An obvious lack of effort or research is apparent. 1 points Timeline is fairly clear and follows topic and ideas, but tends to remain stuck at the abstract level. All "tell" and no "show." Organization is disjointed and explanation of events lacks clarity enough to impede the meaning. 2 points Same as prior, but examples are not as vivid, and some of the points remain at the telling or abstract level. Some good examples of "show," but the project overall is not consistent in presentation. Organization and structure may need help. A description is included for each entry but may need further development or refinement. 3 points Timeline is developed to "show," that is, to be concrete and scenic with narrative rather than just "tell" with abstract exposition. Concrete examples, quotations, anecdotes, descriptions, images etc. are fully developed in effective proportion to support the ideas of the project. Organization and/or structure are clear and easy to follow. A 1-2 paragraph description for each entry thoroughly summarizes content. 4 points Presentation Did not submit 0 points An obvious lack of effort went into the design of the presentation.
