HIST 400 DVU Wk 6 Progressivism Influence on American Change Discussion
I’m studying for my History class and need an explanation.
This week, you’ll be continuing to engage and interact with history by creating an assignment that is appropriate for this class (act as if you are the professor). Please create an assignment that highlights the information and skills you think a college-level American history student needs at their disposal. You will need to determine whether you want your assignment to focus on social, political, intellectual, cultural, diplomatic, or economic history. Then you will create an assignment that requires students to demonstrate a mastery of that kind of history and how it differs from other kinds of history.
First: Choose what sort of history on which you’d like to focus.
Second: Decide on three skills your assignment will assess.
Third: Decide on the type of assignment you want to create (there are lots of interesting varieties of assignments, so do a bit of research and see what appeals to you! Also, consider for the type of history you’re focusing on what might be the best type of assignment—written, oral, presentation, creative, and so forth.)
Fourth: Develop a short grading rubric that demonstrates how you will assess the skills you chose in the second step.
Note: You DO NOT have to complete the assignment. Only create it.
Here are some resources that might be of use to you.
