How will students be asked to exhibit their understanding throughout this unit? How will you communicate their progress?
How will you evaluate the learning that has taken place at the end of the unit?
Students will independently read documents relating to the ratification debate in class, and students will then write miniature analyses of each of the documents to identify the key elements of each (listed above). We will then review these analyses to correct any misunderstandings and begin to piece the documents into our broader historical narrative.
We will have weekly assessments testing more basic knowledge (who, what, when, where, why, etc.). These will be multiple-choice per school directive. We will also have a DBQ that will require students to demonstrate their skills at document analysis and writing.
