Community College Life During the Great Depression Paper and Pinterest Page A Day in life post
this post, you’re first going to research and create a Pinterest page portraying daily life of a person living during a time and place covered by this course. The time and place should be as specific as possible. Note – for History 102 or 112, you cannot go past the 1960s!
NOTES: Your pins must be sites, images, video, and music YOU find. You may not use someone else’s existing pin. . Your page should have pins (videos, pictures, links to pages) about:
• Housing and/or architecture
• Entertainment, leisure activities, and art
• And religion and/or politics and government.
You might also want pins about medicine, childhood and education, and other aspects of life! In a monarchy or empire, very few people participated in government, so you can focus more on religion. In a time period like Colonial America, both would be appropriate (and they are often connected up through the Enlightenment!).
• Pin at least 2 videos
• Pin at least 4 images
• Pin at least 4 websites
• Pin at least 2 primary sources
But you need at least two pins per category. This is overall, not per category. Again, you must create your pins from scratch, not pin something already on someone else’s board! Pins others created will show their name and date they posted it and you will not receive credit for those! When you create your pins, make sure you edit them to add a four sentences comment to each one that:
• Briefly summarizes the resource
• Explains whether it is scholarly or popular
• Explains what sources the author used if it is a secondary source or what type of source it IS if it is a primary source.
• And what you learned from it.
Then you will do a post here in Blackboard. The post will sum up what you’ve learned about daily life in your chosen time and place in the past and answer the following questions in ¾-1 page:
• Most important things in daily life to a person living then
• Similarities and differences between then and now
• Sources that exist for us to be able to learn about daily life in the past.
There will be another handout in Blackboard with instructions and links to videos on how to use Pinterest. Your account MUST use your real name OR your chosen pseudonym ( MY chosen Pseudonym is GRANDEUR)
https://www.pinterest.com/trauthhistory/laura-trauth/ ( EXAMPLE)
Pinterest account created with your real name (or the pseudonym you choose in Week 1).
Pinterest board created.
Categories created within the board for 1. clothing, 2. food, 3. housing, community, and/or architecture, 4. entertainment, leisure activities and/or art, 5. work, And 6. religion and/or politics and government.
At least two pins added per category that include at least two videos, four images, four websites, and two primary source documents.
Comment added to each pin that summarizes the resource, explains whether it is scholarly or popular, explains what sources the author used if it is a secondary source or what type of source it IS if it is a primary source, and explains what you learned from it.
¾ to 1 page post created analyzing (not describing) your board that considers the most important things in daily life to a person living then, similarities and differences between then and now, and the sources that exist for us to be able to learn about daily life in the past.
Two replies done to other posts that show you read/watched the pins on their boards.
