Project #52404 - US History Slide Show Presintation

HIST110: Week Five

Final Presentation Requirements

 

Select a historical “buzz word” from the following list: American, democracy, freedom, individuality, equality, rights, truth, independence, people (as in “We, the People”), and the United States.  If other words come to mind, instructor approval is required before embarking on the project.

 

Answer the questions below in the presentation:

 

·         What is the etymology of the word?  Is it Latin or Greek, for example?  This is the starting point for your analysis.

·         What is the historical definition of the word or words in the United States?  By this I mean locate a primary source document which uses this word and defines it.  If guidance is needed here, please ask.  Note that you will need to discuss the connotation of the word.

·         What is the contemporary definition of the word or words?  Again, locate primary or secondary political sources that define these sources.  Note that you will need to discuss the connotation of the word.

·         What historical events or figures altered the definition throughout time?  How did they alter the definition?  Why is this significant?  You must have an event or person from each of the following time blocks:

o   Beginning to 1787

o   1787 to 1865

o   1865 to 1945

o   1945 to present

            You need at least five (5) examples, so you will need to double-up in one time frame.

 

The presentation requirements are as follows:

 

·         You must use a presentation software in order to convey this information.  It must be 15 to 20 slides.

·         Speakers’ notes are not required.

·         Project should have minimal to no spelling, mechanics, or grammatical errors in the presentation.

 

·         Reading from the slides is not acceptable, nor is reading verbatim from a prepared speech.  Eye contact and group interaction is necessary and encouraged.
