Hi everyone! Next week we will finish our unit about Colonialism and Imperialism. You will be assessed on your learning through the unit on Thursday. Click here to view the possible questions and begin preparing for the test! You will have to complete five short answer questions in class.
- I can identify the critical components of imperialism
- I can communicate and work effectively within a team or group.
- I can articulate contrasting perspectives of colonization of Africa using a case study.
- RAP: Class began class in their groups, finalizing their political cartoon and Google Slide presentations to class. On Wednesday they spent time in their groups preparing their presentations, and had to finish their work outside of class. This time was used primarily to make sure all students had the materials and final preparation they needed.
- Main Stage: Students presented their political cartoons and summaries (all slides and summaries are available in Google Classroom). Students not presented completed their case study graphic organizer (from previous class), and asked questions of participants.
- Closing: To end class, students had a chance to respond to some reflection questions about African perspectives of colonization, and then had a short round of philosophical chairs to discuss their learning. The goal is to facilitate as much learning as possible through purposeful listening. Afterward, students were assigned a short reflection assignment (posted on Canvas). Students were also assigned the last reading of the unit, the Epilogue and Study Guide questions (first two pages only). These are also available on Canvas.
