CREATING A MUSEUM EXHIBIT (1800 2000)

Task:
Imagine that Discovery has decided to open a new museum to focus on life in the 19th and
20th centuries. The museum planners want your input on what to include in the museum
section devoted to your designated event (Cuban Revolution, Civil Rights Movement,
World War I, etc.). Your task is to design or create a museum exhibit that will help the
museum-going-audience understand what life was like during this time period. This
exhibit should accurately portray important events, innovations, individuals, etc. from
your chosen time period. You may draw your information from textbooks, EBSCO, and
other scholarly resources.
Description:
Since this is meant to be a museum exhibit it should be something interesting and
thought-provoking. Museums do not put five page essays on display very often. You can
design an exhibit that includes a still life display, diorama, posters, interactive materials,
audio-visual displays, etc. Just be sure that your final product is:
1) Appropriate for a public museum, and
2) Informative and accurate in regard to the history you have learned.
Important dates:
You will present your museum exhibit in class on Wednesday, May 13. You will have a
significant amount of time to work on your exhibit in class, so my expectations are high.
Grades will be based on the rubric attached. Please include this copy of the rubric with
your final project.
