      • the topic’s relationship to the theme “Innovation in History: Impact and Change.”
        • why is this topic an innovation?
        • what about this topic makes it innovative?
        • how was this person acting in an innovative way?
      • an explanation on why the topic is significant in history.

        • why is it important?
      • an argument that can be supported with evidence.

    • Have students supported their claims with evidence?
    • What is the theme?

  • 6. The Annotated Bibliography
    • By the Rules:
    • Primary and secondary sources separated
    • MLA or Turabian/Chicago Style citations
    • Annotations that explain:
      • how the source was used.
      • how the source helped in student understanding.
      • why it is listed as primary if it is a “gray area” source.
  • 7. The Annotated Bibliography
    • Primary vs. Secondary Sources
    • Primary: Sources that are created during, or a product of, the time period being researched. They are often “raw” materials that require students to draw their own conclusions. Such sources include :
      • Witnesses
      • Diaries
      • Letters
      • Documents
      • Newspaper Articles
    • Secondary: Sources created through research that include an author’s own analysis and interpretation.
  • 8. The Annotated Bibliography
    • Things to look for:
    • Are the primary sources really primary?
    • Are the listed sources providing students with a wide spectrum of information?
    • How reliable do the materials appear?
      • www.worldofquotes.com vs. www.nara.gov
    • Has the student located a reasonable number of sources based on their topic ?
  • 9. Judging Criteria: Relation to Theme Innovation in History: Impact and Change
  • 10. Judging Criteria: Clarity of Presentation (Paper Sample)
