Instructions for ED 213 Comparative Timeline

For this course students will be asked to create a comparative timeline including events from

Georgia history as well as from US history. Students may work with 1 partner on their timeline.

The timeline should be created in an electronic format, but the program or website used is the

choice of the student. Students may choose which events in Georgia and US history they wish to

include, but their choices must be justified. Each event in Georgia history should be

accompanied by a paragraph annotation describing the event and why the student considers it to

be important to Georgia history. This is an ongoing assignment through the course session

which will be completed and presented to the class during the final week.

The requirements for the timeline are as follows:

Timelines should include no fewer than 25 events from Georgia history, each of which

should be paired with a related contemporaneous event from US history. The two events

do not have to have happened on the same day, but should be reasonably close in time.

Each Georgia history event should be accompanied by an annotation of approximately 1

paragraph containing a very brief description of the event along with a justification for

why that event was included.

US history events do not need to be annotated, but should be related in some manner to

the Georgia event with which they are paired (e.g. Battle of Atlanta (GA) and Siege of

Petersburg, VA (US)).

The events should be spread out over all of Georgia history. Prehistoric events should

not be included. For example, the student may wish to include 2 events from the

Colonial Era, 2 events from the Antebellum Era, 3 events from the Civil War Era, 2

events from Reconstruction, and so on. Actual numbers and choices of events are up to

the student.

The timeline should be submitted in electronic format. The program or website used is up

to the choice of the student.

Some suggested electronic formats are:

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Office Powerpoint
