Oral Presentation assignment
Presentations: Oct 14, 21.
Remember to focus on one or two specific expectations rather than trying to do all of expectations associated to your overall. You are designing an activity to aid in “discovery” for your peers/’pretend grade level,” so get creative.
I look forward to my third opportunity to share best practices and historical thinking concepts with my students this year. I am especially excited to learn my teacher candidates – your new eyes and ears and creative strategies are a continued inspiration!

Tops and Tails
Other Ways to use this activity (as generated by my PED3183A Class):
Tops & tails:
- consider what part of the quote has “more weight” or significance
- connect significant event with a famous participant
- one event, two perspectives
- connect century to quote or event
- antagonist to his/her protagonist
- two quotes that lay in opposition to one another on a single issue
- a variety of matching pairs: two Prime Ministers, two famous Metis, two union leaders, two battles on Canadian soil etc
- place and rank on a timeline with both chronology and y-axis for ranking
- have students find the context in which the quote was said
- End of Unit – give examples of where the quote might have been right/wrong
- Start of Unit – students predict important issues in coming unit from the quotes
