Create a timeline that shows how the movements of the new left were occurring simultaneously. Include key events and people under the dates with notes on what was happening in the years you pick.
The purpose of this timeline is to give the big picture of how events in the 1960s occurred simultaneously. This timeline is an opportunity to choose the events, people, and thinking that are most important during this decade. Use the footnote feature to cite your references in this project.
When you make your own timeline, the information I am giving you is comprehensive and complete enough to guide you to create it. Since we are not a homework completion company, we can give notes only. We cannot make powerpoints or actual timelines due to our ethical stance. However, all my ideas help you to construct it. Hope this helps.
