CHECK YOUR TOPIC WITH ME The argument is the subject/focus of your paper See the research paper outline online DO NOT DO A COMPARE AND CONTRAST PAPER DON’T COMPARE TO THE FUTURE/PRESENT This is an evidence based paper—avoid conjecture and hypotheticals Don’t give imaginary or made up situations, don’t base your paper on what if scenarios or what could have happened—base on what DID happen and why it matters Make sure you are staying within our course time frame THIS course goes from ~1600-1865—DO NOT GO BEYOND MAKE SURE IT IS AN AMERICAN HISTORY That means that your Argument needs to be situated within these years The articles/books you use can obviously be from outside this time frame Make sure you are arguing about something within this time frame DO NOT THROW FORWARD TO THE PRESENT Avoid presentism Do NOT TALK ABOUT THE PRESENT AT ALL
