Causes of Conflict: Revolution

Classroom Based Assessment (CBA)

 

Understanding the causes of conflicts may help us resolve current conflicts or even prevent future ones from occurring. You will research a revolution and analyze its causes from different social science perspectives.

 

In a cohesive and persuasive paper, you will:

 

  • State a position on the main cause in your chosen conflict .

 

 

  • Provide reasons for your position that include:
  • An evaluation of factors causing the revolution from three or more of the following social science perspectives (See attached glossary)
  1. political
  2. economic
  3. cultural/social

 

  • Relevant information from four sources (at least two of these must be primary sources) to support reasons for the position.
  • Make explicit references within the paper to four or more credible sources that provide relevant information AND use parenthetical citations to cite sources within the paper.
  • Create a bibliography.
