• Illustrate attempts – both successful and less than successful – to react to those contextual changes
• Illustrate attempts – both successful and less than successful – to proactively address pending contextual changes
• Demonstrate the value of understanding the past (societal, institutional, programmatic) in choosing a course for the future
• Consider the use and value of public history in modern national discourse
• Document innovative models, approaches, partnerships
• Assess honestly and critically the failure of outdated models; suggests new approaches to common problems; and/or affirms the effectiveness of traditional tactics
