Unit VI Outline

This course has introduced and assessed many noteworthy figures related to the continuing buildup of the United States

and its place within the world and globalization during the last 140 years. For this assignment, you will choose a

noteworthy civil rights leader from the mid-20th century to the present. Your selection may be taken from speakers or

religious, economic, or social leaders. You may not use any U.S. President. This assignment is open to any reform

discussed in this course (e.g., creed, race, age, status, or gender).

Prepare an outline of how you would choose to communicate that figure’s relevance to today. This is not a biography.

Your argument should highlight how society remembers him or her now.

For this assignment, you will be creating a one-page outline (minimum of 300 words) about your chosen figure. If you

choose, this could be used to help write your transcript for the Unit VII assignment described below. Submit your outline in

this unit. It is suggested, though not required, that you include potential sources.

The goal of this assignment is to prepare you for the Unit VII assignment described below. However, it is not required that

you use the same person from your Unit VI Outline for the Unit VII Scholarly Activity. If you do intend to use this outline in

Unit VII, it is highly advised that you review the instructions below and prepare with that assignment in mind.

Unit VII Scholarly Activity

This course has introduced and assessed many noteworthy figures related to the continuing buildup of the United States

and its place within the world and globalization during the last 140 years. For this assignment, you will choose a

noteworthy civil rights leader from the mid-20th century to the present. Your selection may be chosen from speakers or

religious, economic, or social leaders. You may not use any U.S. President. This assignment is open to any reform

discussed in this course (including, but not limited to, creed, race, age, status, or gender).

This is not a biography. Your argument should highlight how society remembers him or her now.

The style of project is a multimedia presentation with both audio and video components; however, the medium is up to

you. Examples may include a speech, self-guided PowerPoint presentation, or video. Creativity and effort will impact your

final grade for this assignment.

Your submission will be graded on the following:

· preparation and submission of a two-page reflection, ideally based on the outline assignment from Unit VI;

· creation and submission of a visual presentation with your reflection as an audio transcript;

· use of a minimum two sources that can be found in the Online Library (at least one from the American History and

Life database);

· proper APA citations and references for sources used;

· length within three to five minutes (in the case of PowerPoint, slides and audio should progress and stop

automatically like a taped presentation); and

· content accuracy and avoidance of anachronism.

Many options are available for creating this assignment. A few options are listed below.
