You will write one paper in this course dedicated to examining and integrating several primary sources into an organized and coherent essay. How well you interpret and integrate the information from the primary sources is part of how I will be evaluating your submissions. You have several options to choose from in order to fulfill this requirement. The history of the Black Death is one of them.
Why did the Black Death occur? How did different people react to the Black Death? What were the social, economic, cultural, and political effects of the Black Death? Does the Black Death have any lessons for 21st-century societies?
Do not start by Googling the topic. First read your textbook on the Black Death, especially the chapter on the “revenge of nature.” Then, carefully read all of the following primary source documents for evidence to answer the above questions. (Many students find it useful to print out the documents so that they can highlight text and write in the margins for later use.) Then, write an outline of your essay with an introduction, thesis, support, and conclusion regarding the origins, development, and effects of the Black Death. Once you have an idea of what each paragraph is going to say, go back and rewrite your introduction to strengthen your thesis. Once that is done, you are ready to write the entire paper. Think about what you want to say in the conclusion; it should be more than just a restatement of your introduction. Be sure to make explicit use of the primary sources in supporting your argument, whether by paraphrases or direct quotations. Although useful for providing context for the primary source, the introductory material for each document (the writing in italics) is not considered a primary source.
According to the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th ed.), section 5.6.2.c. (“A Work on the Web Cited with Print Publication Data,”) you would include the print publication data, and then in addition to that information, you would record, in the place of the concluding word Print, the following information in order:
1.Title of the database or Web site (italicized).
2.Medium of publication consulted (Web)
3.Date of access (day, month, and year).
So the citation would be (Buddha, point 4).
The reference would be
Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama. “Sermon at Benares.” Documents in World History. Ed. Peter N. Stearns, Stephen S. Gosch, and Erwin P. Grieshaber. New York: Longman, 2000. Chris Jackson’s
History. Web. 18 April 2013.
