The student will also analyze and interpret the primary and secondary sources by explaining how the material impacted their chosen topic.
1. Choose a topic to conduct your research on (MY TOPIC IS DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGES) - keep in mind that it needs to be American History focused and must be within the time frame of this course.
2. Remember that sources are important. Use the Purdue OWL website to help you properly cite your sources.
3. Conduct the research - you locate at least one primary and one secondary source directly related to your topic. You must ensure that your sources meet the criteria for primary\secondary sources. Analyze the benefits and the disadvantages of primary and secondary sources that you've selected for your project

• Lastly, you'll need to corroborate all of your chosen sources and discuss how they relate or add information\perspective to your topic.
You will be submitting your project through SafeAssign. I expect formal academic writing and you should have taken the time to review your writing project for grammatical errors and mistakes. You will also need to formally cite the sources you use at the end of your project through a Bibliography\Works Cited as well as within your writing if you use any sort of direct quotes
SIMPLIFIED INSTRUCTIONS WITH EXAMPLE:
1. Pick a theme. For example, new technology. (Again mine is DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGES)
2. Pick events that support your theme. So, new technology, cotton gin, steamship, submarines, modern tanks, flamethrowers, cars, television, radar, etc. Highlight these events. What did your theme do to American history. For example, how did the cotton gin change farming and later urbanization, etc.
3. Use primary sources and secondary sources. Cite them!
4. Analyze your sources- any bias? any concerns?
5. Summarize your theme as it relates to our historical time period.
