Facts & Figures GRADE: 10TH grade World History

TIME SPAN: 2 weeks

DURATION: 5, 50 minutes classes

STANDARDS: History 4, English Language Arts 2, Geography 4, Economics 2

ASSESSMENT: Various quizzes, games, creative writing samples, and group activities. Objectives 1.) Evaluate the common modes of transport used in contemporary global commerce and comment on their effectiveness and veracity.

2.) Students will analyze the past and present role of transportation technology in enhancing economic growth around the world, in the United States, and in Nevada.

3.) Students will choose a current corporate business that they will globalize via various modes of transport that they will choose.

4.) The rapid growth of the global economy raises crucial questions: How does trade affect labor standards and the environment? What are the effects of global investment? What are the effects of the “clash of cultures” produced by new technology putting film, books, television and music on discs or on the Internet and new ways to send that “content” spinning around the world instantly? The five lessons of this unite are designed to examine these and other questions and to equip students to analyze the policy choices raised by globalization that loom increasingly large on the horizon.
Lesson 1 Introduction/Pre-Assessment/Theme: Ships and the history of their use in international trade.

Lesson Rationale:
The purpose of this first lesson is twofold. Firstly this lesson seeks to introduce a larger unit of study focusing on the recent (c. 1650-present day) history of international trade and commerce with a particular focus on the technological innovations involving ever more commodious methods of transportation that allowed international trade to flourish. Secondly this lesson will focus on the first mode of transport in our line of discussion, the days of sale in the wake of the Age of Discovery.

Lesson Objectives:
1. By the end of this lesson, the students will be able to identify five key provisions of globalization and how it occurs.
2. At lesson’s end, the students will be able to outline the history of European expansion into Asia and the Caribbean between 1600 and 1850.

Student assessment in this lesson will be a combination of participation points as well as the homework writing assignment. Points will be given for the homework based on content, thoughtfulness, signs of individual research, and composition.
Lesson 2 Theme: Trains and the history of their use in international trade.
Virtual museum involving locomotives.

Lesson Rationale:
This unit is on globalization with an emphasis on transportation.
This second lesson highlights railroads and their contribution to globalization.
It is always interesting how students, especially in high school, just think that certain things just come about or were invented a hundred years before their time. Students lose the concept of time.
Therefore, it is my job as a teacher to help them understand that in history there are many people, countries, technology, and techniques involved with inventions.
 
Lesson Objectives:
 
1. By the end of this lesson, the students will be capable of interpreting the effect that railroads had on overland and maritime transport.
 
2. After this lesson is complete, the students will be able to distinguish between various types of locomotives and where they were each developed.

The students will be assessed in this lesson in the following ways:
Teachers can assess the students’ individual work in their group.
Have the students take the role of someone important in the 1860’s like a banker, settler, a Chinese railroad worker, etc... and write a one page essay on the advantages and disadvantages of the transcontinental railroad.
Have a quiz on certain key terms. Some key terms can be as follows: Northwest Ordinance, Promontory Point, The Homestead Act, settler, The Pacific Railway Act, etc...
Students can have a class discussion, and the teacher can assess their participation and the validity of the information. Lesson 3 Theme: Automobiles and the history of their use in commerce and trade. Idea matrix timeline project.

Lesson Rationale:
The American love affair with the automobile is well known. The internal combustion engine changed the world and the way that goods are shipped. This third lesson has two main purposes. The first is to explore the history of the automobile, while the second is to understand how the automobile connected the U.S. and greatly increased its standing throughout the world. It is important that students understand the contributions that the automobile made to the shaping of our nation via the economic boom followed its creations, as well as the technological innovation that the assembly line brought, etc.

Lesson Objectives:
1. At lesson’s end, the students will be able to analyze the impact the automobile has had on the U.S. in terms of society and the culture.
2. As a result of having been taught this lesson the class will be able to determine the impact the automobile has had on the United States by increasing its global power.
3. At the close of the lesson, the students will be able to compare and contrast the United States dependence on the automobile to that of other countries.
4. At the completion of this lesson, the students will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the achievements and contributions of the automobiles that were significant in establishing the foundations of the United States major transportation systems.

The assessment for this lesson will be in the form of participation points as well as group points in the discussion lesson plan in lesson #3. This is a think-pair-share activity in which home groups will convene for a few minutes to discuss and evaluate what they have learned in the unit up to this point. All groups will be asked to draft a rough summary of information they have gotten from the first 3 lessons and points will be assigned based on content and accuracy.
Lesson 4 Theme: Planes and the history of their use in commerce and trade. Discussion lesson plan.

Lesson Rationale:
This lesson will mainly be used to introduce students to the history of aviation, as well as introduce them to using a computer as a tool for research. The history of aviation will provide students with a base of knowledge that can lead into the role aviation played in the past and to how it contributes to globalization today. The main activity will be a Primary Document scavenger hunt. The research component of the scavenger hunt will provide students with practice in how to research using a computer, which will help them with their group research projects at the end of the semester. This lesson will also have students looking at a primary source document to better understand the importance of these events that occurred in aviation.

Lesson Objectives:
1. At the close of this lesson, the students will be able to apply knowledge of aviation history to a greater understanding of world commerce.
2. At lesson’s end, the students will be able to evaluate the role that aviation played in ramping up global commercial expansion and globalization in general (eco-tourism, etc.).

The students will be assessed in this lesson via an internet and library scavenger hunt activity. Students will be evaluated on using proper sources to find the answers to the scavenger hunt worksheet, completion of the worksheet, and staying on task in the computer lab. All of these are summative forms of assessment that will contribute to the formative assessment at the end of the unit.
Lesson 5 Wrap up day/Summary of unit. Summative assignment: Primary document lesson plan outlined and assigned. Post-assessment.

Lesson Rationale:
Historical content in this lesson is a culmination of information that students have already been exposed to previously in the unit. It includes the various modes of transportation required to transport goods around the world, and the skills required to create a business plan. Also during this lesson students will participate in a group review quiz game (modeled after Jeopardy) that is designed to be fun and informative. For this review quiz game students will act individually when attempting to answer the questions. Correct answers will result in extra credit points.

Lesson Objectives:
At the end of this lesson, the students will be able to explain which economic and political factors contributed to globalization and the historic expansion of commerce between Europe and Asia.
Students will be able to create a basic small business model and logo in a small group and present their final product at the end of the class period.
 
The assessment tool in this lesson is the business plan, because this project assesses the students’ knowledge of business and transportation. Another assessment in this lesson is the Jeopardy game which will be used as a unit review and all students will be required to participate.
