ClioVis Project (Due December 10, 2020)
Students will create a ClioVis digital timeline on a specific topic in U.S. History using a minimum of 5 primary sources and 5 secondary sources (10 total). Each source will represent a specific event in the timeline; this will include 9 connections (see ClioVis Videos for examples) between the events. Students can use a maximum of 3 primary sources from our workshops. All sources will have to be reference cited in Chicago Style. 5 points will be deducted for each infraction on grammar, punctuation, incomplete or incorrect citation notes, and event and connection requirements, as seen below.
