Today you will meet with the students for your other revolution (revolution #2). Your discussion will follow the same procedures as the revolution you discussed in the previous class time. Afterwards, begin drawing some comparisons to the 2 revolutions you are researching by listing these similarities and differences in the table provided for this within your research portfolio. This will help you begin to check whether you are understanding the nature of these revolutions and will help you better gauge whether you need to do further research or whether you are at the point to start finalizing your research.
We will continue the one-on-one teacher-student check-ins today to discuss your research process and the research portfolio. Check-ins will continue to be based on the sign ups for students who wanted to meet first. The goal is to meet with every student prior to the research portfolio being due on Dec. 7/8. Even if you did not sign up, you will eventually be meeting one-on-one with the teacher. Priority goes to those who signed up to request to meet.
Today you will continue your research on your 2 revolutions. You will have the opportunity to check in with the teacher for either a group check-in (based on your selected revolution) or a one-on-one meeting, if needed.
You will also do a group check-in with others researching the same revolution as you so that you can discuss your understanding of the revolution and share tips for finding sources, etc.
Helpful Links for today's Class:
HW: Continue research; Finish taking notes on at least 6 sources.
For homework, be sure you have at least 6 sources.
Consider also collecting a variety of data (this includes images)--you may find this helpful for your summative explanatory writing.
Be sure you have completed all required sections of note-taking including QCI (especially the INSIGHTS--very important!). Also, you should have a minimum of 2 sources you found on your own (not provided to you by the teacher) -- don't forget you will need to also complete OPVL evaluation for 2 sources.
Next class (Nov. 29/30) we will work on making a list of similarities and differences, evaluating the effectiveness of the research questions and begin summarizing the research portfolio (summary section) so come to class prepared by having most of your notes completed.
Today you go back to your Summative 1 Reflection to take a look at the goals you set for yourself for research. Take a look at the goal and consider how you will work towards that goal and demonstrate the skills necessary to meet your goal in this summative research portfolio.
You will partner up with someone to review and give feedback on their supporting questions they have developed PRIOR to starting research. Afterwards, students should either revise or add to their supporting questions (if necessary) or begin their research.

Today we will be looking at what a revolution is (types of revolutions), causes of revolutions, process and consequences (both intended and unintended).
You will begin to explore the list of revolutions you may choose from and decide on 2 similar types of revolutions you would like to research.

Today we will be practicing a few skills in class. Students will be formatively assessed on these skills and will be given feedback on their performance in demonstrating these research and writing skills.
We will work on the following skills:
