  11. Step 5 • Grouping the documents • Group the documents in at leastthree ways. • Think about… • How are some of the documents related? • What do they have in common? • You must do more than simply say they are old and new Olympic documents.

  12. Step 6 • Create your thesis • It must answer the question • It must address all parts of the question • It must not be vague or simply restate the question • It must be explicitly stated in the introduction or conclusion • It may appear as one sentence or as multiple sentences.
