Transcript

  • 1. What is a Historical Thesis? Lisa M Lane
  • 2.
    • A historical thesis is kind of like a thesis for an English paper. It is a statement or sentence that you need to prove. You prove a thesis by presenting a brief argument and some evidence.
  • 3.
    • That evidence comes from the resources we have for this class.
  • 4.
    • In this class, we will be developing historical theses for both tests and weekly homework. Each homework will be a mini-essay, with a thesis and evidence, using key terms from your textbook and document titles from your workbook.
  • 5.
    • There is no research paper, because you are constructing smaller papers every week, and collecting them into your portfolio.

  • 6.
    • After you create your homework, you post your thesis on the class wiki. This needs to happen before you come to class, so we can see all the theses during class.
  • 7.
    • Please don’t worry about how “good” your thesis is at first. The thesis you post on the wiki is subject to review, not grading. Grading happens later, with the whole portfolio.

    • By the end of the class, writing a thesis will be quick and easy, which will help you in all your classes, not just this one. At the same time, you'll gain understanding of historical patterns over time, because you'll be creating your own historical narrative as you work in this class. So let's get started!
