In Search Of Professional Help With US History Homework
All subjects you might tackle in any school or grade, from grade school to the university, even on the doctoral level, can be enhanced by going outside of the classroom to the many resources of help that are available to students within and beyond your educational career.
From the internet, to your professor, to your university and good local libraries—typically the main branches—to your research librarian at your university or school, you need to maximize on all the help you can while you’re in college.
For example, this is the only time you will have access to the university’s expensive databases such as the MLA, APA, and all the journals and books you can read at home through accessing their network and the library on your computer. Alumni do not get this wonderful benefit. It also saves you money as well, because you won’t have to pay for printing costs. And at, typically, five cents a copy—these can get quite expensive.
Help Source Number One—Your Teacher/Professor
The first person to go to if you’re having challenges with a particular period or figure in US history is your teacher. They can send you to great resources, books, and websites which will save you the long and arduous process of sifting through the chaff for the golden wheat—in other words, in reading everything in search of the best thing.
The Internet—But Use it Wisely
You’ve heard about rewriting history. Well, history is especially subject to that. Some truths, such as the persecution of the Jews during World War II, are repressed by individuals for a long time before they tell the truth about them.
Also, the further we get away from an event, such as the battle at the Alamo, events began to be mythologized and get further away from any concept of truth. So, be wary of all websites. Again, you may want to ask your teacher about reliable internet sites for researching history. One good rule of thumb is to pick websites ending in “.edu”—meaning it is from a university or school.
Your School Library
Research librarians, every one I have ever met, really earn their pay. They work hard, are major resources of knowledge, and can even help you with your essay, because they know all aspects of documenting sources.
They can help you find books, web resources, videos, everything.
Use them while you can.
