Historical Research: Framing Research Questions

Consult the guide, "Ethnic and Cultural Groups Recorded by the WPA in Florida." What else would you like to know about the ethnic and cultural groups in Florida? For example, reading this information might cause you to wonder if the same ethnic and cultural groups are identifiable in Florida today. You might wander how these ethnic communities interacted with one another; for example, how did the Cubans, Italians, and African Americans in Ybor City interact? Conduct research to answer your question. Pool the information with that gathered by other students in your class. How could your class add to the information in "Ethnic and Cultural Groups Recorded by the WPA in Florida"?
