Agenda: Monday and Tuesday Sept. 27 and 28, 2010

Mr. Duez will be out on Monday and Tuesday.  He is presenting and teaching Social Studies teachers in our district for professional development.  He will return on Wednesday.  Ms. Guillory is our substitute and she is AWESOME.  Be on your best behavior.

Monday’s Plans
WORLD HISTORY (Period 3, 5, 6) PLANS:
1.  Take Attendance while a student passes out the video questions for “Athens Subway.”
2.  Play the DVD, “Athens Subway.”  The students need to answer the questions on the handout on a separate sheet of paper.  Explain that they need to pay attention and answer the questions, if they miss one, that is OK.  I am not looking for perfection, but I do want solid evidence that they were watching the video.
At the end they can answer the questions at the bottom and if there is time you can discuss those questions with the class.  The video should take most of the period.

Tuesday's Plans
World  History (3, 5, 6) PLANS:
1.  Take attendance.
2.  I have a 10 minute video on the Greek Olympics for the students to watch first.  It will be on the DVD on my desk.  It is for chapter 4.  You can use the DVD player to show it.  Students can take notes and watch.  It is not long.
3.  After the video, pass out the document by Pericles called “Funeral Oration.”  Have the students read it silently and annotate the text.  They can follow the directions at the top of the page.  
4.  If there is time at the end of the period, and students have done a good job, they can form groups of 4 and discuss the document.
Explain that we will be using Campbell’s “6 Characteristics of a Leader” and Pericles’s “Funeral Oration” in our Socratic Seminar on Wed/Thu. when Mr. Duez returns.
