Students will take the events listed in class (and below) and place them in chronological order. For each event, they will give the date and a description of the event. The description should include information on what the event was or what happened, and the result of the event.

The assignment should be typed/printed in a 12 or 14 point simple font, and single spaced. Standard (default) margins should be used. Name, due date, and class and section should be included at the top of the first page. Students should skip a line between each event.

This assignment is due at the beginning of class on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. A 10% penalty will be deducted for each school day the assignment is turned in late. Any questions students may have should be directed to the teacher by the student, either in class or by email.

Each item will be worth three points. One point will be awarded for putting the item in the correct order, and giving the date if appropriate. One point will be awarded for describing what the item was or what happened. One point will be awarded for explaining why the item was important, what its effect or signifigance was. Extra points may be given for unusually complete, insightful or interesting answers that go beyond the required response. Students should do this assignment on their own. Points will be deducted for plagiarism and/or excessive help received from parents or others.
