Do not use headers or ‘quotes’ from the reading assignment.

Do not use ‘I’, ‘me’, ‘my’ in writing summaries.

Do not cut and paste or copy any of the text in the reading assignment and then change it because TURNITIN will read it as copying and not as original.

TURNITIN SIMILARITY SCORE SHOULD BE 0% – if you are summarizing in your own words…

Take notes in your own words and then summarize.

Summaries that are too close to the original text will receive little or no credit.

OTHER ANSWER SOURCES ARE NOT ACCEPTED.

(It is important to see what you think about what you have read, and viewed. You must be original!)

You must attach the file as a WORD document: if you do not have WORD you can get an online version through BC or download OpenOffice and save the document in WORD format. Check for the DUE date for each assignment. To post: Follow the directions and then go to “Submit Files” then “Add a File”, “Upload” then “Add” then, “Submit”.

How to check your turnitin % score:
When you submit your writing assignments you will see your Turnitin % score after the paper has been submitted; you can click on it to review what is similar. If you need to make changes to your assignment you can but would have to submit a new file with the changes (the system allows for more than one submission as long as it is submitted before the deadline / the most current submission is graded). If you are submitting the assignment too close to the deadline there is no time to check your score and make changes; it’s important to work ahead so if needed you have time to make changes. The Writing Assignment is open for 9 days (check the course schedule for dates and times).

 TOPIC: Origins Of The Persian War
By now you should have your research nearly completed.  Post an outline of your paper, your thesis statement, and your final bibliography at this time.  Remember you are striving for more than a report, you want to prove your thesis with your research. Responses to other students here are not required (as they are in the general weekly forums). The deadline for this research paper update is Sunday 11:59 PM Eastern time.
In formulating a thesis statement one good way to do so is to ask yourself “So what?”  and “Why is this important to history?” “Why do we care about the event/person/place/custom?”
From these questions generate a list of answers and try to incorporate them into the larger scheme of history as a whole.
A thesis should be more than “Sparta had a great military.”  Instead create an argument.  “If not for the social controls placed on Spartan society by Lycurgus Sparta’s military would not have been as strong.”  Next, fashion a thesis that takes a stand on the question presented.  For the rest of your paper you will use your research to defend and prove this statement by providing facts, examples and analysis of the primary sources and examples.
An outline should be formatted:
Essay Outline Sample [Template]

  1. Introduction
    1. Background, set the scene, explain why what you are researching is important.
    2. State question or questions to be addressed by paper.
    3. State and bold the thesis.
    4. First Point, Assertion, Explanation

    8. Address opposing viewpoints if any.

    1. Tell the reader how your evidence shows how your thesis is correct. Reemphasize your thesis in a fresh way, showing how your have achieved your purpose. This is not the place to introduce new evidence.

Make sure you also post your bibliography as it stand at Week 5.  This bibliography should include three primary and six secondary sources, all of which should be quality academic sources. Please separate primary and secondary sources into two lists in bibliography.
