Day 46: Geography of Western Europe (10/26/11)

Aim: The junior historians of 2017 will be able to describe three or more of the important events in Western Europe that led to the development feudalism.


1: Quick Question: Read the complete scenario before answering the question: Imagine that KIPP SF Bay is in chaos, and the school day as we know it does not exist. However, SF Bay is all you know and you must learn to exists without the structure and safety it once provided. Three powerful leaders have emerged. Mr. Patrone is in charge of the upper-school side of the building. Mr. Hannibal is in charge of the gym. And Mr. Shaffer is in charger of the lower-school side of the building. You must choose to be loyal to someone. Who do you choose and why?

2. We will watch the first half of this quick YouTube video to get some background on the geography of Western Europe.

3. Track Mr. Sanders as he provides you with the background needed for today's activity. In order to succeed today, you will need to know the history of Charlemagne. Here is a copy of the presentation for your records.

4. Creation Challenge: You and your group have 15-20 minutes to come up with an idea for how to teach the information in my presentation in a more effective way. Your idea for how you would teach the information and what type of project you would have the students do needs to be written in your groups document.

5. Exit ticket. At the end of class, Mr. Sanders will have you close your computers and get ready to take an exit ticket. Remember, when you are taking any assessment, you can only have that page

Homework: Read through this document organize the ideas into a G.R.A.P.E.S. table (if you're doing it on the computer, make a copy of this document and complete the homework here).
