HW: Finish your product! Due Tues. May 21 @3pm
You have 2 options today:
Conceptual understanding summative vlog:
IF you have not yet done the conceptual understanding vlog, please do that first. It is due at the end of class today (A Block: Tues. May 14; B Block: Wed. May 15). Try to find a quiet place to record.
I want to remind you that you should be sure somewhere towards the beginning of the vlog you should introduce your issue and state how 2 or more concepts are related to the issue (i.e., why the issue is "global", so pervasive, or challenging to resolve as a result of the relationship of something you've identified with these concepts). Be sure you are focused on explaining the issue through the lens of these concepts and that you use supporting examples (i.e. case studies and examples you looked at in your research). Use more than 1 example--remember, you are trying to prove that this is true in more than one geographic location and in more than one time in history or currently--this issue and the relationship and problems are not isolated to just one time period or one geographic location. Your conceptual understanding explanation should help to show that a pattern in the world exists.
Also, state why this matters. Why should we care about the issue? Why should we recognise this pattern and examine this issue through the lens of these concepts? How does recognizing this pattern help us understand the complexity of the issue and/or solve this issue?
You can look use 2 or more macro concepts --or-- you can use 1 macro and 1 or more micro concept. These are listed above (and on the rubric below).
Once you've uploaded your vlog onto SeeSaw, work on your product (website, trifold board, video, etc.) Remember, you can integrate some of the things you are working on in English class into this product as well. You can use sources from English, poetry and different genres, etc.--its not just okay to do so, but would be fantastic to see you find a way to do this. Work smarter--not harder. ;)
