  14. 15. HOW TO CLIMB THE LADDER OF KNOWLEDGE AND REACH GREATER UNDERSTANDING OUR KEYS TO SUCCESS
  15. 16. <ul><li>BASEMENT LEVEL : (Hey! We have to start somewhere! Only one way to go from here: UP!) </li></ul><ul><li>We are currently hanging out at the same place: </li></ul><ul><li>AT THE BOTTOM OF THE KNOWLEDGE LADDER </li></ul><ul><li>Where we may not understand one thing about this assignment or the document we will read, analyze and interpret. You may be CONFUSED here! Don’t worry! You will understand! </li></ul><ul><li>You may be worried that you can’t do this: </li></ul><ul><li>YES, YOU CAN! </li></ul><ul><li>You may think that you can fake it and </li></ul><ul><li>just pretend to try: </li></ul><ul><li>NO, YOU CAN’T! </li></ul>
  16. 17. <ul><li>ROOF TOP LEVEL: (Hey! We have to set goals! </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s PROGRESS up the ladder…it’s the American way!) </li></ul><ul><li>We will reach the </li></ul><ul><li>TOP OF THE </li></ul><ul><li>KNOWLEDGE LADDER </li></ul><ul><li>Where, after following each of the steps and using </li></ul><ul><li>each of the keys, we will gain a clear view ( AND UNDERSTANDING ) of an event in Pennsylvania and its relationship to the beginning, middle, end or aftermath of the American Civil War. </li></ul><ul><li>We will increase our reading comprehension and thereby improve our ability to analyze text and interpret its meaning. We reached our goal and have climbed out of the basement of confusion! </li></ul>
  17. 18. <ul><li>… .May I Remind You… </li></ul><ul><li>You may be worried that you can’t do this: </li></ul><ul><li>YES, YOU CAN! </li></ul><ul><li>You may think that you can fake it and </li></ul><ul><li>just pretend to try: </li></ul><ul><li>NO, YOU CAN’T! </li></ul>
  18. 20. HOW??? Think of this list of materials as the tools YOU’LL use. They are like the individual rungs on the ladder… YOU will need to use each of the tools to steadily progress up each rung to reach YOUR goal: UNDERSTANDING THE MEANING OF WHAT YOU ARE READING. (They are your KEYS to success!)
  19. 22. YOUR TOOL KIT: (YOUR KEYS TO SCALING THE LADDER OF KNOWLEDGE, CLIMBING OUT OFTHE BASEMENT OF CONFUSION, AND ACHIEVINGYOUR GOAL: REACHING THE ROOFTOP OF UNDERSTANDING!) The next slide is a complete list of the assignment handouts (you’ll get all of them tomorrow.) You will need to complete and return all of them to me in the order in which they are listed. I will evaluate your completed handouts to determine whether you’ve reached the goal of understanding and interpreting the Primary Source Document, “EXCITEMENT IN PITTSBURGH.” From your completed work, I need to be able to determine what YOU THINK about the article. I will also use your completed handouts to evaluate your effort.
