LOOKING BENEATH THE SURFACE – Part ONE
- The Significant Concept/Enduring Understanding we want you to consider during this term is:
“There’s always more to know.”
- Respond to this statement in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Use your real (first) name when you sign in. Use at least three complete sentences for each response
- Do you agree or disagree with the statement Why?
- If you agree with it, do you think the statement is important? Why or why not? If you disagree, discuss that as well.
- List three things about which you feel you should know more. These could be concepts, places, ideas, things that can be learned about and investigated. Write what specifically you feel you should know more about, why you feel this is important to know, and how you should go about discovering the new information. Provide a link (URL) to an article, news story or online written work that deals with each of the three things (three links total).
- The Unit Question for this term is:
How can I become more aware of contemporary issues in this world?
- What are “contemporary” issues? What does this mean?
- Many contemporary issues have a history behind them. How can a contemporary issue also be a historical issue?
- Describe two global or local issues which are present today but which also have a detailed and lengthy past. How the past has influenced the present situation?
GOAL: For FRIDAY Jan. 13 – Your responses to this will be typed, name and class at top of page, A4, paragraph form (this means complete sentences not bullets). Use details and examples in your responses, as you will need to discuss and share specific things.
