HIS 200 Historical Analysis Essay Progress Check 1 Guidelines and Rubric

Overview: Throughout Modules Five and Six, you have been guided through beginning your Project 2: Historical Analysis Essay, which you will continue to work
on in Modules Seven and Eight and formally submit for completion at the end of Module Eight of the course. This progress check assignment provides you with
an important opportunity to get valuable instructor feedback on the progress you are making and to ensure you are on the right track for your later submission.

Prompt: Modules Five and Six have introduced you to how historians approach assessing historical evidence to refine their thesis statement and message. By
now you should have enough evidence compiled from your research to begin writing your historical analysis essay. You will begin working on the essay piece by
piece. In Module Five: Analyzing History, learning block 5-4 (page 2) in the webtext, you will work on drafting an introduction for your historical analysis essay.
This introduction will include the necessary parts of an introduction: an explanation of the topic and argument, an overview of evidence, and your revised thesis
statement.

Specifically, in this assignment, you will submit parts of the following elements of your Project 2: Historical Analysis Essay for review by your instructor:

In Module Five: Analyzing History, Learning Block 5-4 (page 5) in the webtext, you worked toward the following element:
I. Introduction: In this section of your essay, you will introduce your readers to the historical event you selected. Specifically, you should:
A. Provide a brief overview of your historical event. For instance, what background information or context does the reader of your essay need?

In Module Five: Analyzing History, Learning Block 5-4 (page 1) in the webtext, you worked toward the following element:
B. Based on your research question, develop a thesis statement that states your claim about the historical event you selected. Your thesis statement
should be clear, specific, and arguable, as it will give direction to the rest of your essay.

Please note that the numbering included above directly aligns with the numbering of these elements as they are presented in the Project 2 Guidelines and
Rubric. For your final historical analysis essay, you will also include body paragraphs, a conclusion, a reference list, and your essay’s overall message, but you do
not need to include them in this submission. You will be prompted to build upon this progress check submission to prepare your final historical analysis essay for
submission in Module Eight.

Rubric
Guidelines for Submission: The Historical Analysis Essay Progress Check 1 must be submitted as a 1-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-

HIS 200 Writing Plan Progress Check 2 Guidelines and Rubric

Overview: Throughout Modules One and Two, you have been guided through beginning your Project 1: Writing Plan assignment, which you will continue to work
on in Modules Three and Four and formally submit for completion at the end of Module Four of the course. This progress check assignment provides you with an
important opportunity to get valuable instructor feedback on the progress you are making and to ensure you are on the right track for your later submission.

Prompt: Module Two: Approaches to History, continued, has explored how historians select search terms to locate secondary sources that help them find
answers to their research question. Return to your submission for Progress Check 1 and expand upon your event’s historical significance, describe two secondary
sources you could use to research your event (along with search terms you used to locate those sources), and support your research question with secondary and
primary sources.

Specifically, in this assignment, you will submit the following elements of your Project 1: Writing Plan for review by your instructor:

In Module Two: Approaches to History, continued, learning block 2-3 (page 3), you completed the following element:
I. Describe the historical event that you selected. Why is this event significant?
II. Describe at least two secondary sources that you could use to research your historical event. Your sources must be relevant to your event and must be
of an appropriate academic nature. In your description, consider questions such as: What are the similarities and differences in the content of your
sources? What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your event? What was your thought process when you were searching for
sources? How did you make choices?
IV. Based on your review of primary and secondary sources, develop a research question related to the historical event you selected. In other words, what
would you like to know more about?

Please note that the numbering included above directly aligns with the numbering of these elements as they are presented in the Project 1 Guidelines and
Rubric. You will ultimately also need to describe primary sources that you could use to research your event as well as the audience and message for your
historical analysis essay, but you do not need to do so in this submission. You will be prompted to build upon this progress check submission to prepare your final
writing plan for submission in Module Four.

Running Head: THE ASSASSINATION OF JF KENNEDY 1
THE ASSASSINATION OF JF KENNEDY 2
The assassination of JF Kennedy
Name
Institution
The assassination of JF Kennedy
Event Chosen and its Significance
The event I chose for this assignment is the assassination of the 35th American President, JF Kennedy.The event took place on Nov. 22 1963 in Dallas Texas as the president embarked on a series of fund raising perceived as a campaign strategy. In the vehicle was the first lady, Jackeline Kennedy. Reports also indicated that the vice president and the Governor for Texas were in the motorcade too. Although the truth about the assassination is marred with numerous conspiracy theories, two of them are widely accepted. One group claim that the president was killed by parties linked to anti-Castrol group which could have used Lee Harvey Oswald. A second faction believes that the many conflicting reports on the event point to the government’s involvement in the event. The subsequent effects would see the election of President Lyndon Johnson who later established civil rights and the respect for all races, although loathed by the southerners.
Secondary Sources
For further research on this subject, I would use two articles that give different angles to the event. First, I would use an article by Salgado and Prieto. The two historical researchers suggested that the death of the 35th president has to be looked through the angle of the social political circumstances of America at the time of the event (Salgado & Prieto, 2017).
Secondly, I would rely on a study by Ponterotto which was published in 2017. The scholar focuses on the effects of the president’s assassination on the subsequent 1964 election where the ground laid by the assassinated president coupled with the national mourning culminated in Lyndon’s election (Ponterotto, 2017).
Research Question
To further understand this event I would raise the question- what were the political effects of the assassination of JF Kennedy on the American political terrain?
