Monday's Instructions

Monday's Instructions | Australian History -The Great Depression | Scoop.it

Hello students!

I hope you are all well and working very hard! I look forward to checking your scoop.its when I arrive back in Adelaide tonight. So ... this lesson you need to make sure that you complete the following (and for homework) activities:

1. Complete your bibliography - use the generator I have provided. It can't get any easier :)

2. Make sure that you are using your own words.

3. Have you made links between at least two of your sources?

4. If you have an American (or other country) source in your scoop.it, have you made a clear link to the Australian experience? We are studying Australian History - but you need to place Australia in the global context! eg.What do sources from other countires tell us / or inform us about the Australian experience?

5. Don't forget to use capitals where appropriate.

 

I genuinely look forward to reading your scoop.its later tonight and tomorrow. I have been very impressed with the way you have all approached scoop.it.

By the way, a reminder! These scoop.its will be shared at the school's Open evening tomorrow night! V exciting!

:) Mrs Pill

Lesson 7 we had to evacuate to the oval for a bomb scare for the whole lesson so we missed out on working on it.

The Great Depression - An Introduction (to the task)

This should be the first scoop on your scoop.it. It needs to clearly introduce your topic as well as the key points that you are going to make.

You can write by hand a rough copy for each scoop, or you can edit it as you go.

Think about what image you will include in this introductory scoop. How will it add value to your introduction?

Make sure that you include information in your own words. Carefully read my scoop so that you understand what it is that you need to do for each section.

Your scoops will be shared at staff meetings as well as the upcoming Open Night.

Have fun! Don't forget to ask questions :)

Looking for Work

Looking for Work | Australian History -The Great Depression | Scoop.it

Work was difficult to find. It wasn't uncommon to see this sort of image.

Question: What else could be written here?

hint: You could do some of your own analysis or ... you might like to copy and paste a poem that was written at the time of, and about, the Great Depression. (Don't forget the referencing details!)

Sport and the Great Depression

Sport and the Great Depression | Australian History -The Great Depression | Scoop.it

Australia has always been sports mad. Phar Lap,  etc etc

In this post you would need to include why Phar Lap was important to people to the Great Depression.

Also, think about: Races he won, maybe include a quote from someone about the horse,

The Great Depression - interesting factors

The Great Depression - interesting factors | Australian History -The Great Depression | Scoop.it

There is a lot in this article. For something like this, you would need to think about, and identify, exactly why you have chosen it. How does it add to the overall message your scoop.it is communicating about your chosen topic. You will need to summarise one aspect of this article.

Hint:

Use a heading

Use dot points

Friday is Due Day!

Friday is Due Day! | Australian History -The Great Depression | Scoop.it

Hello students! Yes, today is the last day for submission. For a number of reasons, the due date was extended to today. No need to explain here :) Your scoop.it can be finalised at any time prior to midnight tonight (Friday). Make sure that you check your spelling. Also, have a look at the points I have made on this scoop.it to ensure that you are making appropriate links between sources as well as adequately analysing sources. Have a safe weekend, take care and I will see you all on  Wednesday (with your marks for this task). Of course with your Nazi Germany etc homework completed as well!

Mrs Pill

ps. I shared your scoop.its at theschool's Open Evening; some good reactions, so well done all :)

Statistics tell a powerful story

Statistics tell a powerful story | Australian History -The Great Depression | Scoop.it

With this scoop.it I would expect to see some analysis of the graph. Ask yourself the following questions:

1. What is this graph about? (obvious but very necessary!)

2. What do the figures over the period of The Great Depression tell us? (needs to be a couple of sentences)

3. How does this support one of the other sources I have chosen to place on my scoop.it?

The Great Depression Australia

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAu9U4ojO8Q

This is a simple youtube clip that uses a combination of music and images to communicate key ideas about the Great Depression. Using a clip like this is very effective, providing you provide some clear detail about what is being communicated and why it is useful. I would expect you to make clear and specific links to another of your sources on your scoop.it. Hint: If you have a clip like this, consider also using an article or interview in the scoop.it that you could link with this. (I need to figure out how to insert the youtube clip so that it can be seen!)
