My distance- learning tutor has gone away on holiday for the summer, having left me the task of doing ALL the research and the first draft of my 'local studies', History coursework! I sent him an email before he went away with a few questions, but I'm still not one hundred percent sure what to do!
I've chosen a local history site (a school) and have tried to conduct some basic research on the builiding, however, I am slightly confused about what it is I've got to research exactly. The question I must answer is ' Why was your chosen site built there in the first place'?
He sent me this email before he left:
Research in terms of actions of the council, actions of a group of people, one leading light
Now, what does he mean by this? Does he want me to find out why the council/groups of people wanted the school built there? I'm very unsure...
Please reply if you can help, I'm desperate!
