For this activity, topics should address content
covered in Chapters 9-15 in the textbook.
-It is expected that, at
a minimum, you are reading the assigned textbook chapters.
-You are encouraged to
read collateral historical writings on topics covered in the textbook.
This activity will consist of 7 separate journal
entries; you will have a total of 15 entries by the end of the course.
Each separate entry should:
-contain a minimum of 150
-consist of a summary,
paraphrase, and synthesis of material you are reading/studying in this course.
-be written in your own words – do not quote the work of others
-discuss the subject
matter that you are studying – do not simply agree/disagree.
-provide ample examples from the textbook.
Your study involves, first and foremost,
learning the nation’s past; doing so requires a review of previously published
studies, so you are encouraged to conduct research using outside resources, but
be sure to draft your journal entries in your own words.
-Direct quotations should
not be used; citations are not necessary.
-Do not copy/paste
information from any source.
