source which the author used to support his/her purpose? (i.e., what are all the specific details that help you understand the author’s purpose, or what details made the author successful in achieving his/her purpose?) (about 1-1/2 pages)

6.Use your secondary sources and course material: What event(s) or arguments related to your topicwere important at the time just before, during, or after your source was made? In other words, how does your source and your topic fit into the events and arguments of that time in U.S. history? How does your document help you to understand the events or arguments? Example:If your topic is the Boston Tea Party, you might discuss arguments about the taxes by Great Britain on the colonists ( about 1-1/2 pages)

7. Who had an alternate point of view of the relevant issue at that time? Why—what was the perspective of that different person or group? Use short quotes or details from your module materials and secondary sources . Example:If writing about the Boston Tea Party, you might discuss arguments about the colonists having representation in the British Parliament. ( about 1 page)

Give full citations of all your sources.

Reminders:

  • Use information from your reading assignment on the topic
  • No long quotes--a sentence or fragment of a sentence only
  • Always use quotations marks when copying directly from a source. Mostly, use your own words.
