Weekly Update: Week of January 25, 2015

Overview:

On Monday students learned about the Silk Road. We did a quick telling brain frame where students shared their previous knowledge about the trading route. After that students watched a short presentation about the Silk Road and completed a short reading followed by a discussion. Students had a chance to visit the UNESCO world heritage website and learn more about different cities along the Silk Road. On Wednesday  & Friday students were introduced to the Silk Road Assignment. This is our first performance task. Students will be working in groups on the assignment but will be assessed separately. Details can be found below.
