Description

My thesis is a collection of six 18-inch-by-24-inch posters that chronicle significant events in U.S. History. It will include not only domestic events but also events that directly relate to U.S. foreign policy, ranging from the early civilizations in 12,000 B.C., to the end of the modern era. These posters will better educate K–12 students by updating the visuals that are used in history education -- the old drawings/paintings, and artist’s renditions – into content students can more easily relate to. I will also include a small deck of flashcards that could be purchased alongside the posters to augment the learning experience. Education is fundamental to a successful society, in more fields than just math and English; learning history is critical, because to understand our past is to understand our present. These posters will be a new level in history education – meeting students where they are, in a language they are interested in. These posters will help facilitate a generation of learners, who know their past and are ready to embrace the future.
