Topic Help!

To help you consider the potential topics... using whatever resources you have at your disposal, your HIST 1301 syllabus, your Contending Voices and Give me Liberty textbooks, the Learning Community E Lib Guide, I'd like to give you time to brainstorm potential topics. You may also refer to this list for help: Famous Early American Orators

(Hint: Wooster's words of wisdom... What would Wooster do? Based on your performance on the first exam, pre-writing in Comp helped many of you perform well on the essay portion of the exam. Wooster strongly encourages you to consider choosing a historical topic, event or person that was significant in Post-Revolutionary America. Doing so will not only help you out on the second exam, it could also help you on the third exam. :))

Research Proposal is due on Monday, October 10th. Please bring a hardcopy to class on Monday.
