"The Favorite Thing" Timeline Project
BACKGROUND: Students have already done preliminary research and data collection regarding their selected "Favorite Thing." This assignment takes this research further, putting information regarding the Favorite Thing into an attractive TIMELINE format.
ASSIGNMENT: This assignment will involve students creating a TIMELINE that illustrates the history of their FAVORITE THING, as researched in the paper at the start of the quarter. Students will use the TIMELINE format to ILLUSTRATE all of the important changes and dates in their FAVORITE THING, from the very beginnings of the THING to the present day.
This will require that you sign up for a free account, which you can do using your school Gmail address. Use your email address as your username and email, I recommend using your school network password (birthday) as your password to the site. MR. B. CANNOT RECOVER THIS INFORMATION FOR YOU, IF YOU FORGET IT!. As a last resort, the website does have a password recovery system, if necessary.
We do not have a CLASS CODE for this project, just leave that space blank when you register!
LEARNING THE MATERIAL: As often happens when given a project to complete in the workplace, you do not have a lot of instruction on how to use this timeline creator. You will need to review THIS LINK FOR HELP FROM TIKI-TOKI.COM (SCROLL DOWN TO THE "CREATING A TIMELINE" and "CREATING A STORY" SECTIONS)! This is called "Using Your Resources." You are working with an online resource, so you will need to use their documentation to figure out how to complete your tasks.
NEED A SAMPLE? Here is Mr. B.'s History of Freshman Technology Timeline. You saw this as a Bellringer at the start of this project. Yours should look similar in scope and detail!
SUBMISSION OF PROJECT: Make sure that you EMAIL Mr. B. the LINK for your timeline (not the EDITING LINK, but actual TIMELINE LINK) when you are done. This timeline is due by WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28th, 2018.
GRADING: This project will be worth a total of 100 points. 50 points for proper inclusion of all required elements listed above. 50 points for quality of the information related in the timeline.
