To have students evaluate historical documents as intelligent consumers of information.
Middle school students will find primary and/or secondary source documents and create questions for their global peers to answer online.
1. Basic operations and concepts
2. Social, ethical, and human issues
3. Technology productivity tools
4. Technology communications tools
Theme: Change (except
for foreign language questions)
Participants will find one to three primary or secondary documents that relate to change within their curriculum. For each document they will create two questions. Please see question ideas and project examples. The images and questions will be submitted electronically to the project coordinators. Teachers will include the state standards that support the student work. All materials are due by November 30, 2002.
The documents and questions will be posted on this web site to be used as a resource. All visitors are welcome to submit their answers for publication. We will try to post as many answers as possible. It will be beneficial for students to see the varying perspectives of people from different generations around the globe. In addition, visitors may choose to have their answers evaluated by Mrs. McMullan and her class (see project rubric). We will try to evaluate as many questions that time allows.
