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 explain how the American Revolution developed as a result of the Enlightenment ideas and rulers that preceded it. I will review last night's assignment for details about the American Revolution. I will complete a series of questions using the text and other features from Chapter 10.4. This is a formative assessment. My work will directly help me later as I complete my summative assessment for this assessment cycle.

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

Mr. Knowles says:
"I don't know about you, but I could use a little more time to get ready for these assessments, so we're going to push everything back a day."

Sound good? I hope so.
Now, for today:
First-- by yourself
See how well you know some of the key people from this unit. 
  1. Get ONE description of someone from this unit who appears on one of your assignments.
  2. Using your memory (best) and/or your assigments (good) or textbook (hmmmm), identify who the description describes. 
  3. Once you know, and are sure, who the person is, write the name carefully and legibly on the blank side of the description.
  4. Add a page number citation in parentheses in the space after the typed description. 
Hand it in, then move on to the main event for the day.

Second-- by yourself or with a partner if you like
Use last night's reading and the textbook to answer the questions on the American Revolution Review assignment. 
  1. Open a copy that you can type in, then use your book to complete the questions there. 
  2. Use the descriptions of the location on the page (Infographics, Map, Text, etc) to show you where to look on each page for the answers. 
  3. Check your answers with another student, or Mr. Knowles, when done to make sure you've got them right.

Third / Final -- by yourself
Choose one of the options shown in the Sat/Sun box above to finish today's class. 
  1. Spend the last part of class PREPARING for the test or written assessment, or
  2. CATCHING UP on homework or past class assignments that you haven't finished, or 
  3. ORGANIZING assignments that you've completed this unit (try putting them into folder and make sure they're all named clearly so you can findwhat you want quickly during the test), or 
  4. GETTING STARTED on your written assessment  that is now due on Tuesday. More details and links that can help you are available here.
