Signs of the Times Project Objectives:
1. Analyze information about a historical period
2. Develop both written and non-verbal communication skills
3. Evaluate and synthesize information
Directions: You will create a Signs of the Times poster. You will need to use your notes from this time period to develop a creative “sign of the time”. For example, “Let them eat cake,” “Give me Liberty or give me death”, or “make my day”. Brainstorm a list of slogans to fit this time period. Think of commercials, T-shirts, bumper stickers, wall plaques, and certificates for a variety of ways to display your “sign of the time”.
