American Perspectives

In my American Perspectives class, we recently did a project on monuments. For this project, we were assigned to create a monument that was related to the Civil War, and present it to the Major and other important people. My role in this project was to draw out what our monument looked like, and to bring some of the supplies like paint and paint brushes. We put a lot of effort into our project, even though we didn’t get our monument picked to actually be created. The monument project impacts our community because it gives us a chance to add an important piece of history to our town.

During our most recent project, we created ideas for the FDR to help improve Scott County. My group came up with substance abuse involving families for our issue. We believe that this issue is not only common, but is a very serious issue happening in Scott County. Our solution was this to connect with Lori Crosdale to possibly create a program called Hope For Families. This program targets children between the ages of 12-18. It would be used to help children who feel unsafe in a home with a relative using substance abuse. Down below is our presentation explaining our topic.

Hope for Families

 

 

Our most recent project is doing political cartoons. We have been going over this for about a month and a half, and have gone into great detail on past political cartoons, breaking down everything in the cartoon. Being able to evaluate a political cartoon is an important part of making one. We’ve been working on including things like exaggeration and sarcasm.
