Hi class! You are almost finished with your Historical Investigation Research Projects! The work I've had a chance to read and discuss is quite impressive; I am looking forward to reviewing your work. Be sure to use your time in class and Access Tutorial to solve any dilemmas you have with the research and writing process. I am here to help you, however I will not know to support you if you do not ask me.
- I can explain the impacts of nationalism and revolutionary movements.
- I can effectively apply and conduct research.
- I can answer my research question by summarizing evidence from sources.
- RAP: Students started class with a quick write and small discussion about the definition and importance of summarizing. In order to successfully complete Part C of the HIRP, students need to know what and why we summarize information.
- Main Stage: To provide students with a chance to model and practice their skill of summarizing, students then created summaries of "how to get a "very proficient" score in small groups. The posters look great, and will be a useful tool for students ahead of their rough draft workshop on Thursday. I want to provide as many supports for students as possible to not only complete the work, but also know how to excel.
- Closing: Students finished class by working on their Parts C and E of the HIRP. These are due on Canvas by tonight, and I'll review them as quickly as possible to provide students with the feedback they need to succeed.
