The Historical Research Summary exercise ties in with the previous reading activity on history/culture. For this exercise, research and write about a historical event of your own choosing, and share the results in a discussion forum. This discussion forum is viewable to everyone in our class, and will serve as another creative resource for everyone later in the class, when you begin creating your own fiction/poetry.
Please write this in your own words. Summarize and paraphrase from the sources you use, do not copy/paste any phrases, sentences or paragraphs directly from the source. The writing should sound like you, in your voice.
