Historical Topic Analysis Assignment Instructions

Overview

The purpose of the Historical Topic Analysis Assignment is to evaluate historical events, topics, and trends and their related causes and effects, especially in the field of education. The topic will also be addressed from a Biblical worldview perspective integrating current course materials and peer-reviewed journal articles. Candidates are encouraged to explore from a historical perspective a topic they anticipate might relate to their future capstone or dissertation project. Candidates research and conduct the analysis. They demonstrate knowledge of educational ideas of the past, consider the relevance of the topic, analyze the topic in light of their own educational beliefs, and critically analyze related actions and beliefs.

Instructions

This paper is based on the topic, guiding question, and preliminary thesis statement you submitted in previous assignments and should be in APA format (see the APA Format Quick Guide).

Length: This paper is to be at least 1,300 words in length from the introductory paragraph to the conclusion. This does not count the title page, abstract, or reference pages.

Citations and References: Cite at least five sources throughout the paper and list them on the reference page. Of the five sources, one of them is required to be the course textbook. You may incorporate articles from your Annotated Bibliography Assignment and other course assignments as appropriate. Other sources may include course videos, academic journal articles, books, and textbooks from other courses.

Structure: You have a great deal of latitude in how the paper is structured, but it should follow a logical progression of thought and the guidelines below. See the Historical Topic Analysis Grading Rubric for required elements.

  1. Title Page
  • Pagination: In APA, all pages are numbered. The title page should be page 1.
  • Title: The title should not be the name of the assignment (i.e., Historical Topic Analysis). It should be a phrase drawn from the thesis statement in the introductory paragraph. It should provide the reader a hint of the topic and the main idea supported throughout the paper and may be phrased in a clever, unique fashion. The first letter of all words should be capitalized except for articles (e.g. aanthe), conjunctions (e.g., andbut), and short prepositions (e.g., ofabout), unless they appear as the first word, which is always capitalized. Center and boldface your title and position it near the middle of the page or slightly above the middle.
  • Other Information on Title Page: All other information on the title page should comply with current APA requirements.
  1. Abstract: The heading of the abstract should be centered and boldfaced.
  • Place the abstract at the top of a page by itself after the title page.
  • Do not indent the first line.
  • The abstract is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of the paper. It should present the main ideas and main conclusions/implications. Including the main ideas and conclusions in the abstract is much more important than a simple outline of the structure or headings.
  1. Introduction: Do not use the word “Introduction” as a heading for this section.
  • The purpose of the introductory paragraph is different from that of the abstract. Do not simply copy the abstract.
  • In this section, introduce your thesis statement that will be developed throughout the paper. It is the main idea you are presenting. Save other supporting ideas for the body of the manuscript. Do not overload the introductory paragraph with too many concepts that distract from the key point of the thesis statement.
  • It is best to place the thesis statement at the end of the introductory paragraph. It is typically one or two sentences that serve as a transition into the rest of the paper. Some writers choose to place it as the first sentence of the introduction. Either option is acceptable as long as the introduction is well written and has a logical progression of thought.
  1. Summary and Context: Centered in bold with all major words capitalized, enter the first Level 1 heading of your paper. (Level 2 headings are unnecessary for this short of a paper.) Use the words “Summary and Context.”
  • This brief section describes and/or summarizes the topic you have chosen so the reader understands the setting in which the topic developed. This is a succinct presentation of events or circumstances that may have influenced the topic.
  • Include transitions that build a logical progression from the thesis statement in the introductory paragraph into the topic and its historical context.
  1. Critical Analysis: This Level 1 heading should be formatted the same as the previous one. Use the words “Critical Analysis.” This section should reflect various perspectives about the topic, including a Biblical worldview lens.
  1. Conclusion: Use the same Level 1 formatting as you have done with your other headings above and enter the word “Conclusion” is centered, bold font. Although your conclusion should include concepts from the thesis statement in the introduction and should have some alignment with the title of the paper, you should not simply restate the thesis statement. Wrap up the paper by emphasizing your main idea and draw a clear conclusion. Typically, a good conclusion does not introduce new information. The conclusion is where you are to discuss implications about what you have already shared and relate ideas to current educational issues.
  1. References: Starting at the top of the next page after the end of the manuscript, center in bold font the heading “References.”
  • Double-space everything throughout your paper, including the reference page. Do not insert additional extra lines/spaces.
  • Using a hanging indent, which means that the first line of every reference is left-justified with all other lines of the reference indented.
  • Follow the format below for books. Only initials are used for the author’s first and middle names. See the APA manual for examples of multiple authors, editors, etc.

Authorlastname, A. B. (2019). Book title in italics with only the first word and proper nouns, like Christian, capitalized: If there is a subtitle, the first word is capitalized. Publisher.

  • Follow the format below for journal articles. Both the journal title and the volume number are italicized. There is no space between the volume and issue numbers. (Sometimes, the source provides no issue number. If that is the case, simply place a comma after the italicized volume number.) Page numbers are last without “p.” or “pg.” before them.

Authorlastname, A. B. (2019). Article title in regular font with only the first word and proper nouns, like European, capitalized: Subtitles may or may not be used. Journal Titles Capitalize All Major Words Except for the Articles, Conjunctions, and Short Prepositions, 15(2), 41-50.

