Recourse Analysis Assignment Directions

This assignment encourages you to think critically about primary and secondary sources. You will be expected to analyze how information is conveyed and to think about its significance. The steps for this assignment are the following:

1. Choose a topic that is relevant to Christianity and formulate a research question.

Christian martyr, Christian architecture, monasticism, relics, or the Reformation.

Your research question should be focused and require more than simply a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. Questions that use the word ‘why’ are best suited for this assignment.

o Bad Question: How did early Christianity develop? (This question is too broad)

o Good Question: Why did Paul the apostle persecute the Christians? (This question is more focused)

The research question is worth 5%. The research question must be appropriate and require more than a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer in order to receive full credit.

2. Search for three primary sources and three secondary sources.

Review the handout about what constitutes a primary or secondary source uploaded to Blackboard. You can only cite the bible one time as a primary source. At least one of the secondary sources must be a peer- reviewed journal article. The other secondary sources must be a book. NO websites.

3. Cite your primary sources correctly according to Chicago/Turabian Style beneath the underlined heading “Primary Sources.” Write an evaluative paragraph of each primary source by answering the following questions in a paragraph of 5-7 sentences:

A. Who is the author of the text? What is the message of the text? If the primary source is material culture, then you should explain its context.

B. How does this source help you answer your research question?

Each primary source citation is worth 5%. These citations must be correct with no errors in order to receive full credit for them. Each evaluative paragraph is worth 10%. Partial credit for the evaluative paragraph will be given as follows: the questions are partially answered 7%, the paragraph is missing a substantial amount of information 5%.

4. Cite your secondary sources correctly according to Chicago/Turabian Style beneath the underlined heading “Secondary Sources.” Write an evaluative paragraph of each secondary source by answering the following questions in a paragraph of 5-7 sentences:

A. Who is the author? What is the author’s argument/thesis? The best place to find the author’s argument/thesis is the introduction and conclusion of the book or journal article.

B. How does this source help you answer your research question?

Each secondary source citation is worth 5%. These citations must be correct with no errors in order to receive full credit for them. Each evaluative paragraph is worth 10%. Partial credit for the evaluative paragraph will be given as follows: the questions are partially answered 7%, the paragraph is missing a substantial amount of information 5%.

5. Make sure to correctly format the paper and check it for grammar and punctuation errors.

This requirement is worth 5%. The paper can have no more than three combined errors in paper format or grammar/punctuation in order to receive full credit. The paper format must consist of the following: 1 inch margins, single space, 12 size font, and Times New Roman font. The paper must include your name, Religion 100, and date in the upper right-hand corner. Also, the paper should closely follow the example paper attached to these directions.
