MAKE SURE YOUR IMAGES ARE IN THE CORRECT FORMAT!

You will be using Timeline JS to create your timeline.
Writing captions is an art form that requires practice!
Labels should show authority and knowledge, but have a less formal tone than you might use in an academic paper or article. Be sure to keep your audience in mind, and to place materials in context. For each label, consider what the take-away or message is for the viewer. Use this to frame your writing.
