First Analytical Paper Assignment
For this assignment, you will write a 500-750 word paper in response to the following prompt
using the supporting documents. Your
paper should be uploaded to Canvas. It will be checked for plagiarism using Turn-It-In.
Prompt: In the last few years, many in the history profession have turn their gaze toward the
study of local history. While several of the topics that we discuss in this class concern the entire
United States, I want you to consider the history of Tampa in a bit more detail. Therefore, for
this paper, you must examine excerpts from three oral histories of local residents conducted by
the USF Library (posted on Canvas). How do these histories discuss some of the themes we have
been going over in class (such as liberty and freedom)? What does freedom mean to these
immigrant and local workers? What are some of the challenges they faced in their new homes?
Essays must conform to ALL conventions of formal writing. This means that your essays
are expected to be doubled-spaced, 12-point font, grammatically correct, and refer back to
the primary documents. Please include a word count on your paper. Papers that are either
too long or too short will be penalized.
Please submit your document as a Microsoft Word file – or a similar word processing file.
DO NOT convert the file to a PDF.
• Your essay should begin with a paragraph that introduces and summarizes the oral
histories that you read. You should also have a sentence that attempts to answers the
• In the body paragraphs of the essay (aim for 2-4 paragraphs), use examples and evidence
from the oral histories to answer the questions above.
• The last paragraph of the paper should be your conclusion. In your conclusion,
summarize your arguments you made to answer the question.
Your answer should be based on material provided to you on Canvas, as well as the assigned
reading for this course. DO NOT CONSULT ANY OTHER OUTSIDE SOURCES!!! I do not
want to know what Google or Wikipedia tells you about this topic. All the information you need
to answer this question can be found in the documents posted on Canvas. I will dock points for
any outside research!
You can quote directly from the oral histories. I am not concerned with formal citations;
however, you need to make some effort at showing me what part of the document you found the
quote. You are free to use Chicago, MLA, or APA if you’re comfortable with those citations. If
you don’t know those, just include the last name of the interviewee and the page number after
Armando Lopez said of the Cuban Club “They give me some kind of assistance in time of
sickness and sometimes if I get sick they give me a small amount of money (Lopez 11).”
Don’t forget, you MUST also introduce and contextualize your quotes. You must tell your
reader what document you’re quoting.
• GOOD: Former slaves offered their own definitions of freedom. As Jourdan Anderson
explained in a letter to his former master, “here I draw my wages every Saturday night; but in
Tennessee there was never any pay-day for the negroes any more than for the horses and cows.”
For Anderson, payment for one’s work represented an important part of the transition to
• BAD: Former slaves had their own definitions of freedom. “Here I draw my wages every
Saturday night; but in Tennessee there was never any pay-day for the negroes any more than for
the horses and cows.”
The second example is extraordinarily confusing for your reader. Who are you quoting? Are
these your words? Introduce your quotes, and then explain them in your own words.
You should also try to avoid extended quotations. In almost all circumstances, you
shouldn’t be quoting more than one or two sentences at a time. When you’re trying to
quote a longer passage, intersperse your own words as necessary. When we see paragraphlength
citations we start to worry that you’re just trying to fill up space…
You should try to give yourself time to write and revise your essay. Take advantage of the
resources provided to you by the university. The bridge tutoring program will gladly assist in the
writing process. USF also has a wonderful writing studio that will also assist. While they will not
write your paper for you, they will help you edit and revise your paper. Below is there contact
