Research Paper: Writing Historical Fiction
Students often struggle with History 101 because it is hard to connect what happened in the past with what is going on today. I designed this research paper to be directly applicable to you. “Colonial American history Through My Lens” is a research paper based on your current identity transplanted back to colonial America from the period of pre-colonial until 1877. All laws, events, and research must be contained within this period. No contemporary laws, events, or people!
The Goals of this Paper:
a. Identify primary source documents appropriate to your research.
b. Interpret the application of laws, court cases, and customs.
c. Create an argument and use primary sources to support your claim.
Understand the critical connection of the historical past and how it shapes today’s experiences.
