  • Who is the person you have chosen?
  • What do we know about their background (social, religious, economic, labour/job/position)?
  • What was this person's stake in the conquest? (What did they gain or lose? How did it affect them?)

For the first lesson please follow the Diigo Online Lesson tutorial, create your account, ensure you have the extension installed in Chrome, join the correct research group, and begin bookmarking the web resources you plan on using.

Use the questions from Lesson 1 to guide your search and note taking.
