Part 1: Brainstorming
Instrucons: Brainstorm your thoughts on each queson in preparaon for creang an outline of your mulmedia presentaon, including specic examples as
appropriate.
State three historical
lenses that could be
applied to your topic
and explain how each
lens can be applied.
Describe how one of the
lenses you just
iden'ed might change
how you approach
researching your topic,
thus a)ecng the
historical narrave.
Discuss the conclusions
you can draw from
thinking about how
history is told. Consider
how historians are
persuaded by their own
biases, movaons, and
in,uences of their me.
Describe how your
research of a historical
topic can help you
understand
contemporary issues in
our lives, and try to list
at least two related
contemporary issues
A.er taking this course,
what is your opinion
about the statement
“history repeats itself”?
Do you think this is
accurate? What
informaon from the
course guides you to
this conclusion?
Discuss your obligaon
as a cizen of your
society to understand
the history behind
issues that impact you
every day. (Note that
this does not speci'cally
have to relate to your
topic).

the Declaration of
Independence socially

Looking through a
polical lens of the US
Constuon would
change the historical
context. This would
bring to the frontline the
di&erences between
local and federal
government amongst
the new states when
viewing through the
polical lens. Under the
arcles of confederaon
there was a large
deviaon between

Any event in history and
how it is told can draw
lots of di&erent
conclusions. To me
historians can formulate
theories to t the
evidence instead of
using facts to t the
evidence. There would
be a lot less biases if
historians only viewed
direct facts related to an
even and not someone’s
opinion on the event
being researched. I also
think that the me
As we know the US
Constuon has not
changed much over the
last 200 years. If it has
changed it changed for
the be,er. An especially
important part of the US

History tends to repeat
itself. As memory fades,
events from the past can
become events of the
present.
As a United States
cizen, I feel as though it
is my commitment to be
a patriot to my country.
It is important to
studying history so we
can understand our past
which in turn allows us
to understand our
present and future.
Also, it allows us to have
appreciaon of our
cultures.

This slide will have 3 subtopics with the lenses

Social Lens This lens focuses on people and their interacons with
others. It explores areas of ethnicity, class, and gender.

Economic Lens This lens focuses on people and their interacons with
others. It explores areas of ethnicity, class, and gender.
Examining the acons and behaviors of how di&erent groups
of people interact with each other and within their own
group. It provides historians with a great deal of insight into
the past.
Adding a picture
Polical Lens Not focusing solely on policians and governments, the
polical lens looks at the relaonship of those who have
power and those who do not. Historians using a "polical
lens" seek answers about the ways in which legislaon and
law in2uence the lives of individuals.

Instrucons: Create a plan for your presentaon. You will need to create 10 to 12 slides that respond to the crical elements in the Project 3 Rubric. (If you are
using Microso> Word, your mulmedia presentaon should be 4 to 5 pages long.) The slide tle suggesons are provided to help you develop your presentaon.
The eld for slide text is a place for you to develop your ideas for your presentaon’s content, drawing from Part 1. The eld for slide visuals and audio ideas is a
place to develop ideas for visuals and audio elements that can enhance your presentaon and engage your audience. As you develop your ideas, you are
