9/11/17: How do these facts fit together?

BELLRINGER: Read the following facts and try to think of the profession the facts are describing. You may do research on your iPad to help.

  • I spend a lot of time in the dirt.
  • I’m not a historian, but historians would have a hard time working without me.
  • I can tell great historical stories even if I don’t have written records.
  • You probably think I do all of my work in Egypt or the Middle East. But I actually work all over the world — even South Dakota.
  • Harrison Ford and I don’t share the same profession, though you might think we do.

BELL RINGERS:

1st Period: Angelo D. (McKenzie H.)

3rd Period: Gianni F. (Avelina G.)

WHAT WE’RE LEARNING:

Today, we’ll talk about an important history profession and then work on a project turning facts into a story line.

WHY WE’RE LEARNING IT:

By going through the process of putting together a historical “puzzle,” we can get a more thorough understanding of what we’re reading when we read a history text.

BY THE END OF CLASS:

I can put a set of facts together in a coherent narrative.
