Stage 4: Writing a Paper Based on Primary Sources

Historians seldom write pieces as brief as History Engine episodes, and the brevity of the semester does not allow time for the skill development that might occur through the writing of a paper of more than moderate length.  Taking a middle way, students write a paper approximately ten pages in length, telling a story that makes a point about the larger historical issues that are illustrated through the primary sources in the Wheaton Family Papers.
