Twentieth Century Box

Assumption @ 0

Saeed Arida and Jeff Robin

Students will pick a subject that they are interested in from the Twentieth Century. Not a subject that they are an expert in, rather one that they are interested in. They will create at least four written and illustrated works and an artifact about their subject. They will exhibit their work in a cigar box that they have altered to represent their subject.

The Four writings are: Assumption at 0 (what you think the subject is about and why you chose it), Research (to find a historical consensus), Primary Documents, and a Historical Fiction (students will write a story about their subject).
