where and how to begin a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step
WHERE AND HOW TO BEGINA journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

1. You should have a preliminary idea about a decade or main topic that you are interested in. This is where you will begin.

2. Now, you have to decide two things.

A. How can I narrow down my main topic to a more focused category?

B. Does my history book give me enough background information on the main topic, the focused category and the decade?

how can i narrow down my general topic to a more focused category within that general topic
How can I narrow down my general topic to a more focused category within that general topic?

1. Go to history book and look at the general topic you chose.

2. This topic is too big and you have to narrow it down to a focused category within the topic.

3. Look at text features: the subheadings, pictures, graphs. This will help you focus on a category.

Ask yourself these questions:

4. Is there enough background information on the general topic to help you understand the bigger picture?

5. Is there enough information in the history book to give you a basic understanding of the focused topic?

6. Is there enough information on the decade to help you get started with the other two categories you will have to research?

i do it
I DO IT!

World War I

Text Features

One entire chapter is about war in Europe, not U. S. history

I will have to use the second chapter on World War I to find a focused category because this is about the U.S. in World War I.

Notice – This process did not take that long! Do not spend that much time looking for a general topic and focused category. Either the history book has enough background information on the general topic, the focused category and the decadeto get started or it doesn’t. Don’t waste time trying to find a category within a topic that has very little information.

slide7

You have to write and submit a statement stating the main topic, the focused category and the reason why you want to study this category. (see worksheet)

I want my main topic to be _______, and I would like my focused category to be __________. The decade is __________. I want to study this because ______________________.

I want my main topic to be the involvement of the United States in World War I, and I would like my focused category to be propaganda. The decade is __________. I want to study this because I am interested in what was happening in the U.S. during this time period.

  • 2. Focused Category (5- 6)
