  • Quill Pack #3 US History: Causes of the American Revolution Sentence Combining Practice due Thu. 10/15
  • Historical Journal #1: Intro - due Fri., 10/16
     

Schedule –

  1. First day of Q2
  2. Set up Historical Journal:
    - if you are using a physical notebook, use your ELA Notebook (or a completely new notebook – up to you). Start a new section titled: Historical Journal Project. Do not put anything except for the journal entries on these pages. You will need to take a photo of your journal entries and attach to a Google Doc to turn in when asked to do so.
    - if you are using a digital notebook, use a Google Doc saved in your Drive. Title it: Historical Journal Project. You will need to copy/paste onto a new Google Doc in order to share small sections/journal entries when asked to do so
  3. Historical Journal prompt #1: This is your introduction to the journal
    This is where you introduce yourself. Include your persona’s:
    name,
    age,
    members of their family,
    their location within the 13 colonies, on the ship to the Colonies, etc.

Ch. 3 in the History book begins its timeline in America with the year 1762. You may choose 1762-1775 for your first journal entry, keeping in mind we will only progress forward in years (no backtracking, unless it is a Flashback to an earlier time within that journal entry).

 

***McAlary’s example for HJ #1:

  • I looked up names popular in the 1770s (Google search)  
  • I chose to look up Stamp Act Congress attendees because I wanted my first persona to be related to a Founding Father or patriot, and I wanted to hail from a Northern or Middle Colony.
  • My persona, Henrietta Dickinson, is the fictional daughter of John Dickinson. Her sister is married to a fictional character named Nate Greene, whom I am modelling after Nathaneal Greene (Revolutionary War hero).

    Reading Ms. McAlary’s HJ#1 (located in Teams > Files and also in Google Classroom > Resources might help you in understanding how to get started.

  1. Answer questions regarding the hyperdocs, the Quill activities pack, etc.
  2. Several of you have still not yet turned in your completed New England hyperdoc (23 students total). Get it done; turn it in in Google Classroom.
  3. Let me make a very important point: the work in Core is not a sprint, it is a marathon. Do quality work, not quick work.
    Again, if you are not using the resources given within the assignments (you are instead Googling answers) not only will McAlary know, but you will lose points, possibly all the way to a 0. It is not a race. I care that you get work finished on time (by the due date) but do not care one bit if you’re the first one done.
