STEP 1: Review the scenario:
Imagine you represent your company at a service organization dealing with one of these two issues: Facing Economic Change or Engaging Civil Rights. Your supervisor has asked you to research information related to the history of one of these issues for your organization to help new employees and volunteers understand it better. Your predecessor already started a list of sample primary and secondary sources and collections of sources.
In this assignment, you will take the first step in creating your presentation to help new employees and volunteers understand how historical events can be applied to one of the issues currently affecting your organization. To do the research necessary for your presentation, you will need to choose four sources that are credible and relevant for the issue facing your organization.
STEP 2: Using the writing templates in Chapters 1 and 2 of the webtext, you will select the specific issue or topic you want to address and identify key words that can focus your choice of sources.
STEP 3: Then, from a collection of sources, you will choose two primary and two secondary sources that have relevant information for the historical events you want to include in your presentation. To put together your list of sources, the webtext writing templates will guide you through a set of questions to evaluate the credibility of each one.
