Context:

You need to create a thesis and support it with a sources from the Primary Source Boards. 

Your thesis should talk about why and how an event or trend occurred in U.S. History, within the era we've been studying. It must have a point of view and be arguable (that is, someone else could argue it's not true). An interpretive thesis takes a stand, and uses the primary sources as evidence to prove it.

For example:

X happened because Y happened.

Although most people believe X, closer examination of the evidence indicates Y.

During this era people experience X, because of Y.

Writing Assignment (40 points, 35 points for your original post & 5 points for your reply):

Please create a few short paragraphs that include:

  • An interpretive thesis about one or more of the eras we've studied so far, in bold text
  • 2 primary sources from the first Primary Sources Board in chronological order, with each source related to the thesis through your own explanation
  • each source named and fully cited (author/artist, title, date, live link to a page where it is featured)
  • a one-sentence conclusion

     

Here are some tips:

  • Make the thesis interpretive and arguable
  • Avoid troublesome sources (if the citation information isn't complete, don't use it)
  • Discuss each source so it proves the thesis instead of illustrating it
