Unit Intervention Project
Look over your quiz scores. On which quiz did you perform the most poorly? With which chapter do you feel the least confident? That will be you focus. All projects should include parts one and two below:
I.-Write a “review book” chapter on the content. Think about this as something you might find in a Princeton Review/5 Steps/Barrons test prep book on the content. As far as content, if there is a Key Concept about it, it needs to be included. If you are doing this, pick at least one of the HTS to focus on and include a “cut out” to highlight the HTS in detail. This could be a “Historical Thinking Skills” paragraph (s), or a chart/graphic organizer/visual to emphasize the HTS. Oh, and try to make it fun to read.
II.-Same as above, but keep it conversational in tone and record it into an audio podcast
III.-Make a video. In terms of content, if there is a key concept about it, it should be included. You can do this with whatever sort of TV production skills you have, or you could make a PowerPoint and record a video of it with voiceover using Officemix (a free PowerPoint plug in which will require your home computer and will produce a better quality video) or screencast-o-matic.com (a free web based app that does not produce as high of quality video). You will also need to create some sort of graphic organizer or that goes along with your video. You can team up with one other person or work individually.
Each of the themes are explored individually (along with the Key Concepts and HTS) in the Course and Exam Description CLICK HERE.
