The goal of the compare and contrast assignment is to demonstrate that you understand the material, can do further research on the topic, form an opinion, and defend that opinion well. In this assignment, you will choose a side on the Lewis and Clark Expedition and structure an argument. You must choose whether or not the expedition was “successful.” This topic has recently become a source of contentious discussion among modern day historians.
To begin your argument, a thesis statement should be clear in the introduction. For instance, the thesis statement of this paper would briefly state WHY you agree or disagree with the “success” of the expedition.
In the body of the paper, you should state the intended goals of the expedition and examine the results/impact. Make sure you look at the argument from different angles. Focus your research on the political, economic, social, cultural, and environmental impact of the expedition. Did Native Americans hold the same views of the expeditions “success” as say, President Thomas Jefferson?
Your paper should be 2-3 pages total.
In order to fully defend your position, it will be necessary for you to look for information OUTSIDE of the textbook. Please include at least three sources, other than the textbook. See the Chicago Manual of Style reference sheet for proper citation guides. A bibliography as well as parenthetical notations should be used. For any questions, ask me or view the Chicago Manual of Style reference sheet.
