A word about the Case Studies: For each response, answer the question posed by incorporating quotes from the relevant primary source readings. Reading first-hand accounts by the people who lived the history we are studying completes the image, giving you insight impossible to gain otherwise.
Also, keep in mind this checklist for your primary source case studies.
- Use direct quotes!
- Use historical vocabulary
- Use info from other sources, but do not forget to use direct quotes from the primary sources.
- Include a works cited page.
- Use MLA style.
- Spelling, punctuation, and word choice DO matter. Avoid being vague or superficial.
- Use the correct names for historical figures. Some go by one name only; Napoleon, for example. Monarchs are referred to by their “state” name; for example, Queen Victoria, King George III, etc. Ordinary people are referred to by their first and last name in the first reference; after this initial reference, refer to historical figures by their last name, not their first name.
