My first pass at this EE led me to this research question: In what way was the Middle Ages a period of progress and cultural development? Does this work as a RQ? The feedback I have received is that my paper is reading as too narrative. I am discussing the time period and it's labeling as an era of regression (between the Roman empire and the Renaissance), then speaking in detail all of the amazing developments that occurred during the time. Any suggestion on how to shift this topic to work for an EE?
