1. Handouts: * Interpreting a Timeline * Two blank sheets of white paper 2. Assignments: * In-class—Examine timelines using today’s handout and text pp. 24-25. 1) Create a personal timeline. Hand it in by end of the period. 2) Create a timeline over chapter 1 events. Finish at home. * Homework—1) Create a timeline over Ch. 1 events, due tomorrow BOC You will hand this in tomorrow for a grade/points. 2) STUDY for quiz over Chapter 1 (the homework will help) 3) Bring a PEN with dark colored ink tomorrow for your quiz. [Current Events over a sports news story is due Sept. 18.] 3. Assignments due today: * Did you finish reading your Current Events guidelines at home? 4. Bell Ringer: * See board
Outcomes: Be able to... 1. Describe a timeline. 2. Explain the purpose of a timeline and how to read one. 3. State the pivotal event that is the “dividing line” in timelines and explain why it is used. 4. Indicate two different sets of labels used to indicate the periods before and after the “0” year. 5. Explain how to indicate which century is the first, second, third, etc.
Starter #1 Bell-ringer follow-up: Describe a timeline. A timeline is a simple diagram that shows how the dates of key events relate to one another. It often has three main components: 1) The names of important events 2) The dates of those events 3) A simple symbolic illustration of the event.
Starter #2 We will learn about timelines by looking at one that highlights the world’s three great monotheistic religions (see handout). What does “monotheistic” mean? “Mono” is the Greek root for “one.” “Theo” is the Greek root for “God.” So, put those meanings together and what do you get? Our Timeline features the three great (major) religions that all believe in “one God.”
Starter #3 Let’s analyze the timeline on our handout.... We read timelines from left to right, like reading pages in a book. Look at the numbers that serve as dates. What pattern do you see? Notice that some numbers get smaller, while other numbers are getting larger? Why? Notice also there are two different ways to designate the dates before and after the “0” point. What are those two different designations and what do they stand for? What do people mean when they say something like, “It happened in the 18th century”? (See bottom of handout for a hint.)
Starter #4 You will create two timelines today. 1)In-class assignment: Do a personal timeline of major events in your life. Hand it in at the end of the period. 2)Homework: Create a timeline over Chapter 1. Find events for which dates are given and organize them into chronological order. Providing simple illustrations on top is optional. (What does “optional” mean?) You may do that if you wish, but you don’t have to. I would love to see you do illustrations, but I don’t want to overwhelm you time-wise. Your timeline over chapter 1 is due tomorrow, BOC, for points.
