This week we will be focusing on analyzing evidence surrounding Otzi in order to get a deeper look into this time period of around 3,300 BCE. Students spent the day becoming introduced to their week-long analysis task and began looking at one source of evidence: the textbook.
Throughout the week, students will compare this evidence with evidence from other sources such as a documentary and an article about this famous iceman.
On Friday, students will demonstrate what they have learned by completing an open-note assessment requiring them to compare all of the evidence they have analyzed throughout the week.
American Teacher, narrated by Matt Damon, is now available on Hulu!
I encourage anyone interested in the American education system to watch this award-winning documentary for free!
