Day 76--

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 different ideas about the rights of women at the time of the 2nd Industrial Revolution.I will work with two different documents from the time period and analyze their arguments.  I will create a chart that identifies key arguments on two different. This is a formative assessment. It will help me understand material that I'll use in my later summative assessments. 

On Thursday, you had a chance to evaluate the arguments of two people on different sides of the suffrage debate, Document A and Document B. You also had a chance to use an APPARTS Chart to help you understand the document better.

Today you'll continue your consideration of the suffrage movement at the turn of the 20th Century using primary source documents, but this time you'll focus on the messages conveyed by graphic images. (Some of the images below have text as well; you may use the text in your analysis).

Here's what you need to do:

1) Get together with your group from Thursday and take a few minutes to look at ALL the images below:


2) CHOOSE TWO (2) to focus on. Try to choose one that seems to support Susan B. Anthony's point of view from Thursday, and one that supports J.B. Sanford's opinions (basically, one that seems to be in favor of women getting the vote, and one that seems to be against it.)

3) As you dig into your analysis, collect as much information as you can about the two images you chose using a Split APPARTS Chart. In some cases, analyzing an image can mean dealing with less information than a written document, but take enough time to really look at your image to find clues or details that lead you to a conclusion that you can support. Use the Ctrl + keys to enlarge the images on your computer if necessary to see more detail. 

4) Return to your Venn Diagram or Table from Thursday and add new ideas to the two sides (and common ground) using information from your new sources. Be sure to use a different color for your new information, or use some other method to identify information that came from the images as opposed to the written texts from Thursday.  Include a key to your coloring/identification system, and provide a link to the image that you are working with. 

5) Be ready to show off your images to the class and to explain their meaning.
