This brief handbook for survey courses in American history, western civilization/European history, and world civilization guides students through the various types of writing assignments they encounter in a history class. Providing examples of student writing and candid assessments of student work, this text focuses on the rules and conventions of writing for the college history course.

Within a mere 72 pages, this book includes chapters on short writing assignments-beginning with the sentence-and progressively moves on to longer assignments, including the essay exam, the five-page paper, and the research paper. This pedagogy accounts for all students, including those who may be studying history to fulfill a requirement.
