Since Adolf Hitler is one of the most infamous heads of state to have lived in modern times, there is naturally an abundance of information available about him. Depending on the assignment, it will likely be helpful to focus on one specific piece of Adolf Hitler. For instance, you might just focus on his war tactics, his psychology, or his powers of persuasion over the German people. Since there is an abundance of information available on Hitler, you may overwhelm yourself if you do not focus on something more specific than simply Adolf Hitler.
Generally, after selecting a topic, you will write approximately six full paragraphs about the topic. You will start with an introduction that discusses what your paper will be about, then you will organize the body of your essay into four or more additional paragraphs. Each paragraph should start with a sentence that discusses what that paragraph is asserting, and then supporting details should finish each paragraph. Once all four paragraphs of the body are complete, you will write your concluding paragraph (conclusion), which sums up your work and briefly restates the assertions made throughout the academic essay.
In terms of reliable sources, you will want to consider the following pieces: accuracy, authority, objectivity, currency and coverage. Accuracy can be measured in several ways. Consider whether or not there are sources listed for the information. Are there spelling and grammar errors riddling the source, or is it clear that the information has been edited? After you consider the accuracy of the resource, consider pieces that fit under authority. If the source has authority, the author is credible, the organization giving the information is doing so without bias and readily takes credit for its work, and the author and organization are qualified to write on the topic. Then consider objectivity. Does the sponsor of the page have an agenda or a commercial interest? Are there clear biases in the information? After objectivity, consider currency. Information may change over time, so consider when the information was written and updated. Some information does not change frequently, such as information about the Revolutionary War, but information about ISIS changes frequently as the organization is in existence today. Last, consider coverage. Is there enough information in the source? Is the topic covered in depth and did the author complete the information?
