Requirements for the Group Project:
1) With each topic, the groups will produce content similar to what has been created for the class as a whole. Essentially each group project will be uploaded as page(s) on Canvas that the rest of the class can explore. Utilizing your group research, interesting documents identified from the archives, and other tasks which may be appropriate to your topic, you should “tell” the story of your project. At a minimum, you will create a timeline with illustrations utilizing software which we will provide. In addition, data visualizations from archival materials might be appropriate. The group must demonstrate the use of two of the three archival research skills learned in this class (i.e. document analysis, data mapping, and data coding.)
2) The group will present its materials to the rest of the class during the last week of class. Each group is expected to present and answer questions about the topic during a full class period. The presentations may use the Canvas “page” space as the basis of its presentation or create a separate powerpoint.
Each group will present their project in-class on one of the three class periods this week. You are expected to attend all three class periods to support your fellow students. Each presentation should run no longer than 20 -25 minutes with time for questions and discussion with the entire class.
