We have already worked our way through the rubric for the seminar. Today we are going to discuss the role of the audience, and review the process that has been put in place to help you (so please take advantage of it!). We are also going to look at some of the pitfalls associated with Power Point (and for those who need a handy reference, I've included a Basic Power Point How To).
We will be also be working together to start our journey to understanding World War II. This will be essentially a Socratic (teacher-centred) lesson, but you will be asked to not only pay attention but also to contribute your thoughts and prior knowledge. Board notes can be found here.
We will also be watching the National Geographic video on the Rise of Hitler (you can use this handout to guide your learning).
HUGE REMINDER: You should be working on both your seminar and continuing to compile research your essay for homework. Due dates are approaching a lot quicker than you think.
