Portfolio Project

   
Discussion Forum
The Civil War legally ended slavery and brought in the Era of Reconstruction. Reconstruction is an example of the notion that it was easier to change political institutions than cultural assumptions related to slavery. Discuss how Reconstruction reflects the nation’s attempt to promote justice and healing. Discuss specific policies of the state and federal governments relating to the end of slavery and the new social status of many former slaves, as well as how society accepted and implemented (or failed to accept and implement) those changes. 

Historical Perspective (essay)
For the final Portfolio Project, you will write a paper about a person or an event in a period of U.S. history up to Reconstruction that is relevant to your major area of study or of interest to you. You will write about this person or event from the perspective of another historical personality who lived at the same time as the person or event you are going to describe.
For your historical personality, try to select someone from an under-represented population (examples of possible perspectives include that of Anne Hutchinson, Pocahontas, or Sojourner Truth). This analysis is to make you think about how events/people’s actions were interpreted at the time.
There are three Portfolio Project Milestones due in Modules 2, 4, and 7. Visit each Module folder for full details on those assignments.

From your historical person’s perspective, provide a thorough summary of the person or event you’ve chosen to write about, including the incidents that took place and any key individuals involved or affected.
Address the general importance of the person or event in the context of U.S. history.
Now, explain specifically how the person or event changed “your” daily life—“you” being the historical persona you have adopted.
Think long-term: How will the person or the event you are describing make a long-term impact in the lives of people who are in the under-represented group to which your historical person/perspective belongs
