Researching your Topic
This Guide provides you with resources to help you through your research. Keep in mind:
- Start by reading background information on your topic. A solid foundation is important when providing context in your movie.
- Use resources that provide more specific and deep information such as books and databases to give you ideas for narrowing your topic. (Narrowing is the hardest part for students.)
- Write down search terms to use when using databases and searching online: specific geographic locations, religious groups, leaders names, poiitical factions and movements, conflicts, problems encountered by citizens, for example.
- Primary Sources are a powerful tool in telling a story (newspaper headlines, quotes, photographs)
