HIS 100 Research Plan Preparation Worksheet

 

Prompt: Applying what you’ve learned about narrowing research questions, revise your research questions from your Topic Exploration Worksheet. In the tables below, replace the bracketed text with the original question, the revised version of that question, and one to two sentences explaining how you approached your revisions for that question to give your instructor insight on your revision process. Then, answer the questions about your primary sources below the tables by replacing the bracketed text with the relevant information.

 

Research Question 1

Original Question

Revised Question

What person or group of people were responsible for starting the apartheid in South Africa?

How did the government enforce apartheid on the non-white residents of South Africa?

My original question was very vague and would take a huge book to answer. After reading several articles and documents I decided that I want to know the exact person or party that created the laws that started the apartheid.

 

 

Research Question 2

Original Question

Revised Question

How has South Africa changed since apartheid was ended?

Did the South African Apartheid cause poverty problems for the people categorized as black?

This question has several answers, and I want to know if the apartheid caused poverty problems among the black race. I found they have several problems that the people of South Africa faced daily due to the apartheid. Due to all the different problems I decided to drill down to a specific issue that apartheid caused.

 

  1. Applying what you have learned about comparing primary sources and analyzing secondary sources, revisit the primary sources you listed in Part 3 of your Topic Exploration Worksheet, list them below, and describe what each of these sources adds to your understanding of your selected topic.

 

I have chosen to select different primary sources to ensure that I have the most accurate information for this assignment. I had chosen the sources looking to answer my original questions, however with the new questions those sources are not adequate to properly answer my questions.

 

  1. Name of primary source: Modern History Sourcebook: The National Party's Colour Policy, 1948

Author: United Nations. Edited by Halsall, Paul.

Hyperlink: https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/mod/1948apartheid1.asp

What this source adds to your understanding of your selected topic: This source gives me information on a policy that the National Party put into effect to separate the different races. In this document it states that they are doing the separation of races to protect the Europeans from the extinction of the white population. They also set rules on how the other races will be represented in the government. The apartheid government has the ruling set forth that the coloured race will have only European representatives that will vote on their behalf, but the representatives will be voted into position by that race. This article has given me a much better understanding of the rules that were put into place and caused the apartheid to begin.

 

  1. Name of primary source: Report of the Special Committee on the Policies of Apartheid of the Government of the Republic of South Africa, 1964

Author: UN. Special Committee on the Policies of Apartheid of the Government of the Republic of South Africa

Hyperlink: https://digitallibrary.un.org/record/840234?ln=en

What this source adds to your understanding of your selected topic: This source gives me information on how other governments from around the world were trying to assist the people of South Africa. The representatives that were sent to South Africa tried to get the United Nations to step in to protect all the people that were being tried just for opposing the racial policies. The best thing about this document is that it helps me to fully understand how the apartheid laws were causing major problems for the non-white races which could be as severe as death. The South African Government did not honor any resolutions that were put into place by the United Nations. This document helps me to understand how severe the government enforcement was for apartheid.

South African Apartheid
Apartheid was a racial segregation system in South Africa, introduced in 1948 and supported by the National Party (NP) government. This ideology divided two racial groups: black South Africans and white Afrikaans South Africans. It occurred because the racial groups had divergent opinions on living. Afrikaners began to think that they were superior to black South Africans. Racial laws that stimulated this separation were made. During this regime, the blacks were prohibited from associating with the whites. It severely disadvantaged the dominant population whose mistake was a failure to share the skin color of the rulers (South African History Online). Most people were kept above poverty because of their race.
