Period 2 – World History (S.D.A.I.E. – E.L.L.) Lesson Plan (11-7-2016)

Period 2 - World History


Warm Up:

Look at the political cartoon below. You can click to enlarge it. Question: “What is the cartoon communicating? Why is it focused on England? ”

IMPERIALISM CARTOON, 1882. 'The Devilfish in Egyptian Waters.' An American cartoon from 1882 depicting John Bull (England) as the octopus of imperialism grabbing land on every continent.

Task #1

Today, right after the warm up, individuals and partners will finish presenting their work on their Imperialism project. The sign up sheet is still on the board for those who are going to present. If you do not present your work that will immediately drop your grade 50%. The rubric guide below is a good way to understand how you will be graded. While individuals and partners present we will all be taking Cornell notes on their work addressing the following areas: Who, What, When, Where, Why and Historical Significance.
