Identify resources other than the internet to utilize. NARROWING A TOPIC: Topic Funnel Theme Your Interests Broad Topic

Narrow Topic The sis WRITING A THESIS STATEMENT: Components The NHD thesis statement should incorporate three main components: Address the five Ws. Who, What, Where, When, Why Connect to the theme Use the theme words in your thesis and connect throughout the project.

Historical Impact (So What?) Make a research-based claim about why this topic is important in history. Thesis Statement Example: Topic Death of over 10,000 Union POWs at Andersonville Prison Who: Mary Harris Jones, a.k.a. Mother Jones What: Took a stand against child labor, parading young, crippled workers through the Northeastern states. Where: United States When: 1903 Why: Politicians ignored child labor and unsafe working

conditions. So what?: Raised public awareness about the horrors of child labor, leading to nationwide reform. Thesis Statement Example Child labor and unsafe working conditions where perpetuated by corporate greed were rampant why during the United States Industrial Revolution. Due who to conflicting interests, newspapers and politicians largely ignored the issues. Mary Harris Jones, a poor, elderly Irish immigrant, became Mother Jones, when an unlikely hero to the working class. In 1903, she what

took a stand against child labor, parading young, crippled workers through the Northeastern states, giving impassioned speeches along the way. Though the odds were stacked against her, Mother Jones successfully broke barriers and raised public awareness about the horrors of child labor, leading theme to nationwide reform.So what? Incorporating the Thesis INCORPORATING THE THESIS: MAINTAINING A CONNECTION

Papers Tie each paragraph to your thesis. Edit the thesis statements a few times and revisit material that may no longer be relevant. Websites

Thesis statements should be identified on the home page. A lot of information can be included in websites. Stay on topic by including an element of the thesis on each page. Exhibits

Its tempting to use a lot of images to fill up space. Choose images that help them make your point. Each image should have a reason for being there. Exhibit boards should be organized so the thesis is easy to spot, the font is large enough to read, and the argument has a natural flow. INCORPORATING THE THESIS: MAINTAINING A CONNECTION Performances

Performances should start with a thesis statement created through the same process as any other category. Use your thesis to guide the arc of the performance. The thesis should be stated near the beginning of the performance, and again as part of the conclusion. Documentaries Make an effort to separate out your thesis from the rest of the narration. You can do this by incorporating subtitles, shifting the

music, or any other way you want. The thesis can be included in the conclusion as well. Resources NoodleTools noodletools.com/partners/nhd Complementary subscription for NHD teachers and students Teacher feedback Note-taking and outlining Create accurate annotated bibliography Source evaluation
