IMPORTANT OTHER REMINDERS:

4. This journal is to be sent via the internal blackboard email. You

must send it as a single attachment. It can be sent in a single word,

rich text, or pdf style document. You can also just copy and paste it

into the blackboard message box too. DONOT send it as a Google

Drive Link, Apple Pages, or other such link/format that cannot be

opened via a normal PC on blackboard, and if you do this you will

not get credit for the assignment. DO NOT send it to my outside

email address, and if you do this you will not get credit for the

assignment. I must be able to open and read your journal. If I cannot

you will get a zero. It is your responsibility to assure the journal is

sent in the proper manner in all regards.

5. Here is an example of how to format your Assignment:

Journal Topic One: (Title of website source being reviewed)

Your Journal Entry for the 1st website source:

This should include a good 200 to 300 long word review of what you

observe about the research website for topic one. Discuss how it

comes across to you historically and what stands out about it in

terms of lessons, historical conclusions, and intriguing information.

Also consider some of the aforementioned questions:

Does the site offer lectures or videos?
Does it offer helpful historical documents?

Does it seem to be easy to read over and find information on?

What is the best part of the website in terms of research material in
your view?

*Simply repeat the above example for the 2 required entries*.

http://worldhistorymatters.org/

http://worldhistorymatters.org/

6. You should aim for keeping track of a word count for each entry.

Each review entry needs to be between 200 to 300 words. Since

there are 2 entries for this journal, it would be good to aim for

around 400 to 600 words for the entire series of entries. If you veer

to far over or under this range then your journal will likely lose

points!

7. I am glad to give rough draft feedback on this assignment via in

person conference, email, or phone call. I am also glad, after grades

are posted, to give post assignment feedback. These are both to be

done via student request via office visit, email, or phone. I also need

atleast 48 hours notice ahead of the assignment due date for any

rough draft requests.

8. TWO KEY THINGS TO RECALL: Do not plagiarize any part of

this assignment. Do not use quotes in this assignment. You should

make sure that you are using your own wording and in turn original

informed analysis on all portions of this assignment. If you have

questions on these two items then reach out to me for feedback!

9. Finally a failure to properly follow instructions on this handout

may result in a loss of points or a zero on the assignment!
