OTHER: please finish it as soon as you can and I will pay extra if it is done within 2 hours, I know the time is not much but I really stuck Thank you could you please go back to your final timeline assignment and clarify on which page numbers in the textbook you found your evidence? Or could you clarify what sources beyond the textbook you used? That will make it much easier to decide what to do. Comments from Customer PREVIOUS PAPER INSTRUCTIONS (#441446026): this is the book we are using ( Tignor, Robert et al., Worlds Together, Worlds Apart, Volume 2: From 1000 CE to the Present. New York: W. W. Norton & Co, 4th, 5th, or 6th edition. ) please follow step by step and refer to the book as it is the main leason and use as many sources as needed and let me know if you have any questions World since 1500 | Final Timeline Project Instead of a traditional paper, your final assignment will be to construct a four to five-page timeline. The timeline should include what you believe are the five most significant turning points in world history from the year 1500 to the present. These do not have to be “famous” events: they could be the year that first British slave ship landed on the coast of Africa, for instance, or the moment when the smallpox virus began to spread across the Americas. You are also welcome to do a themed timeline—in other words, you can select what you think are the five most important turning points in women’s history, environmental history, economic history, the history of race, or whatever subfield of history you prefer. The final product should: Be four to five double-spaced pages long (1100-1300 words, though it’s okay if you’re a little long) Include five dates that you believe are particularly significant turning points in world history Contain five distinct thesis statements, one per section, arguing for the significance of each your selected dates. In other words, each entry needs to look like a mini-essay. Thoroughly cite the course readings, but only the course readings. You should not do any outside research. Include citations in the parenthetical author, page number format: such as (Anderson, 12). You do not need a bibliography. Each entry should: Be contained in a single, page-long paragraph of about 225-250 words Open with a sentence summarizing what happened The opening sentence should be followed by your thesis statement, which argues why, precisely, this event was historically significant. Be stated in the form of a clear, concise argument. Be original. It cannot simply repeat an argument from another author. Be strengthened by the evidence provided in the rest of the paragraph. Answer a “how” or “why” question rather than a “what” or “who” question – in other words, it should suggest an interpretation rather than a description. Be backed by at least three citations from the course readings. Please do not simply copy and paste quotes. Instead, rephrase them in your words so as to better demonstrate why they provide support to your main thesis End with a concluding sentence that links your evidence to your central thesis. In other words, each of the five paragraphs should be an abbreviated version of the short papers, opening with a topic sentence and a thesis statement, followed by several evidentiary sentences, and ending with a concluding sentence that demonstrates how the assembled evidence supports the central thesis statement. Feedback Historically, students rarely read the feedback on final assignments, so I will not automatically be leaving detailed comments on this assignment like I have during the rest of this semester. But I would encourage you to email me if you would like my comments on your assignment, and I will be happy to send them to you. Objective The goal of this assignment is to give you a chance to reflect on what you have learned in the course, put all of our class sessions in relation to each other, and think about what you now see as historically significant, without inducing the stress of a sit-down final. It is also a useful exercise in drafting concise but persuasive free-standing paragraphs. Example paragraph Note the bolded sentence is my thesis statement 1453: The Fall of Constantinople. In 1453, Ottoman forces under Mehmet the Conqueror finally took the city of Constantinople and effectively brought an end to the Byzantine empire. While city had been surrounded for years and the waning Byzantines no longer constituted a real threat to Ottoman power, its fall was an event of enormous symbolic significance, as it bestowed newfound religious legitimacy on the Ottoman Empire, attracted diverse allies seeking to share in Ottoman success, and indirectly triggered a revival of learning in Europe as refugee scholars fled the ruin of Byzantium. Until the conquest of Constantinople, the Ottomans struggled to position themselves as warriors for the Muslim faith. The empire mobilized the energies of its many non-Muslim subjects and made many opportunistic alliances with non-Muslim neighbors to advance their own power (Mehmet II Primary Source, 2). Moreover, many Muslim jurists and scholars believed that Caliphal authority should be limited to members of the Prophet’s tribe, so as a dynasty with Central Asian roots, the Ottomans could not claim to be Caliphs (Lewis, 124). But the conquest of Constantinople, which was prophesied in many of the foundational texts of Islam and led to the demise of a longstanding enemy, gave the Ottomans a significant boost to their religious legitimacy (Lewis, 133). Conquering a city long believed to be impregnable also convinced many people in the eastern Mediterranean—Muslim and non-Muslim alike—to ally with the Ottomans, who were seen as a rising power that offered many opportunities to its friends (Lewis, 332). Finally, the fall of the city led to an exodus of refugees, many of whom were deeply familiar with Muslim technological achievements and the texts of antiquity. They brought their knowledge, and many important texts, with them as they spread across Europe, and helped play a role in the nascent Renaissance (Tignor et. al., 446). The impact of the fall of Constantinople thus set the stage for two major transformations of the following centuries: the rise of Ottoman power and the burgeoning of European science and thought.
