HIS 101 - Western Civilization to 1648 - Prof. Jackson: Home

What should I do first?

Greetings Students!

This guide was created to help orient you to the library and its resources, as well as to rules for citing sources for your Essay assignment. According to Professor Jackson: 

"Your task will be the formulation of a proper research thesis.

You must do the following:

a.) Identify a region of study within our study of Western Civilization from circa 3000 BCE-1648.

b.) Define a clear period of study that does not start before or go after the dates circa 3000 BCE-1648.

c.) Identify a clearly defined theme/thesis question that organizes the research. 

I am embedded in your Blackboard shell and you are welcome to contact me for further help at any time for this or other course assignments. 

Good Luck!
