!!WITTD - Thinking about Context

At this point in time, you should have done enough preliminary research about your topic for the Research to Learn Project to a good basic understanding of its historical context. Take a few moments to write about the historical context associated with your topic. Think in '''BIG PICTURE''' terms.

For instance, many of you have chosen topics that are associated with '''slavery.''' How was slavery a social issue, a political issue, a Westward expansion issue, a cultural issue, and an economic issue? (This might be very helpful for one of the exam II essay questions.)

Thinks about your historical topic and its context. Write 4 to 6 sentences that setup context. These sentences should help your readers understand the complexity of your topic. If you are dealing with a historical figure, think about the issues or challenges that this person had to deal with during his or her time period ---the social, political, cultural, and economic issues that your figure faced.
