Argumentative history paper about global awareness
The goal is to write an argumentative history paper that is founded on evidence.
Produce academic articles that are argumentative, thesis-driven, and evidence-based.
Build evidence-based arguments that show how regional and/or global factors influenced the development of a local issue in Southern Africa. (Awareness of the World)
Examine important events, ideas, and questions from South African history.
Write a 500-word piece that places your selected issue/topic in historical, regional, national, and/or international contexts. Consider this paper to be the topic’s chronological summary or starting point.
Assume you’re interested in Apartheid and have restricted your search to the township of Soweto. If your Travel Guide topic is “Taking a Stand in Soweto,” utilize this article assignment to produce a context paper that looks at the “big picture” of the Soweto township >> When and how was it founded? Who resided in that house? Etc. You should begin by discussing the late-nineteenth-century finding of gold in Johannesburg, as well as the influence of immigration and the mining boom on local inhabitants. You should also explain how Soweto was established in the early twentieth century as a means of establishing separate black settlements. You should also provide context for the township’s concerns against the government and explain how this led to the Soweto Uprising.
Make sure your paper starts with an introduction, then moves on to body paragraphs and a brief conclusion. A simple thesis statement that outlines your historical argument must be included in your introduction. Your argument for this paper should address the following question: How did the regional, national, and/or international context influence the development or outcome of the topic under consideration? The topic sentences in your body paragraphs should make a relationship to your argument.
All text should be double-spaced (except for footnote text). Each page should have a one-inch margin on all sides. Each paragraph’s first line should be indented.
Your paper must be at least 500 words long, but it can be as lengthy as you need to successfully respond to the prompt. Include a word count at the end of the paper and paginate it throughout.
