*Unit S.M.A.R.T. Goal written with this downloadable guide -> SmartGoals Template for Educators
Students will take a quiz on the 9/11 video they saw and analyzed yesterday in addition to researching the events before and after the attack.
*Lesson objective written with this downloadable guide -> Writing Learning Objectives Guide
There will be no warm up today. I will be with Mr. Nelson and some other teachers in “A” building.
Yesterday you were told that there would be a quiz today based on the video yesterday. Go to M.Socrative.com and enter room “A89559b4”. The quiz will automatically close at 10:15 A.M. After 10:15 A.M. you will have to move to task #2 below. I fully expect you to rewatch sections each other of the film and discuss when taking the quiz and have taken that into account when I wrote it. Notice you do not have all period to accomplish Task #1.
Video Link -> 9-11 – 102 Minutes that changed the world.
Once you finish the quiz you will go into your google account and follow the directions below. Make sure to share this to me at MrTylersLessons@gmail.com
Step #1 – Create a new Google Slide
Step #2 – Title the Slideshow ” The 9/11 Attack – Period 3 – Your Name”.
Step #3 – Research what happened on your Chromebook and create a slideshow that answers the following questions:
#1 – What planning did the terrorists do in order to get ready for 9/11?
#2 – Why did they choose the targets that they did?
#3 – Would you consider what they planned to do a success or failure?
#4 – How did the United States respond to this attack?
#5 – What country or countries did the United States blame for these attacks?
#6 – Who specifically did the U.S. consider to be behind the attacks? Why?
#7 – What were the political and economical impacts to the United States due to the events of 9/11?
EXTRA CREDIT CHALLENGE (+100 points)
Period 3 is still having problems putting their Chromebooks away correctly (that means in the slots right side up and plugged in). As a challenge today I will add 100 points to everyone’s grade if at the end of the period you put all the Chromebooks away correctly and then someone takes a picture of our cart and e-mails it to me at MrTylersLessons@gmail.com to prove that your class put the chromebooks away perfectly. If no photo proof is sent then no one gets the extra credit.
