A performance is a live, dramatic presentation of your topic's significance in history.  A performance should be a scripted portrayal based on research of your chosen topic.

Your script should be structured on a thesis statement, supporting statements, and a conclusion. Your performance should have dramatic appeal, but not at the expense of historical information. A performance is a dramatic portrayal of your topic’s significance in history and must be original in production.

Some questions to consider:

• Do I enjoy being in front of an audience?
• Can my topic can be explained in less than 10 minutes using speech and dialogue?
• Would I be able to write a script and come up with props and costumes?
