-I learned that we should look closer into the details. I want to be able to look at the details and find the important clues.
-I learned that everyone has a different perspective that alters their view of the world. This may have been the causes of many wars.
-Today and yesterday I learned that history is more than just studding the past, it is about everything in the world.
-I learned that we aren't just going to study words on a page, were going to understand and learn history.
-The more I look into the past the clearer the images, However, I don't have enough knowledge to piece the puzzle back together to make the image clear. I want this class to piece together this blurry puzzle one by one to make it clear enough for me to see. I want this class to teach me about what history means and how it affects us.
-I have learned that to understand history, I have to try and look at it from all different perspectives and no matter what, never give up.
-To be successful in this class I will have to be a problem solver.
-...If we try in different ways to look at history differently we can find new things we did not see before. What I want out of this class is to understand more and try to see the history and to understand things more clearly.
These are great answers. Believe me I could go on, but you get the point. Most students got the lesson. We will refer to this lesson the whole year long.
Today students worked on a coat of arms that represents them and did small interviews on goals they have this year.
Homework: Students need to finish Coat of Arms and bring in yellow parent sheet, if they have not.
