In your final project, you will bring together a number of primary sources on a related topic, and show, in a paper of between 5-7 pages, or 1500-2000 words, how beliefs. attitudes, laws, or perspectives concerning your topic or focus changed (or did not change) between the years (or some subset of years between) 1500 and 1865.
You must use at least three (3) written primary sources, and at least one (1) visual primary source in your paper. You should also have other secondary sources to aid in your interpretation of the primary sources. Your task will be to read and take notes on each of your primary sources, and ask yourself how these particular accounts demonstrate that attitudes, laws, and/or beliefs concerning your overall topic have, or have not, changed during the period of the course.
Be sure to focus during your reading on crafting a WORKING THESIS, and ultimately, a STRONG and SPECIFIC THESIS concerning your topic.
