This online writing guide offers History 100 students advice on writing the sorts of essays expected of them in this and other history courses at George Mason University. If you are enrolled in another History course at GMU, you will find much that the advice in this site applies to your courses as well. The advice here comes from many different faculty in the Department of History and Art History.

This site was created with grant support from the Office of the Provost and the Writing Across the Curriculum Program with assistance from the Technology Across the Curriculum Program. Special thanks to Joanne LaBeouf, who helped create the guide.
