The Mayans: What Achievement Should we Remember Them By?
MAYAN ACHIEVEMENTS
Do Now - Thursday, April 7, 2016
Create a list of
VERY specific reasons
why these Mayan achievements were important to the Mayans
(not to us!)
.


3. Your STRONG VOICE!
A note before you get started...
These evidence texts
are more advanced than last time.

Like real historians, the answers might not be right in front of you.
You have to read between the lines to find what you are looking for
:)
Last time, you:
1) used evidence
2) offered counter-claims (bonus)

Remember this fact?
“ The ability to
verbally communicate
with persons inside and outside the organization' has consistently ranked in the top 4 skills employers most desire in job candidates" - Dave Stewart Jr.
Pretend you are in charge of writing a middle school history textbook.

determine
how people remember things
that no longer exist?

your
turn to determine how we should remember the Mayan Civilization...

Explain your choice using specific details from yesterday's text.
Pretend you are in charge of writing a middle school
history textbook (again!)

You will be scored on:

1. EVIDENCE
2. A counter claim/rebuttal (bonus points)
