In addition to Strayer’s secondary text, you are required to use one primary source (“document”) from each chapter (chapters 16-23), that is, altogether eight primary sources (at least FOUR written primary sources) from eight chapters. At the end of the essay, you are required to make a “bibliography,” or a list all the sources you used arranged alphabetically by the names of the authors and the titles of the sources.
Format of Citation:
For the sources of your information, you MUST indicate the author’s names, the page numbers, and/or the titles of the sources by putting them in parentheses. If it is Staryer’s text, you write (Strayer, 747). If it is a primary source from Strayer’s book, you list the author’s name, the title of his or her source in quotation marks, and then Stayer’s name and page number(s): (Toyohara Chikanobu, “Illustration of Singing by the Plum Garden,” in Strayer, ???).
Length and Font requirements:
3-4 pages (EXCLUDING title page and bibliography), 12-point type (“Times New Roman” only), double space. You must have a title page and bibliography.
The clarity and quality of your point/argument (for example, you can say “The modern world has been closely or tightly connected”) , the number of sources you use, the degree you engage with the sources, the completeness of coverage, the quality of analysis, organization and writing (clarity, grammar, spelling, etc.), and length will be considered in grading your essay.
How to write a good essay?
First of all,
• Have a title page!
• Give a title to your paper (“The Connection of the Modern World”)!
• Insert page numbers to your paper (top or bottom, center or side)!
• 1) have an Argument/point/thesis:
• Whatever we write (and say),
• We must have a point;
• Never be pointless!
• In other word, never write a narrative;
• Never just pile up facts or information.
• It can be: “The modern world has been closely or tightly connected.”
• Use facts or evidence (sources) to support your argument or point.
• 2) Be engaging, solid and informative:
• Engage with as many sources as possible;
• But not only quantity or length, but more importantly depth:
• Engage with them as deeply as possible.
• The content should convince your reader that you have drawn extensive and profoundly from your sources.
• 3) Organize well:
Divide your paper into sections, and have a heading for the section:
I. Introduction—Briefly state what you are going to do in your paper,
especially what your argument/point is;
II. Body of your essay—This section should provide evidence or facts in order to demonstrate the modern world has been connected; divide the section into different paragraphs.
III. Conclusion: The Significance of Environmental history
“In this paper, I have discussed/argued…”
• Make sure that you break your writing into paragraphs:
• Each paragraph for one idea and ideally with a topical sentence,
• Then another paragraph for another idea…
• 4) Document well:
• If you are asked to use parentheses for your information,
• then use them accordingly.
• All in all, we must provide the sources of our information to avoid plagiarism and to give credit to the authors.
• 5) Write well:
• Not everybody can write beautifully,
• But we all can try to write decent papers.
• The secret is to start early.
• Write drafts, and then go over it as many times as possible,
• Thus to avoid many unnecessary errors.
• Some common writing errors:
• a) Inconsistent tense: if you are discussing an event in the past,
• Then use the past tense consistently;
• But to cite the works of modern authors, use present tense:
• Strayer states/says/explains/argues/points out/challenges/concludes/complains…
• b) Note the differences: “its” (possessive) vs. “it’s” (=it is); “their” vs. “there”
• c) Avoid spelling errors.
