Task 2: BrainPop on the American Revolution. As you watch the video, please take at least 5 bullet point notes on a separate piece of paper and then write a 5-sentence summary of the video. Username is 123dog and password is 123cat. Here is a rubric for this assignment.
Early Finishers: Complete any missing work you may have, read silently, work on Achieve, or watch this video.
We will be working on the background essay and Doc A/B of the Valley Forge DBQ. We will work to answer the question of whether or not you would have quit the Continental Army if you were a soldier at this infamous battle.
After we annotate and go over the documents together, you need to work with your table groups to answer the questions.
At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes, I met the objective because I was able to annotate and I am confident I answered at least 8 of the 9 questions correctly."
Exit Ticket (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes:
On your Do Now paper, list two reasons why battles like Valley Forge were difficult. How are battles different today than during the Revolution?
Complete any work you were not able to finish in class today, because I know there was a lot to accomplish. Your homework over the long weekend is going to be to write a CEREAL paragraph based on our Valley Forge DBQ. You will be getting an outline Wednesday, but if you would like to start tonight that might be a smart idea.
