Historical Narrative Project ; 9th Grade Spring semester Ms. Adrion Narrative Writing Project Requirements for Social Studies This is DUE MAY 24th NO LATE ACCEPTANCES: Meet with me at 37.5 minutes to proof and edit your work. Directions: I know that you are all excited to be working on your historical narrative project for our Global History class. You are to place yourself within your historical person’s life. One of the many ways in which we study history is to find primary sources. Primary sources are sources of information that are actually from the time period you are studying examples would be a diary, journal entry, eyewitness account. Primary sources can be physical objects from that time period or individuals who lived during that time. Secondary Sources are sources of information that were written about that person, encyclopedia, textbook, written by historians, sociologists, anthropologists, economists and psychologists. You are to research the person you were assigned: Make an outline or use index cards to answer the following questions. This will give you the background knowledge of your person through research. This is to be collected as part of your grade. Your research can be bullet pointed or outline. Bibliography: use at least three sources and one MUST BE A BOOK. Years of birth and death Region , city, continent of person’s life Early family life, Education, Siblings, Marriage Accomplishments Their affect on history and or their society Matching today’s problems in history ( Connect the issues of your historical person to our lives today) Project Suggestions: 1) You may construct a digital documentary ( can be powerpoint) : You can use video, pictures, images, cartoons with your personal narrative of your life. Digital documentaries are short digital movies that contain a montage of images, text or video accompanied by a narration done in the student’s voice. Because much of history occurred before the invention of movies and television, many of the primary sources available are photographs, artwork, and documents. Therefore students typically add motion across these otherwise static still images (often called the Ken Burns effect) to highlight specific aspects of the visuals. Information about how to make digital documentaries can be found on The Digital Director’s Guild site (www.ddguild.org) and on the University of Houston College of Education site (www.coe.uh.edu/digital-storytelling). 2) Make a scrapbook : You may write two poems each poem is to be 1 page minimum total and 1 page each as the written component, and 2-4 pages of pictures, visuals of this person’s life.
