This assignment requires students to visit a historical site (historical home museum, Civil War battlefield, Park, monument etc.) and produce a Powerpoint presentation that highlights the site. You are welcome to safely visit a historic site in person. However, you can find a site that will provide you with information (photographs, history of the site, information about the person, place, or event etc.) online and create a Powerpoint presentation with the information you found on the website. For example, The Frederick Douglass House highlights the Washington, DC home of historical figure Frederick Douglass. You can also garner ideas about local sites (Prince George’s County, MD) by going to http://www.pgparks.com/1883/Sites-Museums.
You should produce a short Powerpoint presentation (minimum of 10 slides) that emphasize what you learned from visiting the site. Consider these questions, what/who was highlighted? What did you learn from the site? What did they do well in developing the site/website? What could they have done better? Would you recommend this site/website to learn about this person or event? Please include photographs and any other visual
