All students must do both Appetizers. We "share appetizers" so we "share" this assignment in that everyone does it. Worth 25 points. We use content maps so students use those to complete this activity.
Students get their choice of entree'. This activity is worth 50 points. Some technology will require them to have an account so I make the homework the night before we do the entree to preview the different forms of technology they can use so they know what they want to do once they get to class, create an account if necessary, which makes less time wasted in class.
The side dish is also student choice. This is 25 points. This is no technology at all. The cube pattern and the Facebook pages are the 2nd and 3rd pages of the document. For the Facebook, they must include in their "post", who has the authority, citizens roles and a country that is an example of that form of government. The ads and friends must be related to the form of government they selected.
This activity usually takes 2-3 days depending on your group, but I have them do the activities in order so they must complete and turn in each to me before they can move on. You really only need 1 day in a lab and that is for the entree.
