Unit VI Outline
So far in this course, we have introduced and assessed many noteworthy figures related to the colonizing and first 90 years of the United States. For this assignment, you will choose a significant figure who contributed to and influenced others during the time discussed in this course—with the exception of any U.S. President—and prepare an outline of how you would choose to communicate that figure’s relevance to today. This is not a biography. Your argument should highlight how society remembers your historical figure now.
For this assignment, you will be creating a one-page outline (minimum of 300 words) about your chosen figure and how he or she impacted the evolution of American philosophies or ideals. If you choose, this could be used to help write your transcript for the Unit VII assignment, which is described below. Your outline will need to be uploaded for this unit, and it is suggested, though not required, that you include potential sources.
The goal of this assignment is to prepare you for the Unit VII assignment described below. However, it is not required that you use the same person from your outline in the Unit VII assignment. If you do intend to use this outline in Unit VII, however, it is highly advised that you review and prepare using the instructions for that assignment in mind.
