Interactive Timeline


For the Final Project, you are required to make a timeline of the events in the history of American education that made a significant impact, and include a summary of each event.



Guidelines for the Timeline
To create the timeline, use the information from each week’s Timeline Discussion Forum response. (You may use the events you listed or the events your peers have listed. You will upload your text, event by event, to a timeline you create using Tiki-Toki. You must include historical events, with each significant time period being represented with at least two different events/individuals. You must include an introduction timeline slide (as prompted by tiki-toki) that will include your name, the name of the course, and a brief description of what your timeline entails. You must include a minimum of 20 historical events; feel free to include more events in the area(s) that you feel were most significant. You are encouraged to use scholarly sources where appropriate. After selecting the historical events, compose a brief summary (25 to 50 words) for each, and select and include a historical image or video that highlights the event. Include a minimum of three sources in addition to your textbook and reference them in APA 6th-edition style. Once the timeline is complete, please include the final tiki-toki link in your written document.



Additional notes regarding the timeline:


  • Review the following example of the Final Timeline Assignment for EDU 324.
  • The events/figures that have been chosen for the example are not significant to the history of American Education and may not be used in your final timeline.
  • When creating your own timeline, please be sure to adjust the date as needed; either the actual date; February 5, 2014 or 2014, whichever is appropriate.
  • Please be sure that all images have captions.!date=1507-04-04_15:22:25!



Written document must include:


  • Cover page
  • Reflection of the timeline
  • Tiki-toki link
  • A reference page


Reflection Items:


  • Determine which event listed in your timeline you feel is the most significant and explain why.
  • State which event you found the most interesting and explain why.
  • If you had access to a time travel machine, explain which event you would like to have been a part of and why.
  • Predict an event that you think will be listed on future timelines and provide a rationale.


Please note you will be graded on the clarity of your narrative and the appropriateness of design (e.g., the quality of the images, how well the images relate to the given event) and the quality of your response to the reflection items.



The summaries and the written portion of the Final Project will be submitted to Turnitin, so be sure to cite your sources appropriately. Note that you must also cite in APA format the source of each of the selected historical images and/or videos. Music clips are also welcome if you can legitimately connect the song to the historical event (and properly cite the source).



The Week Five, Final Project: Interactive Timeline, asks you to use a free web program, Tiki-Toki. Please note that this is optional. You may use Tiki-Toki, PowerPoint, Word, or Prezi. The requirements remain exactly the same:


  • One Introduction slide/page – including your name, name of the course and a brief description of your time line
  • 20 (minimum) Historical Events slides/pages, each time period being represented by at least two different events. Each event will include a brief summary (25-50 words), a historical image or video, the date the event occurred and a title to name this event.
  • A reference slide/page to include at least three sources in addition to your text book. (A total of four.)


The accompanied written document also remains exactly the same as stated within the assignment directions.



*Please use word document as Tiki-Toki is optional. Please try to fit 3 events per page in word document as the images DO NOT have to be large. 7 pages for events and the rest for the information being asked. Select 2 events per Chapter as I have included all the events you can choose from. Thanks A Lot!
