Entering class:

    • Check in with Mr. Rimmey and Draw for Random Placement to being in Inner or Outer Circle
    • If not prepared, inform Mr. Rimmey, and when class is told to shift into the circle, pull a desk along wall and sit there.
  • Questions are lobbed in by outer circle to inner circle

A eight second count by Mr. Rimmey will be carried out before each question is answered for the first time.

People must signal if they want to answer

Item will be tossed to each person to speak

Outer circle may not join in the discussion. They can listen, potentially develop follow up questions, and/or take notes

When a topic is exhausted/no longer productive, a new question will be tossed in by a member of the outer circle

This process will continue for half the class, then circles flip and roles reverse

The new inner circle may not revisit a previous topic, unless to make a basic correction on an error in fact by the previous inner circle (that was not corrected by the members of the previous circle)

Grading

Must speak on two topics (in substantial way) for full score of “100.”

If only speak to one even if multiple times, the score earned is a “50”

If don’t speak, or what you say lacks substance (“I agree” is not substantive), the score earned is a “7 ½” (for a maximum total of “15.)”

If unprepared, the score is a “10” (if engaged in note taking)

Decorum

    • Always be respectful
    • First few weeks, help Mr. Rimmey out by giving your first/last name when you speak – or give the name of the person you are calling upon to speak by saying something along the lines “Mr. Johnson, what do you believe was the cause of….” (or something similar).

Decorum (continued)

    • A person selected does not have to speak if they do not want to
    • A person may only speak if recognized by the passage of the shared object
    • If the outer-circle changes the topic too quickly, the inner circle may politely ask for more time on the current topic.

End of class

After both circles have discussed topics, the last 5 minutes are for total room discussion, summary of notes, and/or writing summaries in your notebooks.

Please note, not all potential topic areas you may have planned upon may be discussed, or may be discussed by the Inner Circle when you are in it. You may be trapped in the outer circle and cannot take part.

Costa’s Levels of Inquiry (Questioning)

  • 3 Levels: Recall, Analysis/Inference, and Synthesis
    • Questions offered should tend toward Level Two and Three, for they are the most challenging, and the most interesting.
Mr. Rimmey\'s A.P. history Classes Inner-Outer Circle

Level One: Recall

  • These are simple facts
  • They are explicitly in the text of readings, or they are things about which there is no doubt or debate.
    • Who won the U.S. Presidential election of 1860?
    • What was the capital of the Confederate States of America?
    • Who led the Union Army’s “March to the Sea?”

Level Two: Analysis/Inference

  • The act of deriving a logical conclusion based upon premises that are known or accepted as true.
  • Things that are understood, but are not explicitly said within the text.
  • These questions are about how and why?
    • What was it about Atlanta that made it a key target of the Union during the Civil War?
    • Why did Lincoln emancipate the slaves only in limited areas initially during the Civil War

Level Three: Synthesis

  • These are questions that go beyond the text and inquire about things to which there are no definite answers.
    • Was Lincoln’s death necessary to allow the nation to heal following the Civil War?
    • Were Sherman’s tactics in his “March to the Sea” too extreme and thus helped to extend the North-South division longer after the war?
