21st Century Skills<br />•What are New Jersey’s Core Curriculum Standards?<br />•How will these standards be used in the classroom?<br />•How will technology be integrated into our classroom?<br /> <br />
Active Citizenship in 21st Century</li></li></ul><li>The Great Debate Project<br />One of the topics your children will be learning about in my class is the American Revolution. Using strand 8.1.8.A.3, I have designed a project to incorporate Social Studies standards and technological skills .<br /> •The class will be split into two groups (Loyalists and Patriots). <br /> •The students will then work on a multimedia presentation (example: power point) to aid in the presentation of their argument. A brief paper will be completed summarizing their key facts.<br /> •Each group will research their topics using online databases and books to come up with a strong argument with historic facts and documents in support of their assigned party.<br /> <br />
The Great Debate Project- Continued<br /><ul><li>The goal of this project is to make a convincing argument to me as to which party I should sign allegiance with if we were to travel back in time to the days leading up to the Revolution.</li></ul> <br /> The team that wins the debate will receive one extra point on their final grade!<br />http://www.thefreedomtrail.org/visitor/boston-massacre.html<br />
