Day 112: West Africa Primary Source (3/9/12)

Standard: Students understand and distinguish cause, effect, sequence, and correlation in historical events, including the long- and short-term causal relations.

Aim: The historians of 2017 will be able to create a graphic organizer that demonstrates an understanding of the difference between observations and assumptions within the primary source.

1. Submit your homework: Place your homework on your desk and complete this form.

2. Tweet storm: I want you to create two tweets. One tweet should be an assumption that you found in the passage. The second tweet should be an observation you found in the passage. We're going to use these tweets to start our analysis of the passage. You can use this link to visualize the tweets.

3. Make a copy of this graphic organizer. In the boxes I want you to write two observations and two assumptions that were made by the traveller to West Africa. Embed the graphic organizer on your history portfolio when you complete it.

We will review your different assumptions and observations as a class.

4. Go on to your Google Reader account and find one interesting article. Tweet out a link to the article and complete the current event reflection (not the same as your homework)

5. We will watch the latest episode of CNN Student News.

Homework: A new current event for Monday. Cannot be the same current event as the one you did in class today.
