Yes, I will not be in class Tuesday. But with the power of the internet I can still give you a quick intro to the lesson and you can see my smiling face.
You all have the iBook I created for the Domesday Book. It is also on the iTunes U course for you to download (this book contains several videos so is larger in size, please have it ready before class). You will need this for the lesson as it contains all the resources and videos you need. Please remember to bring your headphones to the class also.
As you go through the book there are several videos and Four Thinking Questions.
We will be using the blog in a big way again this time. Using the Book as reference please collate your responses into one document under the four question titles. (use Pages). Once you have completed your responses reply to this post with your work (maybe give it a proofread first this time?)
I only expect you to complete the first three thinking questions. If you can do the fourth, save this for our class discussion when I return.
The Thinking Questions in the Book are (they will make sense when you go through the book):
1. “Read through the questions asked in the Domesday book and try to answer these in relation to your lives and family.”
2. “Come up with a list of questions that the government (you) might come up with today. Relate these questions back to the first Domesday book (questions about land and possessions) and the Domesday project of 1986 (questions about what would be of interest in another 1000 years)”
3. “Use your list of questions to Survey some members of your class. Summarise your findings here.”
4. “The Domesday Project – 2013 Edition – Write a proposal on how you would complete a project such as this today.”
The video below explains what you need to do. Please ask your replacement teacher to display this video to the class first.
