Hello, I have an history essay that requires to read document and answer:
Examine all of the assigned chapters and documents, as well as the Power Point(s) in the folder. It may be helpful to consider the following:
- What do these documents tell us about the thoughts and feelings of slaves?
- What do they tell us about the slave trade?
- What do they tell us about the different experiences of slaves at different places and in different moments?
- What documents do the filmmakers rely on to tell their story?
- How did the practice of slavery change over time, and within different colonies?
- [NOTE: Remember that even under the best circumstances, slavery was still the complete denial of freedom and human rights.]
- What do the sources “oice of freedom” reveal about the period we are studying? What insight does each document provide? In other words, how does it relate to the textbook readings “Give me liberty”? The Power Points? Try to place the different sources “in conversation” with each other to understand a time period
- You need to rely less on summary and demonstrate more of your own analysis.You don’t have to use the “one paragraph per source” structure. You might try to look for common themes and connections (or contradictions) between the readings. Synthesize this evidence to support your argument.
CItation: Cite by the article’s name+pp. For example:
When citing the textbook, list the title in italics and page number(s): Ex) (Give Me Liberty, pp. 468-469)
When citing a primary source in “Voice of freedom”, list the first two or three words of the title and page number(s), if available: Ex) (“American Soldiers in the Philippines,” p. 5)
Ex) (Hawaii’s Last Queen)
When citing a Power Point, list “Power Point” and topic: Ex) (Power Point, Reconstruction and Jim Crow)
Length: 2 pages double space
I don’t need to use too many academic words.
