Choose one of the following two assignments to complete this week. Do not complete both assignments. Identify your assignment choice in the title of your submission.

Note that while there are two options for the Portfolio Project, there is only one rubric. Review the rubric to confirm you are meeting the assignment requirements.


Option 1:

For the final Portfolio Project, write a paper about an event in the period of U.S. history up to the era of Reconstruction. This paper must illustrate the perspectives of a specific person or group of people (e.g. freed slaves) within a historically marginalized population. For the purpose of this assignment, we define historically marginalized as people whose perspectives have not been represented in history texts until very recently. Discuss the person’s or group’s era and experiences in context of what was happening around them, prioritizing their experience rather than the established narratives of the dominant experience. Possible perspectives include those of Anne Hutchinson, Pocahontas, or Sojourner Truth.

This paper must include a discussion of the following topics:

  • A thorough summary of the event, including the incidents that took place and the key individuals involved
  • The importance of the event in the larger scope of U.S. history
  • How the event changed the daily life of the person from whose perspective you are writing
  • A prediction for how the event will make a long-term impact in the lives of those in the under-represented group from which the perspective is being written (keep in mind that this perspective should be written from the time at which the event took place).

Please adhere to the following requirements for the paper:

  • Adhere to CSU-Global Guide for Writing and APA Requirements
  • Consist of at least four full pages but no more than six pages
  • Use at least five sources, including a scholarly journal article
  • Please be sure to include a Reference Page in APA style with this assignment. Try to choose scholarly resources, focusing on primary sources whenever possible.
  • Have an introduction and strong thesis
  • Make use of historical evidence and examples supporting your thesis
  • Finish with a forceful conclusion reiterating your main idea.

Option 2:

For the final Portfolio Project, create a presentation about an event in a period of U.S. history up to Reconstruction. Presentations may be created in a website, or in an application such as Prezi, VoiceThread, PowerPoint, or YouTube. This presentation must illustrate the perspectives of a specific person or group of people (e.g. freed slaves) within a historically marginalized population. For the purpose of this assignment, we define historically marginalized as people whose perspectives have not been represented in history texts until very recently. Discuss the person’s or group’s era and experiences in context of what was happening around them, prioritizing their experience rather than the established narratives of the dominant experience. Possible perspectives include those of Anne Hutchinson, Pocahontas, or Sojourner Truth.

This presentation must include a discussion of the following topics:

  • A thorough summary of the event, including the incidents that took place and the key individuals involved
  • The importance of the event in the larger scope of U.S. history
  • How the event changed the daily life of the person from whose perspective you are writing
  • A prediction for how the event will make a long-term impact in the lives of those in the under-represented group from which the perspective is being written (keep in mind that this perspective should be written from the time at which the event took place).

Please adhere to the following requirements for the presentation:

  • The presentation should be 10-14 slides in length, not including title or reference slides.
  • A 2-3 page paper narration should accompany the presentation. Alternatively, a 4-6 minute audio narration following the presentation may be submitted.
  • Include at least one image on each slide and a citation for each image used. Images may include portraits, images of documents important to the individual, and images of the country at the time.
  • Use at least five sources, including a scholarly journal article.
  • Please be sure to include a Reference Page in APA style with this assignment. Try to choose scholarly resources, focusing on primary sources whenever possible.
  • Have an introduction and strong thesis.
  • Make use of support and examples supporting your thesis.
  • Finish with a forceful conclusion reiterating your main idea
  • Adhere to CSU-Global Guide for Writing and APA Requirements
  • Review the grading rubric, which can be accessed from the Course Information page.
