The big book of abc history project

The Big Book of ABC’s

The students will create an American History after 1877:  ABC book. This will be a collaborative effort for the class as a whole.

We are going to collectively make an ABC book explaining 26 of the most important concepts of 19th– and 20th– century America.

The format is simple. “A is for ______, B is for _________” etc.

Students must submit a list, in order of preference (up to three events/concepts), of which ABC book concept they would like to submit. The student must also submit a 250-word essay (“Persuasive Paragraphs,” in the discussion worth 15 points) as to why they are particularly suited to their first choice.

There are five themes which you can choose from:  Politics/Military, Culture, The Bad and the Sad, The Underrepresented, and American Technology and Business.
