Travel log and annotated bibliography

Learning Goal: I’m working on a history multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Travel log,

Students will create a travel journal about their travels back to one of the cultures or societies studied in the course and write about the sites and events that they visited. The journal can be presented in a digital format such as a website, blog, social media posting series, or storyboard. The topic I chose was the Renaissance Period. so a travel log on the Renaissance Period.

Students must choose a minimum of 5 sites or events from a single culture or society.

  1. Examples of site: monuments, temples, churches, castles, famous marketplaces, battlefields, statues, painters’ workshops, taverns, etc.
  2. Example of events: gladiator fights, dinner parties, sermons, receptions, parades, religious festivals or ceremonies, marriage ceremonies, etc.

2. Students will use at least 10 sources (5 primary, 5 secondary) to research how the sites were constructed and used by the societies, what events took place at these locations, and the significance of these events and monuments for the culture visited.

  1. Pay attention to descriptions and images of the monument or site
  2. Be sure to understand the society that site, or event was relevant to
  3. Consider who might visit such a site. What types of people might the traveler encounter?
  4. Imagine what sounds, smells, conversations the traveler might overhear.

Descriptions of the 5 sites or events should be at least 300-500 words for each site or event presented. The descriptions should accurately demonstrate the cultural achievements and significance of the society studied and presented. Consider utilizing photos of the site or an event that may have been similar to help illustrate your narrative. The student will present their travel narrative and descriptions of location, along with any accompanying images (properly label and cited) on a digital platform of their choice. Here are some options:

  1. Google sites
  2. Blogger
  3. Wix
  4. Weebly
  5. WordPress
  6. Tumblr

Acceptable Primary and Secondary Sources include but are not limited to:

  • Primary sources (court records, memoirs/autobiographies, letters, artifacts, etc.)
  • Print secondary sources
  • Scholarly journals
  • Newspaper and other media and video archives
  • Appropriate history-related websites and databases (not Wikipedia)
  • Historical documentaries
  • History textbooks

for annotated bibliography, it also relates to the same topic used for the travel log. So the annotated bibliography should be related to the Renaissance Period.Students are to provide annotations for five primary sources and five secondary sources that will then be used in the final project. Sources should be directly related to the final project’s topic. Annotations should be a paragraph , usually 150–200 words in length.

For secondary sources, students should use high-quality scholarly sources, especially scholarly monographs or articles published in peer-reviewed academic journals. Students should avoid using the textbook, encyclopedia articles, or anonymously authored websites. ALL secondary sources, regardless of format (video, websites, articles, etc.) should be credible and authored by experts and professionals in their field of study geared towards an academic or higher education audience.

The bibliography should NOT include encyclopedias, textbooks, or websites and videos geared towards K-12 or authored (created and published) by unvetted, non-credible sources. For questions on this please watch the video by Dr. Campbell or ask your instructor.

For primary sources, students should be looking for documents that were originally written during the time period they are trying to study. While architectural or archaeological remains certainly do qualify as primary sources which can be used by scholars to reconstruct the past, they are problematic for an assignment like this. Written documents from the past should be your focus!

What is required:

  • Bibliography according to Chicago style
  • Identification of the source’s thesis and whether that thesis was ‘proven’ in the work
  • Verification or critique of the authority or qualifications of the author
  • Comments on the worth, effectiveness, and usefulness of the work in terms of both the topic being researched and/or your own research project
  • Identification of the author’s bias
  • Identification of the intended audience – but be specific! Do not state, “anyone interested in the topic,” as this is untrue. Consider the language, vocabulary and accessibility of the source.
