The “Somebody-Wanted-But-So” chart is an excellent way to summarize important information from history. In it, you identify a person or group of people, their goal, need, or want, what conflict of interest stood in the way, and the outcome. This strategy works great because history depends on the needs, wants, and actions of humans.
