Tonight for homework, you should craft your thesis and bring it to class tomorrow. You should be looking at the evidence you have collected to see where the gaps are. Do you have enough support to prove your thesis?

Documentary Movies – Then and Now

Today in class we finished our vignettes and started a new project.You are going to be creating a documentary movie connecting an issue from the industrial revolution to a current issue happening today in the world.
You were placed in a group and given a topic – you can find that here. There are also a few resources for each topic to help you get started.
Your group should have created a google doc as well for you all to begin researching and note-taking this weekend. The movies will be due on Wed. Oct. 12.
Finally, you need to make sure your vignette is ready to be assessed. I will be looking at those this weekend and providing feedback on your gdoc.
