In this project, you will trace the development of a theme in American history from the Gilded Age through the twentieth-first century. Create a timeline in which you note between twenty and twenty-five events and individuals relating to this theme. How did the theme affect American society? How had the United States changed?
Choose one of the following themes:
Â· Native Americansâ€™ situation in the United States
Â· womenâ€™s roles in society
Â· environmental protection
Â· the development of technology
Â· economic expansion
Â· the changing role of the United States in foreign relations
There are one hundred points possible on this project. You will be responsible for:
Â· Key events that affected development of the theme. (20 points possible)
Â· Actions of key leaders and figures. (20 points possible)
Â· The importance and significance of each event and person in your timeline. (25 points possible)
Â· The impact of the theme you are discussing on American history. (25 points possible)
Â· Proper convention and presentation. Your timeline should be free of spelling errors. Use proper grammar, punctuation, and capitalization, as well as complete sentences if they are appropriate. The outline/layout you use is up to you, but the project must be clearly and logically organized. Items in your timeline should appear connected to demonstrate change over time, but they should not appear cluttered. The elements you use (which may include headings, different fonts, bullets, images, text, etc.) should be effectively integrated with white space to make your timeline easy to understand.
