Day 9 - Funday Friday!!!

U.S. History II  - Period 1: 
Essential Questions:

-How do we think like an Historian?
-Has the West been romanticized?
-Does racial equality depend on government action?
-Can the "white man's conquest" of Native Americans be justified?

1. Romanticizing the West Activity Continued:
Yesterday the class will break up into different groups of students in a jigsaw group and they will investigate specific website that I have selected to build an understanding of Romanticizing the West. Everyone in the group must pick ONE primary source from the link below once you have been put into groups.  Then every individual in the group will be responsible for filling out the Images of the West analysis and then compare and contrast all of the images the entire group has collected within the group.

2. The group will then pick one of the primary sources that you all feel has the best potential to illustrate a clear perspective of what the West was supposed to look like for the entire class and the GROUP WILL be responsible for presenting that primary source image on the big screen using the projector.

Peace One Day
International Day of Peace
Peace Events on Peace Day
The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) Organization

The Nobel Peace Prize

1. Your plan should be to finalize your plan on how you will make Burlington High School aware of Peace Day.  You have exactly only a few days to make this happen and I will give you time in class to coordinate.  Contribute and implement a plan in our brain-storming session!!!
