ASSIGNMENT - FIRST HISTORIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY (HE1)

TOPIC -- Drawn from Chapters 1 through 6 of Breisach's Historiography: Ancient, Medieval, and Modern, and supplemented by scholarly materials available through the APUS Online Library or elsewhere, write your own interpretative account of the evolution of historiography in either Greek or Roman civilization. In your summary, indicate the contributions of your selection (be it Greek or Roman) to early historical scholarship. You may focus on one historian or a group of historians from either Greece or Rome.

Many students often do little more than take notes from Breisach and then write things up in their own words. This would be passable but it is not what I am looking for. It is for this reason that you must also do a bit of outside research on the topic. Use Breisach, but use other sources as well. You should also trust yourself - use what you know to discuss something with which you may not be completely familiar.

SOURCES -- You will find lengthy passages from: The Ancient History Sourcebook

(http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/ancient/asbook.html) and the Internet Classics Archive (http://classics.mit.edu/)

The essays must target 1250 (minimum) - 1500 (maximum) words, and should begin with a clear and easily identifiable thesis statement and include a minimum of five primary and secondary sources. All essays must have a suitable title. Footnotes are required. All sources, as well as the bibliography, must conform to Turabian'sA Manual for Writers.

The essay you submit should be carefully scrutinized for errors. I tire quickly with essays that use "their" instead of "there" or "where" instead of "were." Proofread, and then proofread some more.NOTE: In general, all-purpose internet sources cannot be used for citation purposes.

Exceptions are the scholarly websites and documents available through the APUS Online Library, or other academic websites. While indeed useful for a quick reference, Wikipedia is not considered a valid academic source. [The HE is worth 15% of your final grade.]
