How to create an Annotated Timeline:
- Design and format your timeline. The typical annotated timeline has the date aligned on the left and the annotation directly next to it, usually separated by a colon or dash. If you are inventive and a whiz with the computer go for it and show me something special but remember you need the information, no matter how fancy you get.
- Choose persons and events that are the most vital to understanding your this period of time in American history. The four to five most important events or persons during this period is what you will need and reasons that you believe them to be the most important.
- Write your annotation. For each event and/or person include information such as the names of the people involved, the actions that occurred and their significance. Annotations should be relatively brief. A single sentence can suffice. The purpose of an annotated timeline is to condense information into small, manageable chunks.
- Display your information in a consistent manner. You will continue to add each module period to one Timeline document building to a 10 period timeline at Module 10, submitting it for each module/period as you go through this course.
