  1. Understanding By Design Wiggins and McTighe • Three Levels of Understanding • Worth being familiar • Important to know and do • Enduring understanding

  2. Worth Being Familiar • H.W. Read and annotate “Presidential Reconstruction”. Here are your learning objectives for this reading: • What was the Freedman’s Bureau and what did it do? • What was life like for freed men and women? What were the steps for and away from full citizenship for African Americans?

  3. Important to Know and do • What is the difference between a criminal trial and a civil trial? We will compare the two including the burden of proof in each type of case • How can we search more effectively using Google?

  4. Enduring Understandings and accompanying assessments • Unit: Post Civil War – Reconstruction • EQ - Did the Civil War and Reconstruction significantly improve the lives of African Americans? • Final assessment: Five Paragraph Essay

  5. Enduring Understandings and accompanying assessments (Continued) • Unit: Our justice system • Essential Question: Is our system of justice fair? • Final assessment: Test and a Mock Trial

  6. Enduring Understandings and accompanying assessments (Continued) • Unit: Economics • EQ - Going forward in the twenty- first century, what should our (U.S.) energy plan be? • Round Table Debate, Test, and Five Paragraph Essay

  7. Enduring Understandings and accompanying assessments (Continued) • Unit: Civil War - Soldier’s Heart • Essential Question: What were the costs of the Civil War? • Letters from Soldier’s to Home

  8. My big questions that I use to help me write the Big EQS for units in SS • 1. Are we becoming the nation we set out to be? (Primary Course EQ) • 2. What is the price of progress? • 3. Can individuals really make a difference? (What determines the decisions people make? How have those decisions influenced American history?)

  9. My big questions that I use to help me write the Big EQS for units in SS (Continued) • 4. How did the United States become the world power? (Why don’t we just mind our own business? Should commitment to the ideals in the Constitution extend beyond our borders?) • 5. Historically, why has there always been a struggle between security and liberty? • 6. How has the government’s commitment to “establish justice” changed over time? (How has the definition of “justice” changed historically to become more inclusive?)
