Day 73--

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 understand basic facts about the second Industrial Revolution.I will focus on one section from last night's assignment and try to explain it to others.  I will create a slide show for a class presentation based on my one assigned section. This is a formative assessment. It will help me understand material that I'll use in my later summative assessments. 
Last night's assignment moved you toward thinking about how all the changes in the Second Industrial Revolution had an impact on the lives of people who lived at the time. We'll start with a QUIZ over last night's assignment. 

Once you've completed the quiz, you'll be turning your attention to one of the four sections in the reading, and working with a small group of other students creating a collaborative slideshow that presents the key information there. Here's how we'll do it:
  1. You'll be assigned one of the 4 sections from last night's assignment to focus on. 
  2. Create ONE new Google Presentation, then share it with 2 or 3 other students that have been assigned the same section. 
  3. Name your presentation your assigned number: One, Two, Three, or Four.
  4. Create one or more slides to represent the information for EACH of the questions on the homework. (Note: some sections can be covered with a single slide; others fit better on multiple slides). This means you'll likely have at least 6 slides, but maybe more.
  5. Make sure the question you're answering is clear on your slide(s) (You may want to use the question as the slide's title). 
  6. Follow the 6 x 6 rule for information on your slide (not including the title of the slide)
  7. Make sure you include page number citations, accurately formatted, on each slide.
  8. Include your group member names in the "notes" section at the bottom of the first slide.
  9. Once you've completed typing your information add decorative elements. You might look at the Library of Congress' American Memory collection to find photographs and other images that fit your particular topic.
  10. Turn your slide in to the Daily Work Dropbox after you're absolutely positive that you have completed all the steps correctly.  
  11. If you'd like to compare your answers to other questions on the assignment with your group partners before you break up for the next activity, feel free to do that, too. 
Finished? Great. 
If you have time, do a quick Google Search for information about one of the following people, all of whom played a role in the events you've been reading about. Learn a little about your chosen person that you can use in a short presentation tomorrow.
