Friday, May 18, 2018 7:54 AM -0700By: David Rosenberg
S#1 CONTEMPORARY ISSUES FINAL: TEACH SHORT LESSON DUE: Tuesday 5/29             

PROMPT/DIRECTIONS:

What Contemporary Issue are you passionate about and would like to research/teach in detail?


We have discussed and studied many contemporary issues over S#1, but you have utter freedom to pick and propose ANY topic to Mr. R. I suggest you organize your proposal and be concise.

YOU WILL NEED A TOPIC to propose by the end of class bell on Monday 5/22 so WE CAN BEGIN RESEARCH and PREPARING for the final lesson.
*Remember...This will take focus in class to research, get materials to teach class prepared, and fine-tune your lesson plan/resources (how will you teach the class and keep them engaged?).
Start now and get a jump on the process!!!

REQís (Checklist)
1) Research:  
  • MLA Works Cited (at least 5 sources web or book and should reflect roughly 3 hours)
2) Teaching Device:
  • Power Point, Prezi, Google Slides, poster, in class handout, interactive activity, *OR ART.
3) Lesson Plan: Clear Goal with solid focus on this goal.
  • (I will provide a sample and scaffold or feel free to adapt my board at a glance
4) In Class Activity:
  • This should be a strategy/technique for engaging the class/remember the content. *Art = critique
5) Teach Final Lesson to Class:
  • Present and deliver an engaging 10 (12 max) Minute lesson to the class with teaching device.
  • ART PROJECTS WILL TEACH CONCEPT AND CRITIQUE SYMBOLISM OF ARTWORK
*NOTE: You will be provided with time in class over this week (more than the 3 hours of research required) to work on the Final Lesson BUT…
You must be focused, not distract others, and produce solid work each day or lose credit.
*10 points each day in class based on above and NOT arriving tardy.

I know you will all do great, but we need to remain focused in class and narrow down topics for concise teaching because this is based on time management (it goes quickly on “stage”).
