              Hi Jackie,     I really like the essential questions you have here. Mostly because I think they really do set the stage for teaching global history. Since global is very immersed in many different cultures and places, your question...

                  Hey Jamie, I always ask myself that first essential question, what makes writing worth reading? Why should we do it? Before I have to write anything I always think first about what I would genuinely like to read and try to portray the same in my...

                    In your first essential question I'd like to throw a theory your way in saying that perhaps we repeat history because we are only looking for exact replicas of events instead of looking for identical or similar signs of events observed...

                      Based on my prior knowledge of both teaching and history as well as what I now know from the standards and assessment project I believe that the tree big ideas in history are as follows: 1. Being able to address, analyze, and discuss history is...

                        Big Ideas: 1. History is made up of multiple perspectives rather than just one side. 2. Places are effected by what happens all over the world. 3. History tends to repeat itself. Essential Question: 1. Why does history repeat...

                            In your first essential question I'd like to throw a theory your way in saying that perhaps we repeat history because we are only looking for exact replicas of events instead of looking for identical or similar signs of events observed throughout history. Because even when it repeats it's not always identical to an event that came before.

                              Hi Jackie, 

                                 I really like the essential questions you have here. Mostly because I think they really do set the stage for teaching global history. Since global is very immersed in many different cultures and places, your question #s 2 and 3 address it. Also, as cliche as it may sound sometimes, I think asking a class why history repeats itself is definitely worth it to an essential question. Thanks for sharing !

                                    Hey Jamie, I always ask myself that first essential question, what makes writing worth reading? Why should we do it? Before I have to write anything I always think first about what I would genuinely like to read and try to portray the same in my writing so someone else can enjoy reading. Some people are actually very talented writers and can make anything sound good or capturing. For me it's always worth reading when I know I put in my best work and someone else can read and say the same and there's something in it for everyone not just yourself.

                                      I have two comments:

                                      1. Writing responses to literature, while also connecting it to yourself

                                       

                                      Do you mean "responds" instead of "responses?"

                                      1. What makes a story effective for its purpose?

                                      What about: What makes a story effective for its purpose?
