Historical thinking skill identification

Does anyone have any tips on identifying which historical thinking skill the question wants us to write about?

Welcome @emilybeatty29_58790

You can use ANY historical thinking skill! Often, there is a phrase in the prompt that leads you to a comparative or CCOT or causation essay, but you get to choose how to write.

Historical thinking skills (and if you do BOTH parts, it’s even better for you):
Compare & contrast
Cause & effect
Changes & Continuities over time

Good luck today!
