Assignment Directions:
Write a 2-page, double spaced essay that is based on the 2-3 primary sources available within
the primary source sets. (See the list of topics below. The primary source sets are available
within the Module 6 Study Activities folder.) Analyze the sources within the context of time and
place. Create a strong thesis statement, and then support the thesis using at least 2 of the 3
sources. Be sure that background, secondary information, is only used to understand the
meaning of the primary sources. The evidence used to support the thesis must come from the
primary sources (the source itself). Do not use outside sources. The purpose of this assignment
is to demonstrate your analysis of the primary sources.
