HIST 99 DON Final Paper Assignment The final paper of this course is more of an individual assignment. The paper will be 10 pages, double-spaced, plus a cover sheet and a bibliography and footnotes in the Chicago style. In addition to the primary sources I discuss below, you should obtain 10 secondary sources to help you interpret the primary sources. For the substance of this paper, I would like you to ob-tain any edition and any volume of one of the following two book series: Wheeler, William Bruce, et. al., Discovering the American Past: A Look at the Evidnece. Wadsworth Publishing. Wiesner, Merry E., et. al., Discovering the Global Past: A Look at the Evidence. Wadsworth Publishing. These are source books that are easily obtained from Amazon Used Book Marketplace. Each contains about 12 chapters and each of those chapters contains a set of about 12 sources with background information. Each poses a historical problem from which a student can develop his own thesis and write an original paper.
