After reviewing the Short Answer Question from yesterday, around ¼ of my students were mixing it up goods originated in the Americas and which goods originated in the Americas. For example, several students stated that the potato was introduced to the Americas by Europe. Simple mistake (I hope), but one that needs to be corrected before we move on. I was planning on going over the Pueblo Revolt today, but that will be moved to Monday when we review big ideas from the Chapter 1 Review Video.
The students quickly took the vocabulary quiz on period 1 which had 11 questions. Instead of having them watch Key Concept 1.2, I decided to do a traditional lecture today so I can spend more time going over some of the information that was missed in the Short Answer Question from yesterday. I normally save the Key Concept videos for review before a test, but wanted to make sure they had a better understanding of it today.
Once we were done discussing the PowerPoint, I had the students complete Key Concept 1.2 Quick Assessment WITHOUT them using their notes. I collected it and will review their responses this weekend as well as grade their vocab quizzes.
On Monday, I will review the Pueblo Revolt and other key ideas from Chapter 1. Period 1 will be done then and Period 2 will start next week.
Have a good weekend!
