Day 49: From Rome to Feudalism Comic Strip (10/31/2011)

The junior historians of 2017 will be able to create a comic strip accurately depicting six historical events from Rome to the rise of feudal society in Western Europe.

2. Tweet Storm: Tweet out what your current event topic was and one interesting thing that you learned. After tweeting, you must reply to one or more of your teammates asking them a question about their topic or providing them with your own insight.

Make sure you are replying to and retweeting your favorites.

3: Track Mr. Sanders as he explains what needs to be included in your comic strip (Stripgenerator). Click here to see the requirements of the project. Remember, your comic strip needs to be started and completed in the same day. With stripgenerator you cannot edit the comic once you had saved it.

Post your comic with a complete description to your history portfolio when you are finished.

Bonus Thinking Question:

Imagine that you return home from school today and your parent or guardian gives you a list of all the chores you must complete before dinner. The list is over 10 pages long! You try to get out of doing the work, but it is not possible. As you work, you notice that your parent or guardian is not doing any of this hard work! How do you feel about this experience? Why

Answer this question as a comment in this blog post for extra credit!

4. Finishing up last week: Make a copy of this reading and this graphic organizer for today's activity. Make sure you have renamed both. We are going to be reading and marking up (annotating) the text. For each paragraph, you have to highlight what you think is the most important information and create one note summarizing the information for yourself. (We might need to finish this on Monday.)

5. When it is time for step 5, Mr. Sanders will ask you to take an exit ticket.

6. Special Event: The History of Halloween (save this video for us to watch as a class). Check out these great facts about Halloween.

Looking ahead: Create a tumblr account. We're going to be using tumblr Thursday next week. Your tumblr site should be KIPP, your first name, and last initial. For example, mine would be KIPPJamesS. Feel free to play around with template s and tools. I'll be looking for a few experts to help us out.

Homework: Read about the history of Halloween and complete the reading reflection.
