The Historical Context page deals with the "real" part of your project. The Filmic Context page, which you will do next, will deal with the "reel" part.

The purpose of the Historical Context page is to give users the "facts" and a way to do their own study of the history element.

The Historical Context page has 2 parts:

  1. An encyclopedia-type essay with the "facts" of the historical subject matter
  2. A list of resources for studying the historical subject matter with substantial annotations (usually longer than review annotations) and broken down into three sub-categories:
    1. Print
    2. Video
    3. Online
