HIS 200 Writing Plan Progress Check 1 Guidelines and Rubric Overview: Throughout Theme: Approaches to History, you have been guided through beginning your Project 1: Writing Plan assignment, which you will continue to work on in Theme 2 and formally submit for completion at the end of Week 4 of the course. This progress check assignment provides you with an important opportunity to get valuable instructor feedback on the progress you are making and to ensure you are on the right track for your later submission. Prompt: The first half of Theme: Approaches to History has introduced you to how historians approach choosing research topics regarding historical events and asking research questions about those topics. After taking some time to explore the research topic samples in Theme: Approaches to History, learning block 1-3 (page 3), and research questions strategies in Theme: Approaches to History, learning block 1-3 (page 2), describe a historical event you have chosen to learn more about and develop a research question related to that event. Specifically, in this assignment, you will submit parts of the following elements of your Project 1: Writing Plan for review by your instructor:

In Theme: Approaches to History, learning block 1-3 (page 3), you worked toward the following element:

I. Describe the historical event that you selected. Why is this event significant?

In Theme: Approaches to History, learning block 1-3 (page 3), you worked toward the following element:

IV. Based on your review of primary and secondary sources, develop a research question related to the historical event you selected. In other words, what would you like to know more about?

Please note that the numbering included above directly aligns with the numbering of these elements as they are presented in the Project 1 Guidelines and Rubric. You will ultimately also need to describe the historical significance of your chosen event and include primary and secondary sources in your final writing plan with regard to the two elements you have started work on in this assignment, but you do not need to do so in this submission. You will be prompted to build upon this progress check submission to prepare your final writing plan for submission in Week 4.

Rubric Guidelines for Submission: The Writing Plan Progress Check 1 must be submitted as a one-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Follow the formatting of the example included in Theme: Approaches to History, learning block 1-4 (page 4), and include identifying information (name, course code and title, assignment title, name of university, and date) as well as section headings (topic, research question) as appropriate.
