Who, what, when, where. Author’s argument (why).
Find a history book that is generally about the topic of the article you are reading. You DON’T
have to read it. Locate two scholarly reviews of the book (JSTOR). Use those reviews to help
substantiate or counter your own discussion of the article you just read. Use inline citations to
document quotations from the article you chose and use standard footnotes to cite your book and
reviews. Include something about the author (hint-they might have written a book on the same
topic as what you are reading!). That could be about other books, a university where they were
notable, or that they are dead. Obituaries are great places to find stuff out; book covers, too.
Make sure you cite where you find this information.
