This is a multi-genre lesson plan over the Age of Exploration with primary source and secondary source DBQ's that can also be used in a socratic circle discussion.
Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.
Present claims and findings, emphasizing salient points in a focused, coherent manner with relevant evidence, sound valid reasoning, and well-chosen details; use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume, and clear pronunciation.
Acknowledge new information expressed by others, and, when warranted, qualify or justify their own views in light of the evidence presented.
Pose questions that connect the ideas of several speakers and respond to others’ questions and comments with relevant evidence, observations, and ideas.
Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 8 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.
