Welcome to Humanities Today is Wednesday, January 8, 2014 Please display all of your class materials: Notebook Folder Writing tool Personal reading material Start up is a See – Think – Wonder
Daily Learning Target “I can synthesize my observations of multiple sources to make an interpretation” Progression of Learning “I know what synthesize and interpretation mean” “I can synthesize my observations” “I can explain my interpretation”
“I know what synthesize and interpretation mean” Synthesize To combine ideas or observations to form a new and complex understanding (big picture) Interpretation An explanation of meaning arrived at through observation
“I can synthesize my observations” Front of Page: Back of Page: What’s Going on? # SEETHINK/CONNECTWONDER
“I can synthesize my observations” Today we will start our next unit. We will be studying a conflict that: Is in our state Is environmental, cultural, historical, and legal Involves Native Americans and European Americans Is still going on right now! You will have to figure out the rest by synthesizing observations to come to an interpretation: You will see a series of photos from 1999 I will ask you to stop and answer “What’s Going on?” at various points
“I can explain my interpretation” Groups of 2-3: What’s Going On? What happened Why it happened When it happened Who was involved Whole Group Share…
Fist to Five “I can synthesize my observations of multiple sources to make an interpretation” Reflection Question 1. On a scale of 1-10 how confused are you? Explain… 2. On a scale of 1-10 how difficult was this for you? Explain… 3. Write three questions that you have about the event we just looked at… Homework
Notes Talk about why: see think wonder Valuable skills Why looking at conflict is good/transferable Okay to say “as far as I know, this is what I believe” Interpretations are opinion and when you fess up to only knowing so much, you open up the conversation and allow people to offer information to add to your understanding.
