Product Description
Check out this clearly laid out assignment designed to help students make connections in their World History curriculum to events making history across the globe today. The assignment has seven specific jobs that help students focus their reading/exploration of informational texts, write thoroughly and concisely, plot geographic locations on a map of the world, and prepare for class discussions. Special attention is paid to developing the following student skills: close reading, highlighting and annotating, summarizing most important points, crafting a Stand Alone Paragraph (SAP), making connections between distant past and today (cause and effect, change over time), and familiarity with maps. The assignment is heavily grounded in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and is versatile and tweak-able based on your needs. Could easily be adapted for a US History, World Languages, Civics or Cultural Geography class. The assignment includes easy to use rubrics for accurate and efficient grading.
