    • Construct a research question and conduct research to enable you to use a

    • allow 10 minutes for questions
    • provide a handout of 1000 words or equivalent activity.
    EUB253 – Assessment 1 Page 2 of 7
    This is an authentic assessment because:
    • Historians must understand that there is an overwhelming amount of information
    available on any given historical topic, therefore it is imperative that the most
    reliable and informative sources are used to develop understandings of Ancient
    societies.
    • History teachers aim to have students think historically and participate in inquirybased learning.
    • The 2019 Ancient History General Senior Syllabus requires the teaching of Ancient
    societies.

    Submission information
    What you need to do All Students
    During tutorial (in week 1):
  4. Form a group of 2-4 and identify:
    a. a society that is of particular interest to you and your group members. This
    society must be chosen from the time periods studied in Module 1 (The
    Ancient Near East 3000BCE-330BCE).
    b. a range of societal factors and allocate one to each member of your group to
    conduct their independent research on. For example, if your chosen society
    is Persia (559-330) the societal factors could be: Development of Persia’s
    military, family and gender roles, religious practices in Persia from 559-330.
    c. have these societal factors approved by your tutor.
    d. Schedule a weekly online meeting with your group members to share your
    individual research findings, and to provide each other formative feedback
    and feedforward.
    Independently:
  5. Develop a suitable research question that will allow inquiry into a societal factor,
    and that is arguable, for example, Why did Thutmose III destroy all records of
    Hatshepsut? (Royal family – Egypt) Or Who were the winners of the battle of
    Kadesh? (War – Egypt OR War – Hittites)
    Once you have developed your research question you will:
    a. Conduct research
    b. Analyse and synthesise information from a range of sources, including
    primary sources, to answer your research question
    c. Make note of the historical debates between historians.
  6. Write a 1000-word evidence-based argument in response to your research
    question. This could be in the form of a blog, article, essay or other written
    genre.
    Note: In academic writing, an argument is usually a main idea, often called a
    ‘claim’ or ‘thesis statement’, backed up with evidence that supports the idea.
    In this argument, you will:
    a. clearly state your argument
    b. express your knowledge of your chosen feature of society in a clear and
    effective way, incorporating your analysis and synthesis of historical
    evidence from your research of a wide range of primary and secondary
    sources (as a rough guide, 10 quality sources could provide the information
    needed). It is appropriate to include images of physical primary sources such
    as pottery, jewellery etc but you must reference them appropriately.
    c. identify and explain the historical debate.
  7. Read the forum instructions on Blackboard and contribute to the class
    discussion.
    As a group (in class and/or own time):
  8. Prepare and present a 20-minute of your team’s findings (this will take place in
    the second half of Zoom tutorials), in which you:
    a. Introduce yourselves: state your names and your society and time period
    b. Each member of the group will:
    i. Present their historical argument
    ii. Explain how historians have shaped our understanding of this
    time/event/personality/factor
    EUB253 – Assessment 1 Page 4 of 7
    c. Present a comparison and evaluation of the research of the whole group
    (what were the overlaps or inconsistencies found)
    d. Conclude with an explanation of the synthesised picture of the society based
    on each group member’s research.
    Note: there is an expectation that a visual aid will be used, for example,
    PowerPoint, Prezi, Keynote etc.
    e. Allow for 10-minutes of question time. This may be conducted at the end of
    your presentation or throughout.
    Note: Your whole group must be present during the tutorial and answer
    questions. You are welcome to use other tools to create your presentation but
    ensure that you can appear on screen at the same time as the evidence you are
    presenting.
  9. Prepare a 1000-word or equivalent hand-out to accompany your presentation
    a. this should not be a print out of your slides, but should support the
    information you are presenting
    b. should include images and text
    c. may include activities for the audience to complete.

    Academic Integrity
    As a student of the QUT academic community, you are asked to work to uphold the principles of
    academic integrity during your course of study. QUT sets expectations and responsibilities of students,
    more specifically it states that students “adopt an ethical approach to academic work and assessment in
    accordance with this policy and the Student Code of Conduct. E/2.1 (MOPP C/5.3 Academic Integrity).
    At university, students are expected to demonstrate their own understanding and thinking using the
    ideas provided by ‘others’ to support and inform their work, always making due acknowledgement to
    the source. While we encourage peer learning, it is not appropriate to share assignments with other
    students unless your assessment piece has been stated as being a group assignment. If you do share
    your assignment with another student, and they copy part of or all of your assignment for their
    submission, this is considered collusion and you may also be reported for academic misconduct. If you
    are unsure and need further information you can find this at
    http://www.mopp.qut.edu.au/C/C_05_03.jsp#C_05_03.03.mdoc.
