Morning Update-18 November

HL1 (there’s only a few of you today…): Again, have Roselle and Spray, pp. ix-xi (Preface); 1-11 (Chapter 1) read before you come to class this afternoon. Here’s the class activities, which were also posted (13 November @ 8.50am) in this week’s Gleek at a Glance:

Reading (done before class): Roselle and Spray, pp. ix-xi (Preface); 1-11 (Chapter 1)
Discussion Questions: What sort of questions do political scientists/historians ask? How should I choose a topic that reflects my intellectual interests? Why should I focus my topic so narrowly?
Exercises: 1. Using your Bickerton & Klausner text, identify a topic based on charts found on pp. 7-8 in the Roselle and Spray book. 2. Download either Xmind, Inspiration (or similar) and create a graphic organizer to replicate Table 1.2 in Roselle and Spray (pp. 9-10)

Finally, here’s some of the documents we’ll be working with during this unit: The IB Internal Assessment; Roselle and Spray Study Guide
