imeline ExerciseTimeline Exercise Instructions
·To highlight some of the most important events in Western Civilization from the Fall of Rome through the beginning of the modern era.
·To provide a rationale explaining the significance of each event or item chosen.
·To synthesize and review what you have learned from the second half of the course.
·To provide a visual aid of the history of Western Civilization.
There are 2 distinct parts to this assignment, which means that you will have 2 documents to submit.
Part 1: The Timeline
1.Use Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint to create the timeline on your computer (See instructions below).
2.Make sure that the timeline shows chronological scale, as in the example provided. Notice that not all the examples in the tutorials below offer chronological scale, so use the tutorials as tools for creation; but make sure that you offer clear chronological scale on your final timeline.
3.The timeline must include the following events. Make sure you also include the correct dates for each of the 3. You can find the dates for each in the textbook.
a.Fall of Rome
b.Babylonian Captivity of the Church
c.Defeat of the Spanish Armada
4.Select at least 5 additional items to include in your timeline.
a.Do not include any dates before the Fall of Rome.
b.You may include 1 event that is not specifically Western, but you need to clarify how it is significant to the development of the West in your rationale. See the example below in Part 2 for details.
c.Do not include any dates after the defeat of the Spanish Armada.
5.Note that, because all events on the timeline will occur “In the Year of Our Lord” (or AD), it is not necessary to use the BC or AD designations.
6.Choose events, people, or developments that are significant for understanding the development of Western Civilization.
7.Make sure the timeline has a discernible chronological scale indicating the relative passage of time. It should also be visually attractive and professional enough to be used for a presentation in a small-group setting. See the example timeline provided.
8.Include your full name and course section number somewhere on the timeline.
Creating a Timeline on the Computer:
You may use the following links to learn techniquesforcreating timelines using Microsoft Word or Excel, or you may choose to create your timeline in a PowerPoint presentation.
Note that your timeline must still show a scale of time passage unlike some of the examples at the links provided. These links should not serve as templates for the project but rather tutorials for building the lines and arrows. If your events are evenly spaced, as they are in the examples on this site, they will be considered chronological charts rather than timelines and points will be deducted (see Timeline Exercise Grading Rubric):
Part 2: The Rationale
1.Use Microsoft Word to write the rationale. The rationale should be a separate document, so you will be submitting 2 documents for this project.
2.Make sure your paper follows current Turabian format guidelines for margins, page numbers, spacing, the Bibliography, and in-text citations. Refer to the Timeline Rationale Template for specifics on formatting the heading and individual paragraphs.
3.Do not use any sources for this paper except the textbook and lectures in the course. Do not include any quotations; but if you use specific details from the textbook in your rationale, make sure that you cite them properly. (Review information regarding plagiarism as needed).
4.For each of the 5 items you chose to add to the timeline, write a paragraph of 75–100 words each, describing the item and explaining why it is significant to the course of Western Civilization. The rationale must include a total of only 5 paragraphs and need not go over 500 words.
5.If you chose to include an item that is not specifically Western, make sure that you are clear in how that item influenced the development of Western Civilization. For example:
a.Averroes interpreted, analyzed, and applied Aristotelian logic: 1126–1198
Averroes’ interpretation of Aristotelian logic is significant to Western Civilization. It was his work in the Islamic Empire which spurred Western scholars to revisit the writings of Aristotle and other Greek philosophers and to apply that logic to the defense of Christian Scriptures. Thomas Aquinas, a contemporary of Averroes, is particularly famous for his work in apologetics of the Late Middle Ages. The renewed interest in the study of ancient Greek blossomed during the Renaissance period into a study of ancient languages, a renewed interest in Scripture, and a desire for accurate translations of Scripture into common languages.
6.Grading will be based on the level of analytical reasoning, the synthesis of course content as represented in the explanations, and the quality of writing (see Timeline Exercise Grading Rubric for further details).
·When you have finished the timeline and the rationale, review the following checklist to make sure you did not forget anything:
·Two different documents are included.
·Timeline shows chronological scale by spacing dates to show time passage.
·Rationale has been proofed for grammatical/mechanical errors.
·Dates have been double-checked and all are correctly represented on both documents.
·Timeline is professional, colorful, and interesting.
·Rationale is formatted according to the guidelines shown on the template (correct heading is used, paragraphs have proper headings, text is double-spaced, and the Bibliography has been attached as last page).
·Submit the Timeline Exercise: Rationale Portion through the SafeAssign link in Blackboard.
·Submit the Timeline Exercise: Timeline Portion through the Blackboard assignment link.
·Do not type your paper into the comment box.
·Do not email documents to your instructor unless given specific instruction to do so.
Your Timeline Exercise is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday of Module/Week
