Instructions and TIPS

You MUST rename this file to replace LASTNAME with your last name and FIRSTNAME with your first name (as it is written in Banner). Leave the rest of the file name exactly as is.

For example, IF your name were Joy Lee, you would:

Rename LASTNAME_FIRSTNAME_3_Videos_Unit_1_10pt_Due_On_Date_of_Unit_1_1302.rtf

To be LEE_JOY_3_Videos_Unit_1_10pt_Due_On_Date_of_Unit_1_1302.rtf

 

3 Tips:

         The How to Do the Unit Videos (1st from the top of Videos & Assignments) takes the instructions below and inserts an example what you record for Step 2.

         The Searchable List (2nd from top of Videos & Assignments) lets you see a list of all videos, what folder they are in, and a description.

         How to Click to See a Video (3rd from top of Videos & Assignments) tells you how to click on these videos so you can display them.
Tip: The Dallas TeleLearning videos have an interface that requires something that you may find to be different than you are used to.

 

 

Before You Write Your Answer

The purpose of this assignment is to help you see change over time period covered by the Unit. The purpose is not to summarize each video or write a lot of words.

 

To quote the syllabus:

You choose three videos, one from each Part of the Unit, to see how history changes on an issue that matters to you. Examples: what happened to African Americans, big business, factory workers, farmers, immigrants, ranchers, technology, women, and so on.

 

Before you write your answers, you need to choose your probable videos. You do that by thinking about what you want to see (such as what happened to workers) and then using the Searchable List. The Searchable List shows you all of the videos that the Dallas Telelearning group created (and the Virtual College of Texas lets us use). It also tells you how to search and bring up a Find box if you do not already know. Tip: depending on the browser, the Find box may be at the top, bottom, or perhaps other places.

 

Once you find a video that you want to look at, be sure to copy and paste somewhere:

* The folder name The bold title above a list (The videos are grouped by folders with those names.)

* The video name The name in the left column of the list

 

Go look at the 3 videos. You may find one of them is not what you need; then choose another.

 

Note: You cannot choose videos in Unit 1 labeled as (Background from the Pre-1877 Section.) The first ones you can choose are from the folder Gilded Age.
