Timeline of the Civil War – Prompt and Guidelines

Timeline of the Civil War – Prompt and Guidelines

Using PowerPoint, prepare an annotated timeline of the events that resulted in the Civil War. The timeline should be encompassed in 8-10 slides, with images and a 1-2 paragraph description for each entry. Sources you may consult are the textbook and the GMC library. Cite all sources in APA format in text and on a reference slide. When using images from the internet, you may use a free image site such as Wikimedia Commons.

Do not copy timeline events from the internet- your explanations should be written in your own words with cited references when applicable.

Grading criteria
Topic
Did not submit
0points
Topic, ideas or thesis are not stated, and it is difficult to find any meaning for the project, or many meanings are stuck in at random.
1points
Topic, ideas or thesis is stated, but the thinking is fuzzy, resulting in a disorganized focus. Topic is understood but unsupported.
2points
Topic, ideas or thesis is pretty clear for the intended audience, but needs sharpening. Interprets topic and shows an understanding of material
3points
Topic, ideas or thesis is clearly stated for the intended audience. Shows synthesis of topic. Presents main points/summary of information in an organized manner
4points
Content
Did not submit
0points
One idea maybe apparent in presentation-or one example, but nothing is developed. An obvious lack of effort or research is apparent.
1points
Timeline is fairly clear and follows topic and ideas, but tends to remain stuck at the abstract level. All “tell” and no “show.” Organization is disjointed and explanation of events lacks clarity enough to impede the meaning.
2points
Same as prior, but examples are not as vivid, and some of the points remain at the telling or abstract level. Some good examples of “show,” but the project overall is not consistent in presentation. Organization and structure may need help. A description is included for each entry but may need further development or refinement.
3points
Timeline is developed to “show,” that is, to be concrete and scenic with narrative rather than just “tell” with abstract exposition. Concrete examples, quotations, anecdotes, descriptions, images etc. are fully developed in effective proportion to support the ideas of the project. Organization and/or structure are clear and easy to follow. A 1-2 paragraph description for each entry thoroughly summarizes content.
4points
