As someone who is in many time periods of History I want to look at 3 different time periods in British History that have a common theme. The first period will be the Viking Raids of England. The second period will be the Roman invasion of England. The Capstone will look at the attempted German Invasion in WWII and compare the three time periods. 3) your major takeaways from the experience.

Capstone: London during WWII Bombings
Objective: Use the knowledge gained from researching the history of British aviation and the history of Britain under Roman invasion to research the Bombings of London that occurred during WWII and create a short video documentary.
Below the objective statement, Insert a one or two paragraph summary of your findings from having reached this milestone. If this milestone, for you, represents a humanities and arts capstone, please indicate so. Edit the link below to link to your milestone page.
The activity journal represents an ongoing log of reflections gained through each and every project activity on the calendar.
Leave the above sentence in place exactly as it is, delete this sentence, and add a new activity journal entry for each major trip or activity in which you participate (museum visit, cultural experience, etc.).
Activity #1 Name
Add a paragraph about this experience noting the ways in which it related to one or more of your milestone aims. Did this experience directly relate to your milestones, or was the relation more indirect? In what ways did this experience cause you to think differently about your milestone aims? What were some of your other takeaways from the experience? For each site-specific term that you enter, check to see if there is a page in this wiki that exists and link to it. For example, if your reflection mentions William Shakespeare, check to see if William Shakespeare exists on this site. If an article page does exist, 1) link to it here, and 2) edit the page with a section or just a few sentences to ensure that the content on that page relates to this activity journal entry. For example, if while writing your activity journal reflection about your trip to Westminster Abbey, you recall seeing the headstone of William Shakespeare, note it in your reflection, and then edit the William Shakespeare with, at least, a sentence or two in an appropriate section about having a memorial site in Westminster Abbey. While your at it, edit the entry for Westminster Abbey with the relevant information. Did you take some interesting pictures or videos at those sites? Add those to the relevant pages. If an article page does not exist, create the page for the missing topic (Create Page link from main menu) and add some information using this article template as a starting point. For each activity scheduled on our calendar, you should 1) create an Active Journal Entry here, and 2) create one new article of substantial quality or edit and contribute to at least three related articles. The tone of this journal entry can be personal, but still quality professional writing; the tone of article pages that you create and edit should be objective, professional, referenced writing.
Think of this process as building a platform or a case that will help you make particular claims and conclusions through your project milestones. As noted in the syllabus, these journal reflections typically require the creation and refinement of articles, which is a significant part of your grade. If you create or edit articles in a group, note that in your personal journal entry as the wiki only tracks changes for the user who actually makes the changes.
Activity #2 Name
A paragraph for your personal reflection for another activity on our calendar goes here, just it was outlined in the previous example. Repeat this same process for the remaining activities. Whenever there's an activity on the calendar, complete an activity journal reflection.
My Complete Contributions
The journal section should end with the following link to your complete contributions (new articles, edited articles, added media, etc.); delete this sentence and replace the username Vjmanzo below with your own username:
Category tags for your profile page must include 1) the tag [[Category:Profiles]] and 2) the present year in which you are participating in the London HUA experience, and 3) the advisor(s) tags; that's it!
- Do not list any other tags especially "Project Category" pages as you do for Milestone pages.
- Do not list all of the categories available in this page; list only the categories related to your three milestones.
- Do not add the Template Pages category to any of your pages :)
plus the year the project was completed by you, like this:
plus the year the advisor tag(s) like this:
Note that the last name of the advisor may be different depending on who your advisors are.
Refer to the Profile Template for specific formatting instructions.
Delete this entire section when adding category tags--category tags don't need a section. Also, don't include the Template category tag below!!
