½ page (This will be a continuous weekly essay that need to be revised and expand weekly)
Write about the California historical subject that you are interested in researching more about. Pick a topic and state why you picked this one (A good topic to talk about is what topic to choose as a topic!) Also make sure that you list a few questions that you can ask yourself about the subject.
Remember this is an ANALYSIS – not an opinion presentation. Students often fall into the ‘summary’ pitfall for this assignment. Your research has to be an ANALYSIS – you want to prove an idea.
To gain full credit Discuss in detail your topic/idea that you want to research.
