Love letters to the next generation

Step by Step Directions and Requirements 

1. Figure out what format you would like to use in your love letter 2. Consider what vision and message you would like to convey to your audience (who is your audience?)  You can either focus on a group of people or an idea/theme. For example, a vision (dream) could be of a more equitable American society for women. How has this struggle for equality and independence been fought, is being fought and your hope for the future?  3. What sources/evidence will support the message in your love letter to the next generation? 4. You will have to prioritize information here. This is not covering all that you learned in this class, rather one thread that mattered to you. 5. Your Love Letter to the Next Generation should include a mixture of artifacts. Artifacts can be primary and secondary sources, documents, images, maps, graphs, videos, songs, sections of podcasts, etc.  If you add videos, songs, podcasts (please hyperlink them). 6. The historical narrative should include 3 to 4 primary sources (primary sources are artifacts that are created during the time period under study) from different time periods to support your interpretation.  7. In terms of length, you should be aiming for approximately 5 to 6 pages long (double spaced, 1-inch margin, 12 point font).  Remember, you will be adding your images, primary sources, and other artifacts right to your letter. For example, think of how I construct the weekly “Framing the Historical Conversations” or the “Weekly Check-Ins” with images, links, songs, and text. 8. In your conclusion, please consider what your vision is for America and how it has been shaped by our history.  9. Cite your sources from the course materials in a Work Cited Page
