Affiliate National 2020 Theme: Breaking Barriers in History DEFINING BARRIER Barrier: Something material that blocks or is

intended to block passage. What comes to your mind when you think of physical barriers? Why are barriers built in the first place? Who builds them and what do they hope to accomplish?

DEFINING BARRIER Barrier: A natural formation or structure that prevents or hinders movement or action. What natural barriers come to mind that made movement by people difficult? How did people come up with ways to break or hurdle barriers

like rivers, mountains, oceans, deserts, and jungles? How did breaking natural barriers influence the development of a community? DEFINING BARRIER Barrier: Something immaterial that impedes or separates.

Can ideas be barriers? In what ways might legislation create or break barriers? How did legal decisions decide questions about social or racial barriers? ARE ALL BARRIERS NEGATIVE?

politics, or art? What is the historical context of the barrier? What were attitudes toward the barrier? Was the barrier broken by an individual or a group?

without saying why the legacy is important Too much competition!

Take a new angle Look for someone lesser known from the

same era Hero stories Remember to tell a balanced version of

events Avoid sensationalism Modern topics OHD topics should be 20 years old

Start with the modern topic and look for its historical counterpart CONNECTING TO THE THEME
