IRELANDS DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

Assignment InstructionsFor this assignment, I want to bring out your creative side. Instead of writing a paper, you will create a PowerPoint or a Prezi based on the topic you choose. You will become a Modern Day Revolutionary. You would have already chosen a Modern Day Country by accessing the CIA World FACTBOOK. Your country needed to be approved by the instructor in the CoffeHouse forum. One country per person. If you choose a country that is the same as your peer or decide to change your country, there will be deductions, 10 – 15 points.Now the link for the CIA World Factbook is located on the tool bar to the left of the classroom. Please read the directions carefully. DIRECTIONS FOR THE ASSIGNMENT

The Declaration of Independence is one of the most powerful documents that came from the colonists in America against their mother country, England; or I should say against the Monarchy, King George. Staying true to ideology that came out of the Enlightenment period, Thomas Jefferson created this list of grievances against England and basically said American Colonists had enough. With this document, the colonists declared their independence. Please make sure you read through the Declaration of Independence. While it is one of our most revered documents, it should be a guide to your assignment. A link is also provided.Declaration of IndependenceIn this assignment you are a modern day revolutionary. For the country you choose, you will research what is going on and decide on reasons for a new government. Basically, you want independence from the government that is already in power. Read as many articles as you can, these articles will give you insight on what is going on in the country you chose. Make sure you get articles from reliable sources. This is the reason why you need more than just one source. Most of these articles will be newspapers articles but you will need to do a bit more research on the country itself.All information has to be factual. The assignment will be done in a PowerPoint presentation or a Prezi. You will have to have visuals. Below are guidelines for the Prezi and for the PowerPoint presentation, they are mainly the same thing but they are different formats. There is a PowerPoint example for you to view as well as the Prezi link both can be found in the CoffeHouse Forum labeled topics.You can make it interesting by adding some voice or music, the choice is yours. MAIN (General) REQUIREMENTS for both Prezi an PowerPoint.The minimum number of sources and citations for your short paper is three sources. Any material that is not common knowledge has to be cited or any information that is taken directly from the site has to be cited and in quotations marks.

There is a word count for the entire presentation is 600-900 words. Anything less will not justify your research. You need visuals in your presentation – a third of your presentation is to have visuals. – Do not use background visuals, it’s hard to read the text and will not count as visuals.

The PowerPoint and Prezi must include a cover slide with your name, course number and title (HIST112 – World Civilization Since 1650) instructor’s name, and date.The rest of the directions for the Powerpoint first and Prezi next are below.Before I get into those directions —- Remember, the Declaration of Independence is a list of grievances against the King. You will be creating a list of grievances against the government/leader of the country you choose.Directions for PowerPoint Presentation.MODERN DAY REVOLUTIONARIES
In this assignment you will be recreating, rewriting the Declaration of Independence in Modern Terms picking a Modern Country.Slide 1 is the title of your Declaration, the class name, your name, my name and the date.Slide 2 is an introduction of your Declaration explaining to me which country you choose and why.Slide 3 you are to create your opening passages. This is equivalent to the first paragraph in the Declaration. The only passage you are allowed to use from the Declaration of Independence word for word is “When in course of human events”, the rest is in your own words.Slides 4, 5 and 6 (or more) – You are then to come up with minimum of 9 grievances. There needs to be three (3) grievances on each slide making. These grievances need to be in bullet form.Right underneath the slide is the “Speaker Notes”. You will explain your grievances here. You need to make sure you give me the “why’ you went with that particular grievance. Keep in mind, when you are talking about modern day governments, you NEED to take into account the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. We are talking about Present Day not yesteryear.

EXAMPLE OF A GRIEVANCE:Slide information:Obamacare – fines

In your notes section you will have:Congress has passed a national health care legislation call the Affordable Health Care Act. The insurance is to cover anyone who does not have insurance. It has unintended effects where the uninsured has to pay a fine if they did not sign up for coverage. You will pay the “higher of the two amounts: either 2% of your yearly household income or 325 per person, 162.5 for each child.” (Healthcare.gov)
Slide 7 is your closing paragraph.Again, you will use these words from the Declaration of Independence for your closing, “We, therefore, the Representatives of these” (put in the country you are representing here) and the closing reason for the your Declaration, closely resembling the Declaration of Independence. Slide 8 is your Bibliography Slide – Remember you need three reliable sources.For example:References/Bibliography/Work Cited“The fee you pay if you don’t have health coverage.” (2015). HealthCare.gov retrieved from https://www.healthcare.gov/fees-exemptions/fee-for… I found that in source citations in your notes section is the best on the PP and the Prezi.For this assignment, History majors use insource citations in your PowerPoint or Prezi. Using footnotes is cumbersome.PREZI — Directions for PreziYou will follow the same guidelines as the PP. The only difference for the Prezi is that you will put all your information in the shapes you use in your presentation. Shape/Bubble 1 is the title of your Declaration, the class name, your name, my name and the date.Shape 2 is an introduction of your Declaration explaining to me which country you choose and why.Shape 3 you are to create your opening passages. This is equivalent to the first paragraph in the Declaration. The only passage you are allowed to use from the Declaration of Independence word for word is “When in course of human events”, the rest is in your own words.Shapes 4, 5 and 6 (or more) – You are then to come up with minimum of 9 grievances. You do not have a note section for Prezi. All your information will be located in each shape. Shape 7 is your closing paragraph.Again, you will use these words from the Declaration of Independence for your closing, “We, therefore, the Representatives of these” (put in the country you are representing here) and the closing reason for the your Declaration, closely resembling the Declaration of Independence. Shape 8 is your Bibliography Slide. Remember you need three reliable sources.

Augus t 12, 2012
Preamble
As a ancient country, we, the people of Syria,
can trace our heritage throughout the
development of the Middle East. We are a
great people, a modern people, with our
location providing a microcosm of the various
Middle Eastern ethnicities and religions.
Given our prominence in both history and the
international news as of late, we are
disgraced by the horrid actions of our leader
Bashar Al-Assad in response to our peaceful
protests.
Declaration of Freedom
“When in the course of human events”[a] it
becomes necessary to address certain
injustices by an unresponsive ruler, we, the
people, are forced to them responsible for
their actions by actively seeking to dissolve
our common ties. Therefore, because of the
grievances listed below, we are compelled to
give birth to a new form of government, one
more responsive to the God-given natural
rights of its people…
Grievances
1. Lack of freedom of assembly and
protest
2. Freedom from government harassment
3. Freedom from fear of one’s life
Grievances (continued)
4. Lack of authentic representation
5. Lack of economic opportunity
6. Lack of governmental transparency and integrity
Grievances (continued)
?
7. Lack of rights for religious and
ethnic minorities
8. Lack of an independent press
?
9. Lack of freedom to hope
Declaration of Freedom
“We, therefore, the representatives”[b] of the
Republic of Syria thereby set forth that our
ties shall be dissolved to the Al-Assad
government and the governed are released
from all allegiances henceforth. As an
independent people, we shall be once more
be free to conduct the people’s business as
we see fit, procuring for the Republic of Syria
all the rights and responsibilities of a free
people.
–Yousef al-Taylor
