Past & Present Assignment 2

Description

Asking students to find something during this time of the COVID-19 crisis that historians 10, 20, or 100 years from now would be able to use as a primary source.

Coverage

I chose this text document because I believe that the answer is within the question. 10, 20, or 100 years from now, historians looking back on the COVID-19 Epidemic are going to wonder what day-to-day life was like in quarantine. If this historian looks at all of the Hist. 106 students' responses to this assignment, they will find tons of primary sources that represent how they kept busy, what they did around the house, what they did for fun, what they did for work, and how their lives changed in general. This assignment is an opportunity for primary sources to actually be saved, documented, and remembered for future generations to come.
