ESSAY ASSIGNMENT SHEET HISTORY 337 Choose one of the questions below and write an essay of 8-10 pages. Make sure to use correct citations (Chicago Manual of Style citation method). Cite all ideas, whether quotes or paraphrases, you get from journals and books (do not use Internet resources). Materials derived from the UMUC library computer database for scholarly articles are not Internet resources, thus they are acceptable. You should use JSTOR and EbscoHost for most of your scholarly sources in addition to using primary sources from outside of class. Make sure to go to those databases first and then search. You must also use the Writing Guide (attached again here in Content Week 7) to assist in writing the essay by providing clear grammar/style rules in addition to proper footnote formatting. You are required to use it before you submit the paper. Be well acquainted with the Writing Guide as I will be using it to determine in large part your grade for the paper. We will also receive assistance from the Effective Writing Center Fellows for the course. This paper requires the use of a minimum of ten outside (of class) scholarly sources, including 3 primary sources, to be eligible for a grade of A and seven outside (of class) sources, including 2 primary sources, to be eligible for a grade of C. Once again, I will not accept any essays with Internet sources, so no websites unless you get my prior approval. Do not use encyclopedias or dictionaries as sources. As part of this assignment, you will be submitting what question you are answering and what is your thesis in Week 5. The paper is due no later than 6:00 pm, EST on Saturday, 3 August 2019. I will not accept a late essay except for extenuating circumstances (as I determine them). Submit the final research essay to the Assignment folder. Your paper must have a clear thesis (answer to the question) and a clear method (how you are answering the question) in the last sentence of the introduction. It must utilize analysis based on scholarly evidence to prove the thesis. The paper must be typed, in Word (no PDFs or other file types), and double-spaced with one-inch margins. Do not use more than three quotes and none should be longer than three lines. Follow this rule closely. I will base your grade on the paper’s clarity (an explicit thesis and method are critical), logic, effectiveness of argumentation, grammar/style/correct citation format (assimilate the Writing Guide), the use of at least ten sources not from class in addition to class sources, the incorporation of primary sources, and use of evidence to support your claims. NOTE: IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE WRITING GUIDE AS CORRECT FORMATTING OF YOUR WORK IMPROVES YOUR PAPER. 1. What were the primary causes of the Holocaust? Select three primary causes and analyze how they interconnected in leading to the atrocities not just of the Nazis, the SS, and German army (Wehrmacht), but all the perpetrators/collaborators.
