Today, you will be reading children's story books to help get you thinking about and understanding the value of storytelling in history and the value it has had in passing down information within cultures. We will explore what we can learn about a culture by reading, hearing and learning about their stories.
Link to today's lesson and presentation:
HW: (formative assessment): improve your "meanwhile in..." story of your endangered culture
- You may want to go into Schoology where you posted the first draft of your “meanwhile in…” story during class earlier this week (and received feedback from a Critical Friend). You can copy/paste the draft you’ve written and then continue building on and revising.
- Be sure your story includes the following elements:
- Historical context
- Change and Continuity Over Time
- Culture Traits - Way of Life
- Interactions with other cultures
- Try to add further historical details that brings the story into the modern-day era. Include what you have researched and learned about what has happened to this culture during industrialization. While adding historical context, try to stay true to writing this in story format (you do not need to cite sources in this story but be sure the story is factually correct).
- Be descriptive! Help create visualization so the reader can “see” and “feel” the story of what life was like for this culture and how this has changed over time. Help them understand what their current life is like. Make the reader want to feel like they want to know how the story will end--this is what will make it a compelling story worth telling and reading.
