- You should type your answers into this Word document (first download it to your desktop from Canvas), keeping both the original question and its number.
- You’ll upload these completed homework questions/answers to our Canvas course by the Sunday 11:59PM deadline for credit.
- Read the Homework Guide under our Week 3 module for more tips on how to improve your homework assignments.
NOTE: It is critical that the answers you provide are written in your own words. Only when you choose to quote directly from the textbook, may you borrow/copy the words of your author or his subjects, and then you must set out the copied/quoted material with quotation marks and page number reference noted in parenthesis at the end of the quote, e.g. (30). The point here is to develop the ability to discuss history in your own words, using occasional quotes with proper formatting. Anyone found to be copying words from the text and not properly quoting them will be penalized with a zero or reduced score for plagiarism.
