    AP US Final Project- 13 Days That Changed America
    Kevin Randolph (krandolph@nscds.org), History Department Chair and AP US History Teacher
    Vinnie Vrotny (vvrotny@nscds.org), Director of Academic Technology

    Rationale for the Project
    Contingency is the backbone of the study of history. Every student of history has to contemplate the what might have been phenomenon, regardless of the period or event under investigation. Are events random in nature, or are the logical outgrowth of the decisions and actions people take and the consequences that follow? Do people set out to make history or does history make them?

    Each film should begin with a black slide with white lettering (18 font/Times New Roman) and the date your film is dealing with. There should be discussion of the things leading up to the date, the basic facts of the date and the impact of the day on future events.Citations will appear at the end of the entire concluding piece rather than at the end of each individual film.
