Day 47--

Last night's homework was to READ Chapter 10, Section 2 (310-317) and complete the Chart while you read, collecting information about the important people and terms from the reading. If you've completed the chart,  turn it in to the Daily Work Dropbox now, or, if you've written it on paper, hand it in to the basket on Mr. Knowles' desk. If you didn't yet finish, you may have some time later in class to do so. Or you'll have to finish over the weekend. Either way, be sure to turn it in when you're done. 

Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?How will I  accomplish this task?  How will I show that I have done this?How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to identify important ideas and work from a member of the Scientific Revolution or the Enlightenment.I will summarize important details about my assigned person, and be prepared to explain what I've found to others. I will present my slideshow to others in class before leaving class today. This is a formative assessment. My work will directly help me later as I complete my summative assessment for this assessment cycle.

Standard: History 4.2 -- Understand and analyzes causal factors that have shaped major events in history.

Key Question to Answer: How do people challenge, change, and build on the ideas of those who have come before them?

Content Focus--Ch 10: Revolution and Enlightenment, 1500-1800 (300-329)

For the last few days, we've been looking at the Scientific Revolution, when new ideas in the areas of math, science, chemistry, astronomy, and biology helped challenge, change, and build upon the ideas of others. Then last night, we looked at how those actions and ideas had an impact on other areas of society, in a time period known as the Enlightenment. 

Today you'll have a chance to review and organize information about ONE of the people you've encountered so far and make a short slideshow about the person.

First, find out who your person is. Once you know who you've been assigned, review your homework/notes about that person, and find the information about the person in the textbook. 

Next, open a Read-only copy of the slideshow available online. Instructions for what you have to do are embedded in the slideshow, especially on the 2nd slide (which you'll delete when you no longer need it). If you need help finding a quote from your person, please ask for help. Some are much easier than others. 

Follow the instructions carefully. Ask for help when you need it. Be ready to share your work before leaving class today. 

Finished early? Fantastic.  Get back to work on last night's homework if you didn't finish it, or help others with their slide shows. 

HOMEWORK over the weekend is anything you haven't finished yet: Last night's homework? The paragraph from Wednesday? Even the first assignment? If you've fallen behind, this weekend is when you'll want to catch up because you'll need it next week.
