  • Explain to students that you ill explain in further detail how to do each assignment as they approach, and that each assignment has a video with it to help them complete the work.
    This lesson is to specifically focus on how many assignments, due dates, where to find the assignments.
    Go over the three questions asked first so they know what is included in the assignment.
  • Ask students to circle topics that they think would work for a 3 or 5 page paper/ project
    As they choose topics, discuss if they are too broad or too narrow. (lead into next page)
    This slide can serve as a way to get the students thinking about what is covered in Part B of the course, and also a short topic list to choose from if they are stuck and can’t pick on their own.
  • Have students list possible topics on the board and have students state if it is ok, or if it could be more specific and offer some suggestions…
  • Use an example from material that has already been covered in the course.
    Show how a topic can be narrowed down, and then lead that to the second part question 1: Why is it a turning point?
  • Have students use whiteboard to complete number 2 for this sample event. What would they include?
    Explain that this is the point of the research: to convince the reader that their event was a turning point in US History.
  • Have students look at the research project format options
    Use polling to see which format that are thinking about choosing: A-D
