Reagan’s America

TASK: Pretend that you are a museum curator and you have been tasked with putting together an exhibit telling the story of the Beirut bombing of the U.S. Marine Corps barracks. For your first post you need to undertake the following tasks: 1) select a maximum of eight items (two sound clips, four images, and two textual documents) for your exhibit drawing exclusively from the assigned Primary Document PDF for this DB; 2) indicate a title for your exhibit; 3) write a two-paragraph opening statement for your exhibit, explaining what theme/s you are exploring and relating those themes back to your exhibit; and 4) justify the images you have chosen for your exhibit. In your two reply posts your tasks include: 1) reflecting on the exhibits of your peers; 2) suggesting the addition of up to four different items taken from this DB’s readings only and explaining your choices; and 3) suggesting which two items should be removed from the exhibit and why. Information taken from sources other than the primary documents will not be evaluated and posts that are structured thusly will not count. You can, though, use your knowledge of the podcasts and the textbook for framing purposes, meaning typically one sentence per paragraph to set the scene. At least 90 percent of what you say needs to come from the documents in the form of summarizing content, minimally quoting, and analyzing. If a mathematical proportion would help you consider how much to summarize, how much to quote, and how much to analyze, consider the following as a good rule of thumb: 60 percent summary and discussion, 20 percent quotation, and 20 percent analysis. -Required length: three substantive posts for eligibility for full credit (first post must be 2-3 lengthy paragraphs and subsequent posts must be at least one lengthy paragraph).
