For your initial post, organize your revised research questions, current thesis statement, and an outline or checklist of your plan for conducting further research on your topic into a new discussion post. In a few paragraphs, discuss what relevant sources you have identified and the process for accessing those sources. Next week, you will be prompted to respond to two of your peers’ initial posts.
When responding to your peers, critique their plan and offer suggestions for thinking like a historian. Does their plan suggest that they are thinking about change over time, context, causality, complexity, and contingency?
Note: This discussion spans two weeks and is graded at the end of Week 6. Your first post is due in Week 5, and your two follow-up posts are due in Week 6. A 10% late penalty will be applied for initial posts that are submitted after the assigned week. No discussion activity is accepted for credit after the close of the theme.
