This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeOrganizationHow the essay is structured overall to develop the argument in a complete and logical manner, as well as, more locally, how paragraphs and ideas proceed from one to the next
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeAnalysis/InterpretationThis is an oversimplification, but consider the difference between explanation and description. UCLA’s Public History Initiative has a thoughtful discussion.
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeArgument and Thesis StatementArgument and thesis are not exactly the same thing, but are closely related. In your thesis statement, you state your argument about a given topic, and then, often in another sentence, you indicate how you will prove (support) your argument.
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeUse of EvidenceYour thesis needs to be grounded in primary materials, evidence from the time, community, person, etc.
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeQuality of EvidenceYou should draw on both primary and secondary materials, appropriately selected for an academic essay and relevant to the topic.
This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Documentation. Please use Chicago Style notes & bib for your citations. If your in-text citations (footnotes preferred, endnotes acceptable) are complete, you don’t need to provide me with a separate works cited section at the end of your essay. Some texts may not be standard in their publication format, in which case you can check in with me and/or the TA. Lectures can be cited “Instructor, Title of the Lecture, Course Number.” The Smits textbook can be informally cited with the author’s name, title, and “no other publication information available.”
