The class project will be a short paper (no more than 5pp) on the global protest

The class project will be a short paper (no more than 5pp) on the global protests of 1968, analyzing political unrest in one country and connecting it to broader events taking place in other countries around the world.
You can choose any country that witnessed protests in 1968, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO: France, Italy, Canada, Denmark, Yugoslavia, Uruguay, Germany, USSR, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Jamaica, Mexico, Senegal, China, Brazil, Nigeria, Pakistan, Ireland and/or England, Italy, Poland, Spain, and the University of Connecticut in the United States.
In order to write this paper you will identify a country of interest, primary sources such as government documents, newspaper articles, visual images, and other materials, and put these in conversation with at least one scholarly article to develop your argument about how the protests in your country fit in to what scholars now call the “global protests of 1968.”
In a paper of from 1250-1500 words (roughly 4-5 pages) you will put into conversation primary sources (evidence produced at the time in 1968) and secondary sources (articles or maybe a book written about the events by scholars). These primary sources can consist of government documents, newspaper articles, images, art, music, or personal accounts.

How do you think Americans should remember Andrew Jackson?

Andrew Jackson continues to be a hotly contested character in American history. Some see his use of the veto and actions towards South Carolina as evidence of true executive power, American manliness, and get things done despite Congress. Others see his use of the veto and removal of Cherokee Indians as evidence of him as a bully and power-hungry. How do you think Americans should remember Andrew Jackson? What should be taught about him in public schools? How do we reconcile the memory of a person who seems to do such good and such horrible things all in the same presidency?
The guidelines for this assignment are:
response must be two well-developed paragraphs of a minimum of five sentences each.
Your complete word count on this assignment must be at least 250 words.
You must ONLY use the GMC library, online learning resources, or the course textbook.

Learning Goals: Through this project, we will experience firsthand how the past

Learning Goals: Through this project, we will experience firsthand how the past shapes the present as we create interesting, personally meaningful research projects based on a location of your choice within close proximity. We will become more personally invested in our learning experience as we actively practice and apply historical thinking, engage with multiple perspectives and think critically about how historical narratives are created, and reflect on our own experiences along the way.
Directions: For your project, you will select 1 place of interest in San Diego County to investigate.
1) Reflect on what you previously knew/understood about the location and why you selected the location. ( what i understood was he was looking for the trade with china but ended up finding the kumaya, and that he made the traveling at seas way easier for future expeditions. i chose this place because it was one of the places i grew up around, (feel free to add more)
2) Research and provide a thorough overview of the location and its historical significance
3) use historical context from our textbook to support your analysis ( book is called An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States ) use as one of the sources

Prior to beginning your research, consider why you selected this particular location, and what did you previously know about the location? What is the history of the location? What significance does this location have to Native Americans or in connection to our class? How is the history of the location presented (consider the tone, word choice, and from what perspectives)? Where is the historical information showcased, and what sources are used to present the information? How accessible is the historical information to the public? Is there anything missing from the historical narrative of the location – if so, what would you do to showcase the space’s history differently? What is the location like today? How does your experience of the location or your research connect to the “Danger of a Single Story”? How does your experience/research connect to one of the topics covered in Modules 1-4? How does your experience/research connect to specific examples or events from our textbook? How does your experience/research connect to at least 3 of our key terms? Lastly, how did your research change your experience/connection/understanding/appreciation of the location?

You may use PowerPoint, Video, Presi, TikTok, Podcast, Essay, or any creative format you prefer. There is no length requirement, as long as your project clearly addresses all parts of the prompt.
