The project will focus on US women’s history from 1877 and after.
Assignments will use a variety of evidence from the textbooks, the e reader (American Perspectives), the monograph(s) you have selected/been assigned, appropriate articles, essays and/or documents from the Ethnic and Gender Studies Resource module in the Canvas classroom
Citations: For most of the assignments you will use the Chicago Manual of Style. CMS is a footnote style used in History classes. An e handout entitled “How to Cite” is part of your reading assignment in the “How to Pass” module. A few assignments have you using a parenthetical citation method. And one or two assignments will have no citation requirement but will only require a Bibliography
