Timeline Project 

After reviewing the Unit VII materials, you should be  familiar with some      events that shaped Western Expansion and the Antebellum  South. Take a look at     the 1793-1857 timeline here. For this assignment, you will pick one   of the    events  identified on the timeline and discuss how that event prompted a   change  in     national philosophies or ideals. In addition to discussing a    specific  event     from  the timeline, you will also want to take into    consideration  how the     nation’s  views had evolved to the point of the event   you  choose.   Incorporating  ideas and  related concepts from previous units   may help  you    develop your  ideas.  Below are  the steps you will need to  take  in order to     successfully  complete  this  assignment. 

Step 1: Choose an  event. 

Choose an event from the timeline above that interests you  the most. Your      research will surround this event, so it is important to think  about what you     want to learn more about. 

Step 2: Conduct  research. 

Conduct research around  the event you chose. For this  assignment, you are     required to utilize at least  one source from the CSU Online  Library. Your      source can either revolve around  the event you chose or it can  focus on the      philosophies and ideals before/after  your event, whichever supports  your      writing more. Note that you may not find an  article specifically addressing       both the event you chose and the philosophies  surrounding it; in most cases,      you  will need to use your critical thinking  skills to infer the   information.    You may  use more sources if you would like,  but those sources   cannot include    Wikipedia,,, or  other   encyclopedias.

Step 3: Plan  and reflect. 

Reflect on the change in American life before and  after  the event you      chose. Once you have completed your research, you should  sit back  to think      about what it means to see if you notice any trends and to  have a  better      sense  of what you want to convey in your writing. Although it is  not       required, you  may want to develop a short outline to help you organize your       thoughts and  ideas. Use some of the following prompts to help guide  you:  

  • Ask               yourself about how historical figures and  groups                    related to your         event       were shaped by this time period    and                  environment. 
  • Ask               yourself how the lives of the people  around before and                    after the         event       were impacted.              
  • Ask               yourself what qualities, ideals, and philosophies you                    would most         like to       emphasize, and make sure the    facts       that     you       present          support it. 
  • Find               the perfect anecdote to demonstrate these                        qualities. 

Step 4: Write your  assignment. 

Your final assignment should  include a title page, a  minimum of two pages     of content, and a reference page.  As you are writing, be  sure to keep the      following in mind: 

  • The               introduction should engage the reader and clearly                    present a         summary of       the main points that clarify your        point   of           view. The         introduction should       also    include     a thesis         statement.       
  • The               quality of your writing should demonstrate critical                    thinking. 
  •  Organization               should clearly present points arranged to                     illustrate your opening               points.        
  • Writing                should be clear and concise with no spelling,                    grammatical, or                punctuation errors.        
  • You               must utilize at least one source  from the CSU Online                    Library. 
  • APA               formatting  guidelines should be used for this                            assignment.
