The Rise of the Empire of Islam - 9/29/2014


AGENDA - 9/29/2014
1. Warm-Up--"I Wonder . . ."  Look at the map above (click HERE to enlarge). In your Composition Book, write down three "I Wonder" statements about the map. Look at it carefully. What questions do you have? What do you wonder about? What seems interesting or unusual about the map. Ask good, thoughtful questions about the map. You will start silently and individually, then you will talk to a partner sitting near you.

2. Crash Course World History - We will watch excerpts from John Green's "Crash Course World History - Islam." 
Watch 0:00 to 4:50 FIRST. - http://youtu.be/TpcbfxtdoI8
Start answering these questions HERE
And then start up again at 5:48 and finish - http://youtu.be/TpcbfxtdoI8?t=5m49s

3. Attention artists! - Constitution Day Poster Contest
See the top of the Chromebook cart for a flyer. Poster must be postmarked by October 1.

4. Last call for thank-you letters! Please give your letter to me ASAP if you haven't yet. I'm starting elementary school deliveries today.

Ever wonder why we take notes by hand instead of on our Chromebooks? Here's why:
