Day 43--
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 key people in the early stages of the Scientific Revolution. I will collect information as I read the assigned pages from the textbook. I will complete a chart with information about each of the people introduced in the reading. This is a formative assessment. My work will directly help me later as I complete my summative assessment for this assessment cycle.

Welcome back from Spring Break! 
Today we get going with our next assessment cycle.

In case you like to look ahead, here's the standard, question, and content focus we'll be working on for the the next 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)

Big picture: Write a response to the question above to show how well you understand History Standard 4.2. Use a clear and inviting introduction as well as strong organization to lead your reader through your response. Include multiple examples from class and from your own investigations and experiences to support your thesis. Provide citations to show where all your information came from along with a complete and accurate reference list. Use standard academic English writing to present your ideas.  

Here's how we'll get started. 

Each of the reading sections in this chapter introduces you to many, many people who were important in the events of the time we're studying. To help you get to know the people, you'll need to complete a chart that helps you identify who those people were, and what they did, to make a mark in history. 

Today in class, you'll want to get a head start on tonight's assignment and begin collecting that information. 

Open a shared document called Ch 10, S1 Homework and make a copy for yourself to type in. Then, turn to page 302 in your text and begin reading about the time in history commonly called the Scientific Revolution. Each person on your chart is introduced, in order, in the reading, so pay attention as you go to find out about each one. (If you come across one out of order, you've skipped one). 

This chart is preparation for the work we'll do in class tomorrow. Be sure to have it finished before class begins.
