There are three reading source and one book reading source Patricia Buckley Ebrey. The Cambridge Illustrated History of China. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2010 (2nd edition) Page 108-121 If you cannot find the book thats is fine just use other reading sources. You don not have to use all the sources, but you must use at least 2 of them. The paper should show your engagement with the weeks readings from both the textbook and additional, required readings posted on the course website. This is your opportunity to synthesize what you find significant and interesting in the readings. You do NOT need to summarize all of the readings. Your paper should be analytical. As you read through the materials, we encourage you to take notes and jot down any questions that might arise. Based on your notes, you should then choose a topic or two that you find significant. From this, you might formulate a discussion question or thesis statement. For example, the shift in textual and material evidence from the Shang to the Zhou dynasty indicates significantly different uses of writing. You might then find 3 specific points from the readings to support your thesis. Or you might find a common theme such as ritual, and elaborate on examples from the different time periods. Because the paper is only one page, you do not need to provide background information. Get to the point and provide specific support from the readings, so as to show your TA that you have read the material and thought about what you have read. You also do NOT need to provide a bibliography, but should provide in-text citations, such as (Sources, p. 35) for any information or ideas that are not your own and/or are not common knowledge.
