Overview: As a public historian, I fully believe that history is useless without

Overview: As a public historian, I fully believe that history is useless without action. It’s not enough to just know about a topic; you need to make people care about and do something with that knowledge. For your final, I want YOU to be a public historian. Figure out a way to make people care or do regarding your Midterm topic and thesis. How do you want your research impact the world? How do you want that knowledge to inspire change? “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Breakdown:
1) For the first part of your final you need to assess the current/recent social and cultural understanding of your thesis. This will help you know if your method for creating action has already been done and other relevant information to help you “fine-tune” your method of change or desired impact. Examples (not limits) of lines of questioning for this section…..
Do your secondary sources give you ideas for creating relevancy? How so? How not? Do your secondary sources influence your desired action? Why? How?
What are “people” saying about your topic/thesis? Who are these “people”? Why are they important? NOT a review of secondary sources, that was the midterm. What are non-academic people saying? How/where are they saying it? Why?
Is your topic trending? Is your thesis trending in relation? If yes, why? If no, why not? How can either situation be beneficial or damaging to your plan of action.
Is there competition in your realm of action (ie. has it been done before? by whom? why?)? Is this a pro or con? Does it help or hurt your desired action? How so? Why?
Are there any current topics/trends/issues that could help/hurt your message delivery and action plan? How? Why?
Who are your most relevant audiences? How do you best reach them? How do you best get them to translate reach to action?
2) The second part of your final should be a fairly detailed description/plan for creating impact/action in society.
Use your secondary sources to help fill-in the content of your messaging plan.
How do you assess relevancy/impact? What is relevancy today? You can pitch action, but if you’re not aware of how to assess action – what’s the point?
Make sure it’s practical. Don’t worry about budgets, but make sure your strategy for action makes sense. (ex. TikTok dances to raise awareness about serious issues like paternalism, violence, rape, torture, enslavement Do not (to me), at first, seem like appropriate methods of action for such concerning topics. I can be proven wrong, though, that’s why we’re doing this project!)
Make sure it’s relevant. Don’t pitch a museum if you really don’t think a museum will work. I want a method you legitimately think will create change today or in the near-future – not 35 years ago.
How will this method create the change you want to see? 
How do(es) your relevant audience(s) impact/influence your method and plan? Do they? If not, why? If so, how?

Question 1 – Blue or the Gray? Imagine that you lived during the time of the American Civil War and had the same socio/economic/racial/gender position you have right now. Would you support the Union or the Confederacy? Be sure to explain why you chose the side that you do.  Remember, not all Southerners supported the Confederacy just as all Northerners did not support the Union.  Make sure to look at ALL the factors, and not just geography, when you are answering this question.
Question 2 – Attacking Civilians: The American Civil War saw the use of “total war” or deliberate attacks upon civilians by the military. Total war devastated certain areas of the country particularly Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia. Do you think the military should attack civilian targets? If so, are there certain civilian areas the military should not attack and what are they?  What civilian areas should the military attack? If not, what other means can be used to defeat the enemy?

If so, when does does honghui get this?

  
Question: Based on the evidence or the clues in the story, does it seem that Honghui realizes at some point along the way that this soldier (who is Mulan) is female, and not male? If so, when does does Honghui get this? Or, does he not know until the same time as the rest of them?  
If Honghui does realize it, why doesn’t he say anything, at least to her, since she would be in no position to call him a liar? 
And if he does not realize it, why is he so persistent in his efforts to be Mulan’s friend?
