This assignment is an informal, free writing in the first person - writing about a particular event/development that occurred within the places and periods we cover in our course. You will be writing an understanding of the event, AS IF you lived the event yourself, and you, speaking as it were from the grave, are telling your modern audience about it --- how it felt, why it felt the way it did. Help us to understand what the event felt like to you, living when you lived--- help us to understand YOU and the event. You will submit the written assignment in the Now and Then Discussion Board here, and will respond to three posts written by your fellow students. Assignment Requirements: Choose an event/development within the periods covered in our course (a different topic than your research paper) A minimum of 250 words Incorporate the course textbook or an academic source from the Auraria Library Database that references your topic in your essay and include citations for the source at the end of your essay Respond to a minimum of three posts by your fellow students within one-week of the due date, with thoughtful questions and comments (minimum of 4 sentences) on their essays and their portrayal of the events that they covered.
