Define a topic and explain its significance:
- What is it? Define it.
- Who played a/the significant role in it?
- When did it occur? Where did it occur? (How does its timing or location matter? if it does. Often it doesn’t!)
- How does or did it work?
- Why did it happen? Why is it important? (for understanding the course concepts and materials).
…..and any other aspect of the concept that is important for understanding why it is important for the study of American democracy.
