dc.descriptionA winner of the James F. Slevin Assignment Sequence Prize, the sequence originates from the Department of History, Hist 1107, Pirates, Smugglers, Merchants, and Trade: Exploring Early America’s Economy. The sequence develops around three essay topics that require primary document analysis. Each essay assignment builds upon skills learned in the previous assignment: in the first, students analyze a document; in the second they must seek out implications of their chosen document; in the third they propose a hypothetical exhibition at the Johnson Art Museum, requiring them to develop a theme, find their own objects, and write a persuasive and historically accurate essay in support of their nominations. Students do a series of in-class writing exercises and group activities; they also receive handouts to guide their work, for instance, a handout listing questions that should be asked of primary documents. Other preparatory work described includes field trips to the Johnson Art Museum and to Kroch Library. 15 page pdfen_US
