does that impact how we write our thesis?

Change and continuity over time, comparison or causation. However, the way the exam is written now, there is usually no single way to answer a Free Response Question. One way may lend itself better but you won’t be penalized for talking about cause and effect if another person writes about change and continuity over time.
