Before you get back to work on your assessment, take this short survey to let Mr. Knowles know how your next assessment is shaping up. 

Once you've completed the survey, it's time to get back to work! Your next assessment is DUE TOMORROW--FRIDAY, OCT 5: 

How do the decisions of leaders affect those who follow them? 

Use at least 4 sources to support your arguments

Civics Standard 1.2--Understand the purposes, organization, and function of governments, laws, and political systems.

If you'd like to see how your assessment will be graded, you can see the scoring guide online

If you'd like to see a Timeline of the main leaders we've looked at you can open a Prezi  that shows them in order.

Keep working on organizing your response by working your way through the following templates. (Taking them in order should get you to your destination in good shape and in time!)

Step 1) To begin your assessment, you may want to review some vocabulary terms for this unit as well as some of the qualities you should think about as you get started making your choices. 
Open Google Doc Template ( CREATE from Template...) called Leadership Qualities and Vocabulary

Step 2) As you think about the leaders we've looked at, you can use this chart to plan your main points and the leaders' decisions that you'll want to focus on.
Open Google Doc Template ( CREATE from Template...) called Planning Your Answer to Assessment 2

Step 3) After making your choices, it's time to explore different ways to talk about them, as well as making choices about what resources to use. This planning guide can help.  
Open Google Doc Template ( CREATE from Template...) called Assessment 2 Planning Guide
