Alexander the Great

RESEARCH them and their times and get to know the person well! Look at secondary sources (sources written about them after their time) and primary sources (sources written during their time). You’ll need at least 3 sources overall, 1 has to be a primary source and 1 has to be a secondary source.
2. The Body (the Defense)

•Become the historical person and defend their reputation (see list below)!
-Using your research and knowledge acquired from class, defend the actions of the historical person in first person narrative (i.e. “I was king…”). Their self-reflection is crucial, but it must be done according to his/her own times and beliefs. This is not an autobiography.
*The person’s (your) position must be established early on in page one much like a thesis statement, or else the argument will fall apart!
-This paper is too short for lots of detail, but students MUST mention the details from moments/deeds in the person’s life as they defend themselves (i.e. Julius Caesar should mention his reforms/new laws and profitable conquests like the Gallic Wars to help him argue why he worked to take over the Republic…).
*Be sure you argue your stance as THEY would, NOT as YOU would. You must consider things as if you were from that person’s time and place.
*When you “sit down” to write your defense, do it at a time in his/her life when they have a moment and have done enough things. (At the end of their lives works best, or right after event discussed)
*No footnotes/endnotes are needed, but if you choose to quote the person, then you must cite it in Chicago/Turabian style
•Because these papers are short, your quotes CANNOT be longer than two lines.
*You must have these people write while they’re alive, though; they cannot have knowledge of the future and no ghosts, vampires, or zombies are allowed!
*The idea behind this defense is to show your understanding of the person and their times; try to make this as “real” as possible, but it’s important to also have fun with this!
3. Conclusion

•Emphasize your person’s stance and secure your reputation. Avoid repeating your entire argument

4. Bibliography/Works Cited––>it gets its own page (Chicago/Turabian style)

*See website below for help on Chicago/Turabian style:

•For academic book, provide: authors, titles of works, cities of publication, publishers, years of publication, and editors or translators if applicable, must be provided for each source.

•For academic journals, provide: authors, titles of articles, names of journals, publishers, cities of publication, years of publication, volume number, and pages of articles.

*Sources that lack authors or editors, publication years, or publishing houses will not be accepted

•Please note that the first line where the authors’ names should stick out on the left side and the rest of the information is indented, and last names are put in alphabetical order
