US HISTORY:

Read 8.7: (For journal notes. Not a hand-in assignment.)

• What percentage of U.S. slaves lived in the south?

Create a speech bubble for a southern delegate. “What would he say to explain why he wants slaves counted as people and not as slaves?”

Create a speech bubble for a northern delegate. “What would he say in reaction to the southern delegate’s thinking?”

• How did the northern states react to this new thinking on slavery?

 Assessment: If the learning target is to understand north and south attitudes towards slaves, how do my answers meet this target?

WORLD STUDIES:

(Each student will be assigned to a special interest group, as part of a urban development commission.)

Special Interest Group: Practice

• Gather in groups.

• Together, review your major concerns, ideas about development, the environment and planning for future growth. “What is our core philosophy?”

• Based on your philosophy, what changes would you make to Onalaska? “What are our concerns? Ideas for development? Ideas on the environment? Plans for future growth?”

• Write these down and present them to the class.

Assessment: If the learning target is to understand the core philosophy of my special interest group, how am I meeting this target?
