Instructions
In one or two typed paragraphs, state which topic you have chosen for your research paper. Briefly explain what you have found in your research so far that led you to pick that particular topic. What did you find interesting? What would you like to learn more about? Finally, (and most importantly), state your working research question and thesis.
Research Topics
Choose one of the topics from the list below (or pick your own topic). Before settling on a topic, make sure to conduct several hours of research so that you are somewhat familiar with the sources (ebooks, academic journals) that are available. Pick a topic that you find interesting. You also want to pick a topic that has a sufficient number of sources available. If you only find one or two sources on a topic, you would want to choose a different topic that has more sources related to it.
Picking your own topic
. If you choose your own topic, it must be related to Mexican American History and be focused within the time period of the course: from Pre-Columbian times to 1850.
Research Question
Keep in mind that you will be creating a research question about the topic. Your answer to that question will become your thesis/argument. For example, if I chose “Middle Kingdom Egypt” as a topic, I would need to first conduct some research so that I know a little more about the topic. Then I would come up with a question based on what I learned from my research.
Sample research question: What events contributed to the downfall of Middle Kingdom Egypt?
There would be multiple ways to answer this (which is what you want). You would find that there are a number of scholars who have different perspectives on what led to the downfall of the Middle Kingdom.
Thesis
After conducting more research, you will answer your question with your thesis.
Sample thesis: While some scholars claim that Middle Kingdom Egypt fell as a result of foreign invasions, I will argue that several internal weaknesses, in addition to the external invasions, contributed to its downfall, including a struggling economy, class conflict and religious turmoil.
Notice the format of the thesis. Start your thesis statement with an assertion (this is your overall point): While some scholars claim that Middle Kingdom Egypt fell as a result of foreign invasions, I will argue that several internal weaknesses, in addition to the external invasions, contributed to its downfall. Follow your assertion with 3 supporting reasons (these are 3 reasons that show how your main point is true): including a struggling economy, class conflict and religious turmoil. This is the thesis formula I want you to use: Assertion + 3 reasons + geographical location + time period
Your main objective will be to convincingly answer your research question by making claims that are supported by evidence you found in your research which ultimately work to prove your overall thesis (your main argument).

Choose a film listed in The New York Times article (attached) — and write a review of it.
A good film review should discuss the issues raised by the film, address the film’s importance and purpose, state reactions to the content of the film, and connect it to ideas and material presented in class.
The film review should be at 850 to 1000 words in length and include the following:
IntroductionThe introduction, which may be one paragraph or longer, should begin to evaluate the film, and it should allude to the central concept of the review. What issues does the film raise? What do you see as the main purpose of the film? What are its major themes? Remember that the reader may not have seen the film—you need to give them enough information about the film to understand the analysis you will lay out in the following paragraphs.
AnalysisKeep plot summary to a minimum to focus on analysis. How does the film’s thematic content (such as history, race, gender, sexuality, class, plot, or the environment) affect your experience and interpretation of the film? Does it support or contradict anything you have learned? Relate the film to class themes, discussions, and readings. You may also relate it to other materials, discussions, and/or knowledge. Is the film historically (or factually) accurate and realistic? You may choose to discuss whether the film’s formal techniques (such as cinematography, editing, mise-en-scène, lighting, diegetic and non-diegetic sound, genre, or narrative) work to forward the thematic content.
ConclusionThe closing of the film review should remind the reader of your general thoughts and impressions of the film and briefly summarize the strengths and weaknesses of the film.
