Dear History 11 Student:

The take-home essay (3-5 pages) will be accepted only through Canvas, through Turnitin, where it says, “Turn in Take-Home Essay Here.” No need to create a separate Turnitin account. Just logon to Canvas and submit it there.

For the final essay, due on Sunday of Week 16 by 11:59pm, use the following two primary sources to answer the prompt below:

1) Proclamation of 1763

2) Louisiana Purchase 1803

Prompt: The Proclamation of 1763 was a royal decree that prohibited the North American colonists from establishing or maintaining settlements west of an imaginary line running down the crest of the Appalachian Mountains. The Louisiana Purchase (1803) was a land purchase between the United States and France, in which the United States acquired land west of the Mississippi river for $15 million. Trace the history of these two documents using the questions below as guides. Be sure to write you essay in the traditional scholarly essay format. A proper essay should contain an introduction with a thesis statement, several body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph with several outside, reliable research sources to support your arguments. Do Not Use Wikipedia.

Provide the context for each primary source within its historical era. Consider answering these questions:

  • When were these documents written, and why?
  • What do the documents state?
  • Who approved/pushed for the Proclamation of 1763, and why?
  • Who approved/pushed for the Louisiana Purchase and why?

Analyze the primary sources to evaluate the significance across time in history. For example, consider these questions:

  • What has changed from the first document to the second?
  • What were the factors that brought about this change?

Analyze the historical impact on diverse groups. Consider answering the following questions:

  • Who were mainly protected under the Proclamation Line of 1763? What did westward expansion mean to Native Americans? What did westward expansion mean to whites, slaves?

The final papers will be evaluated according to the grading rubric at the end of this document.

Reference your textbook and lecture notes to write your essays and use only reliable academic writing (e.g. academic websites, books, academic articles and journals).

Make sure to cite your sources according to MLA or Chicago/Turabian writing manuals. Also, review East Los Angeles College’s library definition of plagiarism by clicking here. Remember, if you use more than three sequential words of another person, website, etc, cite the author. If you paraphrase an original idea or concept of another, cite the author.
