The assignment below is your LAST big assignment for this class!!!!!! For the last week of school (June 8-11), I will just have you do an end-of-year survey. We will also have another mandatory class WebEx (next week, not this week).
Here is a recap of what we have covered during distance learning:
Week 1: Japanese American Internment in the U.S. during WWII
Week 2: Life on the Home Front during WWII and what life was like for many different groups in the U.S. during WWII
Week 3: America and the Holocaust
Week 4: The End of WWII and the Atomic Bombs
Week 5: The Civil Rights Movement (Key Leaders, Major Philosophies, the 4 "I's" of Oppression)
Week 6: The Civil Rights Movement through Film
Week 7: The COLD WAR
Week 8: Mini Research Projects 1960s-Early 2000s (The next TWO weeks)
For the next two weeks, you should be working on this assignment (see below) and any missing assignments to ensure that you earn a passing grade for the class AND learn some really amazing things about the country you live in!
The assignment below asks you to choose from a list of several major events list, do research on that topic, and complete some questions for each topic. The amount of events you choose to write about determines your grade (10 for an A+, 7 for a B+, 4 for a C+...for example).
There is an example "write-up" for the Friends TV Series but please note that your write-ups DO NOT have to be as long as the example!!!
This week's assignment is due by Friday, June 5th via CANVAS.
We will NOT have a WebEx meeting this week but we will have one next week!!! If you have ANY questions, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
