How baseballs are manufactured and stored
Baseball the value it has in the Dominican Republic’s culture and American culture
During a World series game where my father went with my mother and some friends when he was younger he got the ball
He owned a sports betting company and baseball meant a lot to him
It had been enshrined by him in his work office describe the office however you want and place the object somewhere there
After my father’s passing I was in his office and I found the ball in his office it could be a dramatic explanation
I asked my mom about it and learnt the “story from her”
I use to play with it in my house with my friends for many years
I gave it away to my younger brother when I came to college
This assignment asks you to trace a familiar object of your own from manufacture to how it came to you, and finally its (imaginary) acquisition by a museum. You will explore the object’s changing meanings and value over time and in different places.
This assignment asks that you to accomplish several tasks:
Describe the object vividly, including its appearance and condition. (I can attach a picture of the baseball)
Consider research about the *kind* of object you have chosen, placing it in its historical context.
Trace the history of *your* object–where it has been at various points in time, and how it may have changed. Tell the story of the object’s journey. Use 3rd person voice. This is a formal essay.
A-level work will use a variety of strong sources, and think about those sources critically. (It’s not just a question of what sources say, but how valuable/trustworthy they are.)
