You need to create a thesis and support it with a sources from the Primary Source Boards.
Your thesis should talk about why and how an event or trend occurred in U.S. History, within the era we've been studying. It must have a point of view and be arguable (that is, someone else could argue it's not true). An interpretive thesis takes a stand, and uses the primary sources as evidence to prove it.
X happened because Y happened.
Although most people believe X, closer examination of the evidence indicates Y.
During this era people experience X, because of Y.
