Warm Up:

I wasn’t very happy with the quality of answers from the warm up yesterday or yesterday’s activity. So I believe we need to take a step back. I am not going to have us do a warm up today in order to make room for today’s activity.

Task #1 

Download, save, and share the Cornell note document below.

Assignment -> Cornell Notes – Terrorism – Your Name

Task #2

This is a bit old fashioned, but I am going to walk you through the two lectures below written by college professors in order to give you a better background on the topic of Terrorism. While I go through these lectures you will be writing down notes on your online Cornell note document you downloaded in Task #1.

Lecture #1 -> Charles Feer – Department of Justice -> Lecture – Terrorism (A History)

Lecture #2 -> Dr. Chris Peerson -> Lecture – War, Violence, and Modernity

Task #3

Now, equipped with this new information at your disposal we will be going through the 12 major discussion questions again. Go to and enter room “A89559b4”. It is very important you understand this next piece. For each question you need to make one claim to open your paragraph and then have three sentences of support backing up the claim. If at the end of this activity all participants follow these directions we can stop. If anyone does not follow these guidelines we will be doing these questions again.
