1 Define “Primary Source” IN YOUR OWN WORDS and give an example of a type of primary source document that you might find concerning the American Revolution.
2 Define “Secondary Source” IN YOUR OWN WORDS and provide an example of a type of secondary source document you might find about the World War II.
3. Define historical “evidence” IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

4. Define “thesis statement” IN YOUR OWN WORDS

5. In this class, we want you to master the most basic form of analytical writing – Rule of Three writing. In Rule of Three, you will have at least three points to be discussed laid out in your thesis statement. (From the Cheeseburger example: Cheeseburgers are the best food for a meal since they lead restaurant sales, are popular with average Americans, and have wholesome ingredients).

For this question, I want you to write a RULE OF THREE thesis statement for the following prompt: What is the best sporting event to watch (either on TV or in person)?

Remember you need ONE sentence with the three key points you will discuss in the answer.

6. Change over Time is an important analytical tool in historical writing. In this question, I want you to think about how things have changed in the recent past. Provide THREE examples (they can be political, social, cultural, economic, or even personal (but not too personal) of how things have changed from the way they were 10 years ago and today.

For each example use the following format: Describe what things were like 10 years ago, describe the change, describe how things are now.

Here is a personal example that might work for some of you (you cannot use this one). Ten years ago I was living in a rented apartment, I saved my money and now I am living in a house I own.

Here is an economic example (you cannot use this one). Ten years ago bookstores still sold the majority of books, after the development of smartphones and tablets, sales of ebooks are skyrocketing and online sales are higher than brick and mortar bookstores today.
