HIST 1101 Final Essay
Create a lesson plan for how to teach an historical idea.
Step 1. Using five primary sources from our textbook, create a lesson plan for how to teach a specific idea or concept in history.
Step 2. Once you’ve selected five sources and a theme, decide on a learning outcome (sometimes called a learning goal), that you want students to achieve. A learning outcome is the demonstration of learning. For example, students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the differences between women’s property rights in three different regions. A good learning outcome is specific, and measurable. Avoid outcomes that can’t be measured, such as “Students will learn to appreciate world geography.” How would someone measure if students appreciate something? Start with this statement: I want students to learn . . . x.
Step 3. Once you have a learning outcome (the concept or content you want students to learn) write the following three sections to help a typical college student achieve your outcome.
The background: What information does your reader need to begin to understand the central question you’ve created for you theme? This may include introducing the sources, highlighting a historical issue, or simply asking a tough question that does not have an easy answer. Do not quote extensively from your text, but you will need to draw in information from across the text.
How to work with your sources: Here you lay out how you suggest your readers should approach the sources. You may point out some obvious problems with using certain types of sources, or suggest potentially useful ways of compare and contrasting sources. This section is about how to work with sources and what the sources are.
Questions to Consider: What questions will help the reader better understand the sources? Your questions should move the reader towards your learning outcome.
? 12 point font, Times New Roman
? Sources should cover three continents from at least three different chapters.
? 1 inch margins.
? Citations for all quotations (which should be a sentence or less each) using endnotes or footnotes. For how to insert footnotes, see here. For the appropriate format of citations, see here .
? Paragraph format (no bullets or lists).
? 1000 words maximum (no exceeding the maximum without grade penalty)
? I understand that using someone else’s words or ideas without citation and quotations is plagiarism and will result in a 0 on this midterm.
What it looks like:
Section I: My learning goal/outcome, stated in a single sentence. Section II: Citation of five sources, including their names and page numbers. Section III: Background Section IV: Working with your sources Section V: Questions
Example: (Out of our time limit, but otherwise appropriate)
Section I: Students will learn to distinguish between different types of inheritance systems in the 19th century and how those inheritance systems influenced property rights among women in three societies. Section II: Citations for a poem, a letter, a will, a picture, and a tax record. Section III: To understand inheritance systems, consider the following terminology (examples). Now that you’re familiar with the terminology, consider the historical societies in which these inheritance systems existed (examples a, b, and c). Section IV. When working with poetry, remember poems represent a version of the author’s reality. When working with letters, what is included and what is excluded matters. (Further advice to your student on how to work with particular sources). Section V: When comparing source 1 and 2, how do the author’s assumptions about women’s roles in the family influence their description of inheritance? What does the picture tell us about second sons’ right to inherit when compared with daughters?
