Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?   What idea, topic, or subject is important for me to learn and understand so that I can do this?   What will I do to show that I can do this? How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to explain connections between a current event and the civil rights guaranteed in the Constitution to my peers.  

I need to identify how a current issue involving civil rights is related to the Constitution, and I need to understand how similar issues have been handled in the past.    
I will create a brief presentation for the class using information I gathered previously for an essay, then present my topic and work to the class. 
This is a summative assessment; I need to create a presentation and share it with the class, showing a high level of skill.

Take a few minutes to review and make final preparations on your presentation. Make sure your Slides Presentation or Prezi is ready to go, then Share it with Mr. Knowles using the Assessment DropBox.
Before the presentations begin, take some time to review the Scoring Guide for the presentation (open PDF below). Keep in mind what you will be evaluated on as you get ready. 

We'll take volunteers to begin, then draw presentations at random. If you don't present today, you'll probably do so tomorrow, or Wednesday at the latest.
