What about Reconstruction?
Hopefully the theme you’ve picked up on in this class is that this ancient stuff that happened a long long time ago is still having a direct impact on your life. For the final, I want you to show me 3 ways in which the events covered in this class are impacting your life. Pick 3 different events and show how each one affects your life (not life in general- yours specifically).
Rules/Guidelines/Restrictions/Blah Blah Blah
1. I don’t have a required format. You can write a paper if you want, make a slideshow, record a song, create some art, dress up with a green screen and re-enact something, sky is the limit. However- I need some details, so like drawing me some stick figures and calling it a day is probably not going to be clear enough.
2. You need to be specific. For example, saying: “Reconstruction led to Black Lives Matter” is true but not specific enough to get your a good grade. What about Reconstruction? How did it lead to it? How does BLM affect your life? (This is an example only- you don’t have to use this one).
It is worth 100 points. Make sure what you turn in measure up to that.
