c. What access did the author have to the events or ideas described?
3) What is the genre of this text?
a. You will read a diary, a law, a shopping list, and a divine hymn very differently, and they will provide different kinds of information.

Have an analytical thesis and support it with an appropriate blend of information from the primary source and with the possible addition of outside reading.
The number of sources is not exact, use the book, the sourcebook, and a bit outside material if needed. If you use outside sources, please make sure it is from ProQuest. I wrote 5 sources required, but I just put a number. You can use less.
