Section Information for Spring 2024
This research and writing intensive course for History majors uses the broad topic of youth cultures to teach students the fundamentals of historical methodology. The goal is to lay a foundation in research, analytical, and writing skills that History majors can draw on as they take their upper-level coursework and eventually the capstone course, History 499. Students will learn how to develop research questions, find and analyze both primary and secondary sources, organize their analyses into arguments that are supported by evidence, and present those arguments effectively in both written and oral forms. Students will also learn to follow ethical principles, avoiding plagiarism and acknowledging intellectual debts through proper citations written in the disciplinary-standard "Chicago" style.
