following critical elements must H u m a n i t i e s
Use milestone one (attached) as the starting point to complete an annotated bibliography according to the below information (also attached rubric)
Overview: For this assignment, due in Module Four, you will submit a thesis statement for your historiography paper and an annotated bibliography that summarizes 8 to 10 secondary sources on your topic. Your thesis statement should be one to two sentences long and reflect your preliminary conclusions about the secondary literature about your topic. Each secondary source must be an authoritative, scholarly book or article that provides a clear interpretation of your topic. Each entry in your bibliography should include an annotation of one to two paragraphs. The annotation will describe the secondary source’s thesis, argument, or interpretation and explain why the source is significant to a historiographical essay on your topic.
Instead of organizing the annotated bibliography by the author’s last name, as is the usual practice when using Chicago style, list the bibliographical entries and annotations in the order that you plan to analyze them in the final project. Your organization may be chronological or thematic. When you organize the bibliography this way, your instructor should have a good sense of how your paper will flow and can provide feedback on the larger project in addition to the thesis and annotated bibliography.
This milestone will form the basis for Critical Elements IIA through IIC in the final historiography project.
Because the length of annotations may vary from source to source, there is no minimum or maximum page count for this milestone, but it must be formatted according to Chicago style. Cite your sources with footnotes within the text of your paper and on the bibliography page.
Prompt: Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Historiographical Development A.
Provide a detailed thesis statement that analyzes the historiographical trends that are relevant to your topic. B. Discuss the major scholarly works that will be explored in this paper, and identify which historiographical trend each should be affiliated with. C. What interpretations, conclusions, or arguments did each author make about the topic?
