Part 1: Rhetorical Precis. Students are asked to submit an analytical response

Part 1: Rhetorical Precis.
Students are asked to submit an analytical response to the assigned readings . The
reading response should help students reflect on the related text by capturing and synthesizing key issues or
arguments as well as connections between the readings and their respective context and are not meant to be mere
summaries. In other words, these responses should serve as evidence of engaged critical reading and should help
the student to recall and share their analysis during weekly discussion. The reading response is meant to be concise
and thoughtful and is not expected to be longer than one page. Students shall refer to the rhetorical precis guideline
posted on Moodle for additional information and examples. Submissions shall be made each week in PDF format.
Precis should not be like a summary. I have uploaded the guidlines for how the precis should be. please check it out
Part 2: Timeline
(Throughout the semester, students are asked to develop a graphic timeline that examines and represents the
narrative of history. Students shall interpret and construct critical connections and intersections that are explored
within the framework of the course and found in their own research.
Students shall research (2) individual buildings, ideas, or events for each lecture topic and place them on the
timeline (along with a few key points such as title, year, place, designer, etc). The timeline is intended to develop
and evolve across the semester, with students discovering and plotting connections between buildings, ideas, and
events across history. Submissions shall be
submitted in PDF format. Indesign, Powerpoint, or any other non-PDF files will not
be accepted and will result in the student receiving no credit for that submission.
For the final timeline submission, students are required to submit a full timeline that captures the arc of the course,
showing analytical thought and connections between moments in history. Students shall provide a one-page
synopsis which explains their timeline and the historical analysis they have developed. Timeline format is to be
determined by the student. This assignment is intended to be a graphic exercise. Structure and legibility are
required; Creativity is encouraged
the timeline should include all previous submissions and should therefore be a document that grows with each
submission. In addition, many of the timeline entries describe overall periods (classical, medieval, baroque, neoclassical, etc). The timeline entries should constitute buildings or historic events, and there should be two entries for each lecture topic (therefore four entries most weeks) I will be uploading the previous timelines i did so once you complete the timeline for these readings, you should combine it with the previous timelines and it should show growth.
DO NOT INCLUDE SUMMARY FOR THE TIMELINE LIKE THE PREVIOUS WEEKS TIMELINE!
COMBINE ALL TIMELINES (timeline week 2, timeline week 3, timeline week 4) ONCE THE ONE FOR THIS WEEK IS DONE AND MAKE SURE THERE IS GROWTH FROM EACH WEEK. FOLLOW INSTRCTIONS ABOVE AND CHECK OUT THE TIMELINE EXAMPLES I UPLOADED FOR BETTER IDEA.
