Today we watched the "Britain Alone" video (sorry for the poor quality of the degraded vhs tape). After viewing and discussing, I asked the class to write a brief five or six sentence summary of the video. By now you should be getting very comfortable developing a quick topic sentence and then summarizing a discussion. This ability to take a big idea and simplify key points will pay dividends for those of you going on to post-secondary school next year.
I also asked students to select a timeline event and research it as per the example below. We have the computers on Wednesday and Thursday, and I'll ask you to transcribe your findings onto a Google doc then.
I did not assign any homework so that you would have another night to build your inquiry presentations due Friday. Tomorrow
