CHC2D: History Graphic Timeline Assignment: Events Leading to WWII Materials: Blank Paper (8 ½ x 10 or 8 1/2 x 14) Instructions: For this part of the assignment, your goal will be to create a graphic timeline based on the information the class activity concerning the evolution of democracy. On your timeline, you will need to indicate: i) The date (year) and name of each of the events that lead up to World War Two ii) The key idea (or ideas) relating to the event (ie. Brief description) The key to creating an effective graphic timeline is to design an appropriate picture around which you can organize the necessary information. In the case of the steps to war, there are many pictures that may prove effective. For example, you might build your timeline around a picture of a road. If you chose to use a “road” as your organizing picture, the developments in lead up to war might become “milestones” or “signs” along the road. There are many other pictures that might also prove effective in terms of designing your timeline. For example, you may want to design your timeline around the construction of a building, the growth of a plant, an ascent up a mountain or traveling through time. The key to this assignment is to be creative and think of a picture that will help to reinforce the idea that your timeline deals with the “development of WWII”. In constructing your timeline, you may use computer graphics or you may rely on your own artistic creations. In either case, while this is not an assignment for art class, your work will in part be assessed for its artistic merit. More specifically, your creation will be evaluated based on the following criteria; creativity, evidence of understanding the stages in the development of democracy, accuracy of information, neatness, completeness, and the overall effectiveness of your design relative to the task that you have been assigned.
