PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a lesson designed to teach students to practice summarzing and synthesizing key ideas of terms in a World History course. The idea behind CRTs (Context-Relevant Terms) is to move beyond simply completing definitions or summaries of key terms in history, but to help them practice the skill of reading a text and explaining the significance (relevance) of a term within the context of a historical period or topic. For each CRT, the students are required to complete five steps, which ends up being a two sentence description. The five steps students must complete are as follows:

1. Relation Statement
2. Time reference
3. Geographical reference
4. Definition
5. Relevance statement

The lesson included in this package includes a ten-slide power point slideshow that teaches students how to write CRTs (including examples) and a rubric for grading codes that can be used for assessing the student work. This is a great skill-building activity and teaches students to read and summarize the importance of historical terms instead of simply rewriting a definition.
