1000 – 1250 Words
At least 5 Sources, including:
At least 2 biographical overviews
At least 2 contextual overviews
At least 1 primary source contemporaneous to the biographical subject
Students will write a biographical essay about a person who died before 1985.
This essay will include a governing thesis statement that makes a debatable claim about that person, their life, or their legacy.
To accomplish this, students will:
Choose a biographical subject who died before 1985
Learn about that individual and their life through biographical research in secondary sources
Learn about that individual’s cultural and historical contexts through historical research in secondary sources
Read something written by or about the individual while they were alive through research into primary sources
Following their research, students will synthesize what they’ve learned, and develop a debatable claim about that individual, which they will then substantiate via concrete reference to specific details and claims encountered in their research.
