Today we started by debriefing our sketchnotes and graphing questions. I was pleased with the sketchnotes and I discussed how to "extend" your observations to include suppositions to explain why things were the way they were. Next, we reminded ourselves how to tackle those what/so-what questions. We also watched the People's History segment in the On-to-Ottawa Trek and the Regina Riot: both good points to include when discussing the government's response to the Depression. Finally, we went over the test format. There will be choices on the two written sections and by thinking about the four or five big topics we studied (and by using the vocab terms we "chunked" at the beginning of the lesson to develop statement/support connections) you can prepare to be ready.
Unit test tomorrow - 2nd block.
