ONE (1) historical document from the Hypothesis exercises and
In the short paper, the students must:
- Explain their understanding of the historical narrative for the event/topic of the document based on lectures, class discussions, films, and primary source documents read for the topic students choose. Please cite in the paper from where you are drawing your evidence [reading, lecture, document, podcast, film, etc].
- Then the student should explain the historical document they are analyzing and how it relates to that narrative – does it confirm the narrative and if so how? Does it contradict the narrative – why and how? Or does it add nuance to the framework of the narrative and give more explanation and if so – how and why?
work on giving the overarching narrative in the first part of your paper and then in the second part talk about how the hypothesis document you are focusing on fits into the larger narrative.
