AMERICAN HISTORY AFTER 1865
After the Civil War, the United States became a much more industrialized society. Between 1865 and 1920, industrialization improved American life in many ways. However, industrialization also created problems for American society. Consider events that took place during this time period and ways in which industrialization affected the United States between 1865 and 1920 (do NOT go beyond 1920).
Create a 10-15 slide powerpoint presentation (the title slide and reference slides do NOT count toward the required slide total). Your presentation will focus on social, economic, and political changes brought about by industrialization.
- 10-15 slides
- Your presentation must include primary images (sourced either below the image or in the Speaker Notes of the slide), bullet points and headings on slides, and explanation of those bullet points and headings in the Speaker Notes. DO NOT just write paragraphs on the actual slides. Slides should contain the bulleted points and headings of main ideas etc., but all explanation should be in the Speaker notes and properly cited.
- Sources: You must use 3 source IN ADDITION to the textbook – so four sources are required in total. (counting the textbook). These are content sources and do not count where you got your images, although you should cite your images as well. So you will have 4 content sources and also your image sources.
Please Organize your presentation as follows:
Slide 1: Title Slide
Slide 2: Introduction Slide (like an intro in a written paper). It must contain a thesis statement.
Next section (will be multiple slides): Economic changes caused by Industrialization (at least 3)
Next section (will be multiple slides): Social changes caused by Industrialization (at least 3)
Next section (will be multiple slides): Political changes caused by Industrialization (at least 3)
Conclusion slide: wrap up the entire presentation and restate the thesis in another way
References slide: (clearly separate content references and Image sources
