Essay Paper Prospectus

I need someone to write the whole essay for me. But this essay goes step by step. So first essay paper prospectus is due and then the primary source analysis and later second source analysis and introduction is due and finally, at the end, the whole paper will be due.

Term Paper: Students will be required to write a historical essay roughly between 1200-1500 words (5-7 pages, double spaced). This will be a multistep process that will involve submitting a topic prospectus, primary and secondary source analyses, a bibliography, and a rough draft of the introduction. A guide will be provided with more information

So my essay paper prospectus is due first on 27th September.

PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SOURCES

Primary sources provide a first-hand account of an event or time and are authoritative. They represent original thinking, reports on discoveries or events, or they can share new information. Often these sources are created at the time the events occurred, but they can also include sources that are created later. They are usually the first formal appearance of original research.

Secondary sources involve analysis, synthesis, interpretation, or evaluation of primary sources. They often attempt to describe or explain primary sources.

Scholarly journals, although generally considered to be secondary sources, often contain articles on very specific subjects and may be the primary source of information on new developments.

Primary and secondary categories are often not fixed and depend on the study or research you are undertaking. For example, newspaper editorial/opinion pieces can be both primary and secondary. If exploring how an event affected people at a certain time, this type of source would be considered a primary source. If exploring the event, then the opinion piece would be responding to the event and therefore is a secondary source.

Examples of primary resources include:

· diaries, correspondence, ships’ logs

· original documents e.g. birth certificates, trial transcripts

· biographies, autobiographies, manuscripts

· interviews, speeches, oral histories

· case law, legislation, regulations, constitutions

· government documents, statistical data, research reports

· a journal article reporting NEW research or findings

· creative art works, literature

· newspaper advertisements and reportage and editorial/opinion pieces

Secondary sources offer an analysis, interpretation or a restatement of primary sources and are persuasive. They often involve generalization, synthesis, interpretation, commentary, or evaluation in an attempt to convince the reader of the creator’s argument. They often attempt to describe or explain primary sources.

Examples of secondary sources include:

· journal articles that comment on or analyze research

· textbooks

· dictionaries and encyclopedias

· books that interpret, analyze

· political commentary

· biographies

· dissertations

· newspaper editorial/opinion pieces
