How to Write a History Paper?

You have received a task to write a history paper. What are your actions? Panic, stop to panic, and then start panicking a lot? It is what usually happens when one does not have much experience in writing. However, such anxiety can be overcome. Just mind that you should not plunge into writing trying to do everything at once but rather approach it gradually and take small steps towards a perfect history paper. Remember that even a genius with a natural aptitude for writing cannot compose a good paper in a single shot. For this reason, the assignment should be analyzed and broken down into smaller tasks. The first step in writing a history paper is to understand what it is. Such essays do not spare room for creativity and flamboyant or figurative language. History papers are about the development of an argument. You should take a stance and prove it with evidence and examples even if your professor does not require doing outside research but rather seeks for your opinion. These criteria should be met by default even if not explicitly mentioned in the task description.

For instance, you might be assigned a task to compare and contrast two regions during the colonial times, namely Virginia and New Hampshire as a part of New England. Of course, the most obvious approach would be to just list differences or similarities. However, if you do it this way, you are not likely to get a good grade because history papers always require a greater argument, which unites everything said. For this specific task, you might claim that differences stem from alliances between groups of Indians, geographical peculiarities, both factors, or something else if you think you have enough evidence from sources to prove the idea.

History papers may vary significantly in complexity or the depth of research required. However, certain things remain unchangeable. They are the necessity to formulate a strong argument, which can be observed throughout the paper, and support it with evidence for it to look well-thought-out and plausible. To meet these criteria, search for information, jot down the ideas, start uniting them in paragraphs, and eventually, your efforts will result in an excellent history paper.
