Factors that Contributed to the
Panic of 1893

The
United States of America has experienced, endured, and overcome
numerous instances of threats to its existence since time immemorial.

  • The
    core assignment of this course is a documented research paper
    (1500-2000 words in length = approx. 6 – 8 pages double spaced, 12-point
    font).

    • The essay should support a thesis statement with information gained from research or investigation.
    • The
      paper will not be just a report presenting information, but will be an
      essay that carefully examines and presents your own historical
      interpretation of the topic you have chosen and your interpretation of
      the information you have gathered.
    • The paper may include
      consideration of problems and solutions, define key terms, or refute
      arguments against your thesis statement.

    It will be important to choose a topic of interest to you.

    • Approach this assignment with an open and skeptical mind, then form an opinion based on what you have discovered.
    • You
      must suspend belief while you are investigating and let the discoveries
      shape your opinion. (This is a thesis-finding approach.)
    • Once you have found your thesis, write the paper to support it.

    You will use some of the following critical thinking skills in this process:

    1. Choosing an appropriate topic, limiting the topic
    2. Gathering information, summarizing sources
    3. Analyzing and evaluating sources
    4. Defining key terms
    5. Synthesizing information, comparing and contrasting sources
    6. Testing a thesis, making an historical argument, using refutation
    7. Amassing support for a position
    8. Documenting sources

    Because
    this may be a longer essay than you have written before and a complex
    process is involved, it is recommended that you complete this paper
    using the following steps:

    1. Choose a topic related to U.S. History
      after 1877 (Chapters 16-28) that you would truly like to explore and
      that you are willing to spend some time on. Your chosen topic should be
      focused. Pose a question that you really want to answer. You may want to
      begin with more than one topic in mind.
    2. Do some preliminary
      reading on the topic(s). You may begin with the textbook, then further
      explore the information available. Refine your topic. Summarize your
      topic, your interest in the topic, the questions you want to answer, and
      a hypothesis you want to test.
    3. Gather information from a variety of sources. Use a minimum of four sources for your paper, and at least one must be a primary source.
      • Examples of primary sources are ones that are used in our discussion forums 2 – 8.
      • They are sources that are contemporary to the times under investigation.
      • An
        example of a secondary source is our textbook, though the textbook also
        contains excerpts of primary sources, which you may use as a source in
        your essay.
    4. Outline the results of your research and then plan for your essay (note you are not required to submit the outline).
    5. Write the final draft and be sure to include a Works Cited List; be sure to use the correct MLA documentation style.
