HIUS 222 Video Review 1 Liberty University
You will select 1 video of at least 30 minutes or a series of videos that, combined, are at least 30 minutes from the American History in Video Collection available through Jerry Falwell Library.
- Video Review 1 must address some aspect of American history between the end of the Civil War (1865) and the end of World War II (1945).
- Video Review 2 must address some aspect of American history between the end of the World War II (1945) and the present.
If you choose to view multiple videos for 1 of the Video Reviews, the videos must focus on a similar topic. For example, you could either watch 2 videos on Theodore Roosevelt or on Apollo 11; however, you could not watch 1 video on Theodore Roosevelt and 1 video on Apollo 11 for the same Video Review.
In the review, you will properly cite the videos and write a full, 1-page summary. You will then identify the following in order to create a bibliography: 3 scholarly books using Jerry Falwell Library’s search engine and/or WorldCat (www.worldcat.org); 3 scholarly articles using JSTOR, Academic Search Complete, Academic OneFile, and/or Summon (found on Jerry Falwell Library’s databases); and 3 reputable websites. Current Turabian formatting as found in the History Department’s Quick Guide to Turabian is required. A sample of the assignment is available on Blackboard.
Specific Policies for Video Reviews
- You must follow the format of the sample review that is available on Blackboard. Video Reviews that do not follow that format will be graded accordingly.
- The summary must be typed and doubled-spaced, have 1-inch margins, and be 1 page.
- You must place numbers at the bottom of each page.
- Each source in the bibliography must be single-spaced with an extra space between each source.
- Read and apply the “Tips for Reading and Writing in History” (found in the course’s Additional Information folder). With very few exceptions, the best reviews in this course will be the ones that undergo several revisions. In your revisions, check for grammatical errors, organizational problems, and the persuasiveness of your arguments.
