Guiding Question:
What did we learn in Semester 1? 


Students will work to increase their Lexile levels by determining the central ideas of an Achieve article about history recorded through sound, completing all five tabs including summarizing the Dig Deeper section, and score at least 75% on the activity. 

Students will review information from Semester 1 by working with their table groups to complete a study guide for their final with at least 80% accuracy. 

RH.6-8.2 - Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source
ELD B.6 - Read closely to determine how meaning is made.

Do Now (Voice Level 0) 5 minutes: 
On a half sheet of paper, write today's objectives in your own words. What are the activities you will be completing and how do you know whether or not you completed them? 

Whole Group (Voice Level 0) 10 minutes: 
Intro to the final and what's expected for Wednesday-Friday. 

Independent (Voice Level 0) 40 minutes: 

Task 1: Achieve3000, "The Sounds of History" You need to complete all 5 tabs for this article. 

- You only need to summarize paragraphs that are more than two sentences! You may write your summaries as bullet points for my class. 

- Your thought question answer only needs to be 3-4 sentences. 

- Achieve articles are summative grades. You cannot get higher than an NP if you did not summarize. Yes you need to summarize the Dig Deeper section! In order to complete a "makeup Achieve" you need to also complete all 5 tabs and the summaries on your makeup article as well. 

Task 2: Watch this video about George Washington. 

Early Finishers: Go to CNN, NewsELA, Free Rice, work on your PBL Action Plan, or complete any makeup work. 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objectives 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 this objective because I completed all five tabs for the article, summarized everything including the dig deeper, and I scored 88% on the activity!" 

Direct/Collaborative (Voice Level .5 - 1) 40 minutes: 
You will be completing the study guide with your table groups. All answers can be found by looking through my digital agendas and all questions on the study guide are organized by unit (meaning you wont have a question about the Revolution followed by a question about the colonies). 

You will also receive a cheat sheet that you can use on the test. Fit as much information as you can on the notecard, it will be the ONLY thing you will be allowed to use on the test. 

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: 
What was the most interesting thing you learned during Semester 1? 


If you have no exams to study for or an abundance of free time, you may also get started on your Winter Break packet. I will be going over this in more detail after your final, but here are the instructions if you are interested.
