Provide me tips on how to complete the change over time essay (which deals with changes and continuties over time).

I have to debate which events affected global trade systems the most (either political, economic, or social). I have to analyze how the spread of religions and the expansion of post-classical empires affected trade systems from 600-1450.

I chose Ghana, Mali, Bantu Migrations, and the Mongo conquests for political.

For social, i chose black death, feudalism in europe and japane, and guilds in europe.

For economic, i chose paper money, expansion of silk roads, trans-saharan routes, and indian ocean routes, and the mass production of porcelain and silk.

    Whenever I work with students who need to research and/or write something that deals with change of any kind, the best plan to start with is this:

    Be able to describe the person/character/situation at the beginning of the timespan you're dealing with.

    Then be able to describe the person (etc.) at the end of the timespan.

    Now tell about what brought about those changes.

    Clearly, you have quite a number of topics and lots of researching to do, but that is the way I'd organize my research.

    At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.

    ... and one to help you judge whether a particular website's information is worth your time:
