Big 6 & WebQuest about Revolution
Task Definition: Define Problem & Information Needed
: Were the soldiers at the Boston Massacre guilty of murder?
Rubric for their persuasive writing as an individual/small group
including evidence from multiple sources
If we end up doing the actual trial and putting the redcoats on trial, planning the script can also be evaluated---did they make a script that was convincing and accounted for/ planned what the other side might say
This is going to have to include planning and recording BOTH sides of information's evidence first.
*What happened? Were they provoked? Who fired first? Was it an accident? Was it on purpose?
All Possible Sources, Select Best Sources
Newspaper Reports---Talk about Bias again, asking who made them
First Hand Accounts from: Thomas Preston, the villagers, People who threw sticks
Including the Boston Massacre Art that was made after the event- Emphasize with students who created thepainting might be important for them to navigate any biases
The dramatization video that's provided about the event- Understand this was made in present day. What did the creator want you to think about the Massacre? was there any evidence that could confirm it was a mistake OR that they did it on purpose?
Locate & Find information within sources
How will they keep track of things for and against their side?
Google Excel Sheet might be helpful- can organize evidence, lines of support, lines they want to make sure their "character" says during the mock trial, and can do "pro and against" their side's evidence
How will they keep track otherwise? They used to use the paper booklet but it took lots of time for them to write notes and half of them lost it. Could they create a shared document to connect ideas?
coggle? Padlet? They need to connect their research with peers' while also forming their OWN opinions
must make sure they keep track of where they found the evidence so they can call up into the trial
Use of Information
Watching the Videos- Hosted on the site. Include historical video & Dramatization
Extract Relevant Information
Organize from Multiple Sources
This is first going to have to look like what they Think makes them guilty or innocent. They need to show reasons for why the person is one or the other and write persuasively
They will be given a side, so they will need to organize and pick out the best evidence
Take words from ACTUAL first hand documents to put into their "trial" interviews.
PRESENT THE INFORMATION
First, I think groups should have options this year how they share their evidence to prove their side.
Newscasters interviewing people (Like a 2020?)
Evidence Based Magazine article?
Could they record it as a podcast with people acting as the characters? proving JUST their case?
Once they do this, should we expand the product into an ARGUMENT based assignment as a mock trial like usual or not?
