Assignment 1: Human Sexuality Throughout History Time-line

Our readings describe the various historical-cultural influences that have affected human sexuality. These historical-cultural influences include such events as the sexual revolution, the control of conception, the emergence of contraception, as well as the redefining of gender roles throughout history. Many of these events changed the way sexuality is viewed today. Using Prezi (, PowerPoint, or Word create a time-line and identify at least 7 important historical events that you believe influence sexuality today. Evaluate each of these events according to its significance in history and culture. Place the date, a brief description, or even a video clip of the historical-cultural influence. Please read the grading rubric below for additional guidance with this assignment.

All assignments and forums in the class are designed for you to demonstrate your understanding and your knowledge of the material content. It is never acceptable or appropriate to simply provide information that is copied and pasted from a source – any source. Even if the information were cited properly, copying and pasting does not demonstrate knowledge.

All assignments are submitted to Turnitin, which is a plagiarism checking tool. Any assignment receiving a score of 30% or better raises serious concerns about the originality of your work. An originality score should generally be no more than 20%. Originality scores between 20 and 50% will be graded with a point deduction. Any originality score over 50% after review will be graded with a 0. Please keep this in mind as you are submitting work. I set your assignments so you have 4 submissions. This means you can submit – check your Turnitin score to see what is non original or improperly cited and fix it. So submit a draft early as it can take anywhere from 15 min to several hours for the score to come back. Re-submissions need to occur before the due date. If you don’t know how to find and read the similarity report let me know. IMPORTANT – if you resubmit DO NOT CHANGE THE FILE NAME!
