NARROW IT DOWN
You must pick one thing to write about that falls between time period 1850 to the present and is about Chicano/a/x of course! After you select a theme or topic that you want to write your paper on you need to come up with a thesis statement. The thesis statement is one sentence and a good place for it is somewhere in the introduction of your paper (I want you to underline the sentence).
It is important to develop this because it is like the blueprint for your paper. It must include very specific details of what you are going to write about. It will also serve as a guide to keep you on topic. All thesis statements need to contain:
Who (who are the main people you are writing about?)
What (what are you writing about explained in clear terms)
When (the time period! A lot of people leave this out!)
Where (Locations is super important and be sure to include where things are taking place)
Why or How (cause and effect relationship, this happened due to this etc.)
Steps for selecting a topic/theme
You will explore a theme. The themes you choose and ultimately research and write about needs to be something covered in class, about Chicano/a history and falls roughly somewhere between the years 1850 to the present.
Choose a more general theme then research it
*****Grab at least 2 scholarly articles about your topic from the Library( You must grab your sources from here)
