Intended Learning Outcomes:
Students who finish early can use a computer to look up more news sites so they can develop more of an awareness of current events.
I will know my students have learned the concepts I am teaching because they will be able to get 9/10 questions on a quiz about the news events we talked about in class. Also, they will get a check plus on the paragraph they write about connections with history which they will have turned in to me.