  • Regarding APA format for citing the Bible, see Religious Work References on the APA website. The Bible should be in addition to other required references.

Miscellaneous Tips

First Person Pronouns: Per the APA manual, first-person pronouns are permitted. However, they should rarely be used and are intended only for conveying an incident about your life story (e.g., “I was born into poverty”) or explaining the actions you took as a researcher (e.g., “I conducted focus groups with participants.”) A good writer makes strong declarative statements in third-person plural (e.g., teachers, parents, leaders, etc.) in terms of “ought” and “should” rather than overusing redundant statements such as “I believe that,” “I think that,” “to me,” “for me,” etc. Almost always, sentences are strengthened by simply omitting references to self.

It is considered poor writing to refer to yourself in third-person (e.g., “this author”). It also may confuse the reader because there are typically multiple authors being discussed within a manuscript.

Academic Integrity: This paper will be screened by plagiarism-checking software, which reports to the professor the degree to which your paper is similar to other works. The following tips will help you avoid issues with plagiarism:

  • Direct Quotes: No more than 10% of your paper should be made up of direct quotes. Therefore, do more summarizing and paraphrasing than quoting. Short quotes should be in quotation marks and longer quotes of 40-words or more should be indented. If you do not set off direct quotes in this manner and/or do not cite them, it is plagiarism.
  • Ideas and Facts: If the idea or fact is not your own, you must cite its source. When not directly quoting, summarize, or analyze the idea in your own words.

Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via an online plagiarism tool.

INSERT ABBREVIATED TITLE OF 50 CHARACTERS OR LESS 4 Replace This Title: Ensure It Aligns with Your Thesis Statement Claudia S. Sample School of Education, Liberty University Author Note Claudia S. Sample I have no known conflict of interest to disclose. Correspondence concerning this article should be addressed to Claudia S. Sample Email: [email protected] Abstract Do not indent the abstract. Per APA, this is a brief, comprehensive summary of the contents of the manuscript. It may range in length from 150 to 250 words in length. Keywords: main words, primary, necessary, search terms Insert the Same Title Here as Is on Your Title Page Begin typing your introduction here. The purpose of the introductory paragraph is to introduce your thesis statement. Typically, the thesis statement is the last sentence of this one-paragraph introduction and serves as a transition into the rest of the paper. The thesis statement is the main idea of the paper—the main point you are making. Summary and Context See assignment directions regarding what to enter here. Cite your sources. If you mention an author’s name in the body of the paragraph, which is not required, insert the publication year after the first time you mention the author’s name in your paragraph. If you do not incorporate an author’s name into your paragraph, include it parenthetically prior to the publication year as in this example: (Garcia, 2020). Direct quotes should be rare and are not required. Generally, they should make up 10% or less of any manuscript. Citations are not just for direct quotes but are also for ideas—to indicate to the reader where you found the idea. Here is one way to cite a direct quote: Gutek (2018) was correct in his observation that “Freire was a doer as well as a thinker” (p. 463). Note that there is no period before the citation; it appears after it. Here is a second way to cite a direct quote: As at least one historian has noted, “Freire’s liberation pedagogy heavily influenced critical theory” (Gutek, 2018, p. 463). Page or paragraph numbers are required for all citations of direct quotes. Each paragraph should have a clear topic sentence. All topic sentences should support the thesis statement of the paper. Paragraphs serve to support the topic sentence of the paragraph. Ensure there is a logical progression in your writing and that you use appropriate transitions from one idea to the next. There should be no extra lines or spaces throughout the body of the manuscript. Sometimes Microsoft Word automatically inserts lines after headings, paragraphs, or sections. If you do not know how to remove these, simply do an internet search of your question: “How do I remove extra lines in Microsoft Word?” Critical Analysis See assignment directions regarding what to enter in this section. Notice that the headings are all Level 1 headings and are all centered and bolded per APA format. In such a short paper, you should not need Level 2 headings. Here is one way to cite the Bible: John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world” (New International Version, 1978/2011). Here is another way: The pastor opened the Bible and read, “For God so loved the world” (New International Version, 1978/2011, John 3:16). The translation is required only for the first direct quote of Scripture in the manuscript. However, if the subsequent Scripture quotes are from a different translation, the translation must be included every time it switches in the manuscript. Conclusion A good conclusion does not simply restate the thesis statement from the introductory paragraph, but it most definitely reiterates it by reminding the reader that the points that have already been made sufficiently support what was hinted at in the title, presented in the abstract, and introduced in the first paragraph. New support for the thesis should not be introduced in the conclusion. However, you may draw conclusions, identify trends, and discuss implications for current issues. References Notice how the examples below have a hanging indention. Everything in APA is to be double spaced, including the abstract, lengthy quotations, and the reference list. Nothing is single spaced. Authorlastname, A. B. (2019). Book title in italics with only the first word and proper nouns, like Christian, capitalized: If there is a subtitle, the first word is capitalized. Publisher. Authorlastname, A. B. (2019). Article title in regular font with only the first word and proper nouns and proper adjectives, like European, capitalized: Subtitles may or may not be used.
