The Project
  • We will be talking about different components on Fridays during class
  • The vast majority of research and work will be done outside of class
  • You will need to do more than internet research, you will need to go to libraries, museums, etc.
  • Feel free to ask for help whenever you need it
  • Final projects are due on December 3rd , but there are various components due throughout the semester
leadership
Leadership
  • Leadership- the act of leading; providing motivation, guidance, or direction, usually from a position of authority
  • Leaders often personify admirable values such as courage, selflessness, ingenuity, and patriotism
  • Leaders can be good, but can also be bad
  • The impact of a leader does not have to be global can be local
legacy
Legacy
  • What is handed down to us from our ancestors or predecessors- what is left behind for future generations- such as ideas and accomplishments
  • Sometimes legacies are not understood until long after a leader has passed away
  • Often reformers are considered radicals in their time
  • Sometimes legacies depend on perspective- not all legacies are positive, some are controversial
theme leadership and legacy in history
Theme- Leadership and Legacy in History
  • Examples of leadership and legacy can be found everywhere! Military, politics, social movements, science, the arts, education, religion, economics, etc; also think about local and state history
  • Don’t forget the “in history” part- your topic must be historical- not a current event- as a general rule- at least 20 years ago
  • Need to be sure that your project focuses on BOTH Leadership AND Legacy!
