HIS 112 - 20th Century U.S. History Prof. DuBose: HISTORY TIMELINES

Timeline of Events (10 points)

Timeline of Events

  (10 individual points)

Construct a timeline of 10 major events for your topic. Your 10 events should be important moments for your topic (birth / start, death / end, major changes etc.) Be sure to include a couple of (2-3) sentences for each event explaining its significance. Include a list of sources you consulted for your information including the addresses if web sites you use. If you are consulting websites make sure they are reliable sources (try to stick to .gov, edu, .org sources)

Internet Resources

On the web you will find timelines and chronologies complied by museums, documentary/television productions, educational and historic organizations. 

You might do the following Google Search:



e.g. Women's History Timeline; 20th Century Student Protest Chronology

Important!: There are many well meaning enthusiast sites on the web. In particular, there has also been an explosion of infographic and meme-type content designed to amuse and entertain that may be inaccurate. You must verify any information you find with a reliable source.
