Notebook Setup Day

Monday 2/5/18

Today’s Objective(s): SWBAT

  1. Maintain organization of their evidence of learning

Do Now – 1 minute

Completely clear your desk except for something to write with.

LESSON – 40 minutes

Today we will spend the entire period working as a class to set up our notebooks. Please do not work ahead, or write anything in your notebooks unless or until I instruct you to do so.

These notebooks are going to serve as vital learning tools as we move through the rest of the year. But to do so, they need to be set up properly, and used as intended. We’ll go over exactly how to set up and use these notebooks, beginning today.

From this day forward, we’ll use these notebooks daily (with a few exceptions), but again, only as instructed. And in so doing, we’ll develop the habits  and routines critical to effective learning.

Closing – 2 minutes

Pair up with one other person at your table and recite to him/her human rights #19-25. Switch and listen to your partner do the same.


Respond to the Basecamp Message Board item titled “Homework: Monday 2/5/18.

Unit Objectives

  1. Identify the 30 HRs and articulate why human rights are important to them as individuals
  2. Order and explain the historical evolution of HRs using primary sources
  3. Identify historical and/or modern day examples of HRs violations
  4. Synthesize understanding about existing HRs, and about HRs issues in our community to develop new, relevant ideas that connect to our community

““What if each of us were motivated by curiosity instead <of doing the bare minimum>? Or generosity? Perhaps we could learn to see possibility instead of risk..”
