Historical Blog Post Paper
Centuries ago, there was no Internet or social media. Imagine what things might have looked like if there had been.
For this assignment, adopt the character of a person from between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries and write up a blog post for them.
Choose one of the following individuals to portray:
A French nobleman living at Versailles under Louis XIV (c. 1700)
A French commoner on the day that King Louis XVI was executed (January 21, 1793)
A French soldier during Napoleon’s Hundred Days (March 20th – July 8th, 1815)
An English factory worker at the time of the Factory Act (1833)
A Prussian soldier on the day Wilhelm I was crowned Kaiser (January 18, 1871)
A British journalist covering the Boer War (1899-1902)
An American survivor of the sinking of the R.M.S. Lusitania (May 7, 1915)
A Russian factory worker during the March Revolution (March, 1917)
An British soldier on D-Day (June 6th, 1944)
An East German during the fall of the Berlin Wall (November 9,1989)
You need at least one cited source for this assignment. You are encouraged to draw on the readings and lecture materials assigned to craft your blog, though you are not required in this case to do so. When using outside sources, however, keep in mind that any outside source must be more than simply credible or academic. It also needs to be college-level material. Do not use sources aimed at the general public or at high school students; do not use non-academic sources or non-credible sources. Use of lower-tier sources will result in point deductions. Please list your sources in a bibliography at the end of your post in whatever format (APA, MLA, Chicago/Turabian) you feel most comfortable with. List any images separately.
The blog post must be submitted through the Assignments tool as a Word document. For help on how to do this, please see this article from Microsoft Office Support.
The text portion of the blog post must be between 600 and 900 words long.
The post should show historical knowledge as well as a creative effort to write in the “voice” of the person you’ve chosen to portray. Because blog posts are by their nature informal, I expect a certain degree of informality in your writing, though you do need to remember to proofread for proper grammar, syntax, and punctuation. If you choose a non-English speaking character, you should still write in English (though using some “native tongue” expressions is certainly both appropriate and fun).
Blog posts also often include multimedia elements (images, animations, audio and video clips, etc.), so you should include some of these as well. Be sure to list the media sources in your bibliography separately, so that the instructor can easily identify which sources were utilized for content, which for imagery or audio.
