Identify and explain the content of one (1) secondary source and one (1) primary source from your bibliography. You must read and respond to at least one other student’s post. Remember that the goal of the discussion is to be helpful, provide a sounding board, and to learn from your classmates, so your response should help meet that goal.
The research proposal should include an overview of the topic, including a tentative thesis statement, review of other historians work on this topic, research questions, methodology, and an accounting of primary source materials to be used.
Bibliographies should be separated into sections of primary and secondary sources and must be formatted according to the guidelines of the Turabian Guide (Chapter 16). You will want to begin to build on your research from HIST 294 this week in order to prepare your project bibliography that lists the primary and secondary sources you will use in the senior thesis. In Week 1, craft a revised Bibliography, adding primary and secondary sources and revaluating the sources you located for your Annotated Bibliography in HIST 294. You should add a minimum of two (2) additional quality academic books or articles and two (2) additional primary sources directly tied to the topic for this week's submission.
Bibliographies are due on Sunday 11:59 PM CT
