HIPP to Thesis

how do you get your HIPP to connect to the thesis? any examples?

Hi Kathy, Welcome!

In your analysis of the document’s (audience, pov, purpose, or historical context), that will support or refute your thesis in the opening paragraph.

Hope this helps!
Good luck tomorrow!

Here’s a sample of my APUSH DBQ on how slavery changed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The connection is on bold (my thesis was slavery persisted):

Slaves continued to be held in figurative shackles as well as their routines are tightly controlled from waking up to sleeping (Doc 5). As an African American slave, Bibb and people from his race remain oppressed and controlled by drills and expectations in plantations and cotton fields as escape was never a realistic option. His experiences show only a fraction of the inhumane treatment he receive as a consequence of the persistence of slavery between the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
