BR 3 Step 3 – Analyze the Arguments, Evidence, and Interpretation
This part is the most involved. It requires a thorough reading of the Introduction, Conclusion (or last chapter) and three additional selected chapters in the book. It demands that you comprehend your authors arguments. Historians use that word to mean the authors interpretation, the case that he/she is making about the subject. When historians confront the evidence, whether it is many printed sources or archival records, they must try to make sense of those sources.
In this section, you will need to compose three sentencesand only threefor each chapter of the book.
1. For the first sentence of each chapter analysis (Introduction and three chapters of your choosing up to the Conclusion or last chapter of the book), begin with the words:
The main subject of this chapter is You need to find only one subject per chapter.
2. For the second sentence of each chapter analysis, begin with the words:

3. For the third sentence of each chapter, begin with the words: A specific piece of evidence that the author uses to support his case is ..
4. When you get to the concluding chapter – or the last chapter if it is a biography, identify three conclusions, using this language: The author concludes…..
5. Please use footnotes.
6. If you use the same information again, copy the footnote superscript (that raised number at the end of the sentence), and park it at the end of the next sentence, and continue until you are finished.
