Civil Rights Timeline – 14 and American Civil Rights Movement

This assignment is due at the end of our unit study on 14 and the American Civil Rights Movement.  This assignment is worth 100 points.  You must turn in both your working copy and final copy of your  timeline.  

Please go here for a PDF copy of our American Civil Rights Movement Timeline.  Go here for Word doc copy of the timeline.  To view a similar TL assignment –  go to Life of Nelson Mandela

In doing the assignment outlined below, you may choose a number of routes…

  • Download the Word doc  of TL and actually type text onto it.
  • Print out your own PDF  of the TL, write date & line.  Tape summaries.
  • or  use the hard copy of the TL, I’ve provided you to do the same above.
  • three sentences per post.
  • If your handwriting is illegible you will be marked down…  
  • Consider typing it.

Purpose of the  Timeline. – The purpose of this part of the assignment is to have a chronological  history of the American Civil Rights movement  in front of you throughout our audio-visual study.  While we watch and listen and learn, add to your timeline.  Start each day by updating your timeline from notes taken the previous day.  If you do that you’ll stay ahead of the process.  Otherwise it could get a bit overwhelming.  You’ll need a three sentence description of each entry (person / place / thing / date).  See my examples on linked to TL.  That description doesn’t need to be fully written until due date.  However, the individual or date should be noted.  Don’t forget, we will be quizzing regularly throughout this study – so take notes accordingly.

Requirement – 20 entries on your Timeline.  Place twenty events on your TL.  You must log (14, Plessy, Brown, Selma).  Three sentences per post.  After that its up to you.  It’s going to get crowded. That’s OK.  And that’s why you are turning in a final & re-worked copy.  Make sure that you draw lines to connect your (person / place / thing / date) to the timeline so that your link to the line stays chronological.  Take a look at the Nelson Mandela Timeline example created by Nicole Depender (c/o 2014).  This is the quality of effort you should shoot for.  You may not place numbers on the line with explanations at another location.  And it must be legible – neatness will count – if you have bad handwriting type it.  So have it –  and ask away as we move through our study of 14 and the American Civil Rights Movement.
