African American History, Oct 13,15
In African American History we have divided the class into 4 groups. The groups will spend one day researching either the Great Awakening, language, music, folk literature, African American impact on colonial culture, and black women in colonial America. Tuesday will be spent in groups reading the materials, synthesizing the information, and preparing to share the information with the class. Wednesday is a shortened day and I will have mercy on my 10th graders who take PSATs. On thursday the students will share the important information of their assigned topic to the rest of the class in a graded presentation. Students will be responsible to record the notes of the other presenting groups. On Friday we will have a short quiz on the information.
