After perusing the website below, create a powerpoint presentation in either Microsoft Office, Keynote, or Presi about the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. The presentation must have at least 12-15 powerpoint slides (probably going to be much longer) and you must address the following criteria in order to get credit for the assignment.
Your presentation should NOT be an essay in PPT form. Each slide should have 4-6 bullet points that are succinct. Make every word count. (This is opposite of an essay). Ideally, each slide would have a picture or an image that would help you tell the story. Try to make each slide and every sentence tell a succint part of the story.
Your presentation should cover this information.
*A summary of the event ( maybe 2-3 slides): see the storyline part of the website or you can watch this short video. You can create a time line if this helps you
*Introduce the different historical characters (Who do we need to know in order to understand this story). You can break this down into different groups. Each historical character should their own slides. This section of the powerpoint you should have at least three slides or more towards the characters. Use the primary source on the Cornell University website to help you with constructing the information.
*Within your presentation You must use or reference at least three of the newspaper articles and you must use at least 3 photographs, and one of the oral histories from the research section.
*You should mention the trial or what happens after the fire.
*You should have a slide or that describes what lessons were learned from the fire? How has the Triangle Fire shaped the work place today. Again, here be very specific and make every word count.
*Finally, you should have a slide that how do we commemorate the fire today? Another words, why is it important that we remember this tragic event? Are there better ways we could honor or remember the women that died in this event?
I will grade you on the following criteria!
Is the presentation clear, succinct, and does it cover the event, the historical characters and does it examine gender construction.
Does the presentation balance information between primary source and secondary sources? Does the presentation use oral history, newspapers, and photographs to help understand this history?
Does the presentation do a good job of addressing how the fire changed the social, cultural, and political landscape and why it is important we study this part of early twentieth century history.
ONE RED FLAG: If you have paragraphs on each slide, that is going to bring your grade down. The purpose of this assignment is to help you say a lot, without saying a lot. See the tutorial on Blackboard.
The historical analysis assignment will make you think and write critically about class and gender in the early century century according to the Cornell University archive.This assignment illuminates these two important Student Learning Outcomes, critical thinking and confidence, and will hone your analytical skills in the professional or academic work place.
Your presentation should have a title, and your name…it should also be proofread before submitting on BB.
DONT DO A PPT JUST PUT IN Bullet points and I will make the PPT. Thank you
