24 Homework: Create a historical postcard reflecting on life under King Louis XIV’s rule. Plan to Practice Seven Element Writing Assignment Subject: Louis XIV and Versailles Class: Modern World History Date: Due Wednesday, October 5, 2011 Assignment Summary and Rationale: This assignment is to act as a historical review of the absolute monarchy created by Louis XIV in France and its impact on the people of France. It is to practice synthesizing knowledge from primary and secondary historical sources into a well-integrated creative writing piece. It is also to explore historical perspectives through a social class lens. Writer’s Purposes: The student is to create a Historical Postcard from a historical viewpoint to examine and reflect on the reign of Louis XIV examining the changes he made politically, socially, culturally, and economically.

25 Writer’s Role: You have a choice between four different historical roles. They are: a)King Louis XIV, who supports the changes as he establishes an absolute monarchy and thinks only of his goals and power. b)One of the nobles living at Versailles who are dependent upon King Louis XIV due to the changes he has made. c)A Huguenot, a middle class French Protestant, who has not benefitted from many of King Louis XIV’s reforms due to his religious policies. d)A poor peasant who bears the financial weight of King Louis’s spending without reaping benefits. Audience: You are writing to a family member or friend living outside of France. Form: Type Three---This means a genuine self-edited rough draft with final draft.

26 Three FCAs: FCA: There is a clever slogan that captures life at Versailles and the nature of Louis’ reign and a picture(s) done in color and neatly that captures one or more aspects of life at Versailles. YOU MUST USE HISTORICAL IMAGES! It may be in support of Louis or use sarcasm to poke fun at him and his ways. This depends on your historical perspective points FCA: The letter is written in first person from a chosen historical perspective and this voice is captured in the personalized detailed accounts of life at Versailles points FCA: The letter addresses a minimum of THREE different aspects of Louis’ reign and life at Versailles that directly impact your life…politically, economically, socially, and culturally with specific historical details But your three aspects need to come from three of the four aspects points No Excuses: Historical images were appropriately used, in color, and neat and the letter was typed, spell-checked, and grammar- checked. And the rough draft of your letter with self-editing comments is attached points

27 Procedures: Use your Textbook Post-It Notes and Talking to the Text Notes on the Supplemental Louis XIV Reading Use your DVD Notes Use the notes from the PowerPoint Presentation on Louis XIV Use your Group Report Cards on Louis XIV Use resources from Ms. Barben’s teacher page or in her classroom See the student models hanging in Ms. Barben’s classroom Remember you must write a rough draft of your letter and self-edit it before your final draft.

28 Picture Side: On the blank side of the index card, you will have a clever slogan that captures life at Versailles and the nature of Louis XIV. On the blank side of the index card, there should be a picture(s) done in color and neatly that captures one or more aspects of life at Versailles. I recommend using historical images from the computer. It may be in support of Louis or use sarcasm to poke fun at him and his ways. It must be done in color, be neat, and historically appropriate. Letter Side: You are to write from either one of two different perspectives: On the lined side of the index card, you will write a letter in first person. You will provide detailed accounts of life at Versailles under King Louis XIV. You will show how the changes are affecting you and those around you. You must address THREE different aspects from three different areas of his reign-- -political, social, cultural, and economic that directly corresponds with the designated historical perspective. It must be written in first person and be embellished with stories, personal reactions, experiences based upon the historical sources provided. Do not put the address on the card. This should be typed in size 10 font. It should fill the complete back of the index card. This is due on:
