  • 1. Research Paper Tips #1 World History 9 St. Anne’s-BelfieldMonday, February 4, 13
  • 2. Of [two rulers], who was the more effective leader? ✤ To mount an thoughtful, analytical argument on the relative “effectiveness” of two leaders, you must compare “apples to apples.”Monday, February 4, 13
  • 3. Choosing Leaders ✤ YOU MUST HAVE A BASIS FOR COMPARISON! ✤ Choose two leaders who share points of comparison (researchable evidence exists for BOTH RULERS). This will make your assessment more persuasive and the argument more effective. ✤ Compare “apples to apples” ✤ DO NOT choose two leaders who were polar oppositesMonday, February 4, 13
  • 4. Apples to Apples ✤ ex. effectiveness of teachers- ✤ COMPARE LORET TO KLAUS RATHER THAN LORET TO SWAIN (both teach 9th grade history) ✤ ex. COMPARE OBAMA TO LINCOLN, NOT TO CLINTON (both presided over periods of war)Monday, February 4, 13
  • 5. Areas of Comparison ✤ Areas of effectiveness should be chosen through research ✤ Choose areas common to both leaders ex. Choose FOREIGN POLICY not military experience if comparing Obama and Washington (both engaged in foreign policy, only Washington had military leadership experience)Monday, February 4, 13
