Instructions for this discussion assignment: I’m providing you with only one primary source document because you’ll be doing a bit of your own online research. You’ll be choosing your own specialty subtopic from the below list of five: -Personal liberty laws -Fugitive Slave Act -Wilmot proviso -John Brown/Harpers Ferry Raid -Bleeding Kansas Create a PowerPoint or Google Slides presentation for this discussion. Your presentation is required to have: 1 title slide (think of a creative or interesting title but also relevant) At least FIVE (5) slides on questions 1 and 2 At least FIVE (5) slides on questions 3, 4, and 5 Your presentation should include a minimum of FIVE (5) relevant images (Use Google Image Search) At least ONE (1) (you may need more than one) slide that lists citations to your sources (title, author (if available), year (if available) and hyperlink) Use the provided document and your online research to answer the following questions 1. What were Benning’s main justifications for Georgia’s choice to secede? 2. What arguments did Benning use to convince Virginia delegates to secede? Which of his arguments do you think were best received by the assembled delegates? Explain. 3. Where do you see (a) reference(s) to your subtopic in the speech? (Hint: All of these subtopics are mentioned in the speech) 4. How does your research help you understand the role your chosen subtopic played in the secession of Georgia? 5. Given your research, why would Benningreference it as part of his argument in favor of Virginia’s secession? WARNING: DO NOT copy a website, that is plagiarism. DO NOT just summarize one web source. I am looking to see that you have consulted several sources and worked them into a strong answer to the questions below NOTE: Check to see that your websites are reliable and trustworthy. If you’re unclear on this and need extra guidance, this website should be helpful (opens in new window, https://sites.umgc.edu/library/libhow/credibility.cfm) NOTE: Stick to short relevant quotes. Don’t take up a whole slide with a single giant quote. Also, do not rush through a slide with a negligible amount of information. Part of the challenge of this assignment is striking a balance that avoids too little and too much information. NOTE: NO Wikipedia (dig/research deeper than that)
