At the end of every unit we do these formal assessment projects called “puzzle pieces.” Each piece has to have 7 components to it, the most important one is the connection.
The connection explains how this current puzzle piece (unit) was caused by the puzzle piece (unit) that came before it.
It shows me that the students have a true understanding of not just the current unit but the pervious one as well.
At the end of the year we put all of our puzzle pieces together to make one big historical analyzation: that history is in fact NOT a straight line. One event breaks off to cause another event which causes two more.
I LOVE when I get puzzle pieces that look like this!!!
Ughhh im so bad at keeping up with the april study challenge! I’ll do better for may
25 (Tu). Do you get nervous for exams? If so, how do you combat this?
Ans: I get really really nervous for exams to the point that my hand would start sweating buckets. However, I combat this by telling myself “ I can pass this exam, I can do this as long as I studied well enough” ( if that makes sense l o l)
My sister told me about how she adores her social studies teacher because he is one sassy old man.
Then she continued to tell me about how they were given a list of stuff they should know about in class and Hungary was on there. A girl in her class thought it was pronounced like hungry. So the girl said, “wow, I can’t believe there’s a place named after me.”
The teacher so smoothly replied with, “wow, I didn’t know there was a place named annoying.”
2|23|17 5:19 // this was my spread from a couple weeks ago, when it was snowing like crazy and school was closed（＾∇＾）. It’s my bullet journal spread so I was still tryna figure out wtf to do, but I think I’m going to continue it ^^. I used @journalsanctuary ’s cute af Christmas and space tapes because how could I not djsjs
In my exam feedback my teacher told me to work on making my essays value multiple points of view, so this is a page of my essay plan explaining why conservatism isn’t an ideology that favours the privileged and prosperous 💡
April 1st, 2017 - Studying on the floor because it lets me spread everything out (and as you can see, I have a lot of papers). April snuck up on me and my APWH exam is next month! I haven’t even started studying yet.
This map was covered for a geography quiz, but one student joked that it was a visual representation of Donald Trump’s wall. To which another student replied, “good, we’re giving part of Texas back to them.”
Teaching yellow journalism, imperialism, nationalism, militarism, and all of the crap that lead to WWI has never been this easy. It’s not even a stretch to have to think of examples anymore. I start talking about any of these things, and kids just nod knowingly. They don’t even really need to watch that much news. Their world is saturated with it.
I don’t know that I am entirely happy about this development, however….
