  • 1. Notebook Set up September 14, 2009
  • 2. February 2, 2010
    • Objective: Students will be able to get organized for Civics class by setting up their interactive notebooks.
    • Do Now: What do you think of when you hear the word “history”? What do you think when you hear the word “civics”?(5 minutes)
  • 3. History Is…
    • Formal definition: a written record of past events
    • Ms. Avashia’s definition: stories about events that happened before the moment we’re living in now.
    • Time when history happened: 1 minute ago-5000 years ago when writing was invented.
  • 4. Civics Is…
    • Official Definition: the study of civic affairs and the duties and rights of citizenship
    • Ms. Avashia’s Definition: the study of how our government works, how it both protects and punishes us, and what we have to do to make our country a good place for us to live.
    • Time When Civics Happened: RIGHT NOW!
  • 5. So What’s the Connection?
    • To understand Civics, you have to know a little history. You’ll learn how our government was formed, and how different groups of people in this country fought to get rights that were denied to them. So think about this class as a combination of then and now.
  • 6. Students Speak…
    • What words stand out to you on the Word Cloud?
    • What kinds of advice do you think students gave you, based on the words in the word cloud?
    • Based on the word cloud, what do you think are the most important things you should do in order to successfully survive Civics?
  • 7. The Interactive Notebook Is…
    • A place for you to keep all of the information you learn during Civics class
    • A place for you to write down your thoughts and questions about what we’re learning
    • A study tool
    • A reference you can use in high school, when you see some of these topics again.
  • 8. Observing Interactive Notebooks
