Students are to search the Internet for scholarly articles on the events and causes that led to World War I. These can be primary or secondary sources but should come from academic sources. Recommended sites include: essays and articles on the rise of nationalism and imperialism in Germany and the other major powers involved in World War I; the rise of militarism in the decade before World War I; Irish- and German-American reaction to World War I; etc. These entries will provide a valuable resource for your second historical essay.
Criteria: General Instructions
Write a 4-6 sentence description of a URL on the specified topic. Submit it to the appropriate drop box AND post it to the Webliography in the course.
Your Webliography assignments should include an introduction to the site and a description, and/or evaluation, of it. Be specific. The key is that someone should be able to read your entry and know whether this site is what they might be relevant to their research. See the examples below for good descriptions.
Do not duplicate entries. It might be to your advantage to post early. Otherwise one of your classmates may beat you to the wonderful site you’ve discovered
How to Post When you go to the Webliography tab and click on it, you’ll see “add new entry,” on the left, just above the heading. When you click on it, you’ll go to a page that will have fields for you to fill in. It will include the title of the site, the category, the URL, the description, the site author, and the date it was last modified.
