Maps and Timelines (5% of grade)

Time and place are two important ways to visualize the story that you are trying to tell. Investigate using maps and timelines to help to visually interpret your topic. Your map/timeline can cover a small incident or tell the main story of your topic. It can include links to items, as well as descriptions of events and places that you are not covering in your exhibit. It should stand on its own as a historical resource. You can incorporate your map or timeline as a page in your web exhibit (see omeka tips for instructions).

We will go over several options for creating maps and timelines on Week 11. **Your map/timeline is due Week 14: Dec. 3* and students will discuss the creation and how the tools worked.

Your Map/Timeline

Add 10-15 places or events that have some coherence to your topic. You can map birthplaces of historical figures, literary references, or a walking tour relating to your digital archive.

Grading Criteria


Is the map or timeline complete? Does it have 10-15 items that are related to one another?


Are the labels and content well-written and cohesive? Have you included images when possible, with links to more information?
