RE 5140 Advanced Children's Literature: Timeline

Creating a timeline

Think of a timeline as a way to outline your project.  Timelines:

  • place your research in historical or contemporary context 
  • may be used to outline people's lives
  • help to prove or disprove family stories
  • help us understand life events, causes and effects of actions, and relationship
  • help to explain migration patterns

Sample timeline
