Google Slides: Collaborative Meme Template - Teacher Tech | U.S HISTORY SHACK : MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
Who doesn’t love a meme? Memes can be creative critical thinking (of course, it depends on the effort the student puts into it); 2 of the 4 C’s. To write a really clever meme the student would have to understand the concept. Previously I blogged on how to create an educational meme in a Google Drawing.

The 4 C’s
When creating an assignment for students consider “Does this have at least one C?”
Collaborate
Critical Thinking (at least DOK 2)
Clearly Communicate Ideas
Creative Thinking

Executive Order 9066

Executive Order 9066 | U.S HISTORY SHACK : MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and the United States entered a war in Europe and the Pacific, the nation was overcome by shock, anger, and fear—a fear exaggerated by long-standing anti-Asian prejudice. Ten weeks later President Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, under which nearly 75,000 American citizens of Japanese ancestry were taken into custody.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 30, 9:23 AM

You can customize your own GeoGuessr quizzes now, as others pan and zoom in the StreetView to explore the landscape you selected and find more context clues as to where that location is.  Try my sample quiz that I made based on these 5 clues.   

  1. The best place to get clam cakes and doughboys in RI
  2. My hometown is home to this center of athletic excellence
  3. This monument was a part of my research in this Latin American city
  4. This is where I went to school to get my Ph.D.
  5. Home to the movie “Close Encounters,” this National Monument has always fascinated me.
