This week we will be starting on an ADI assignment. The Esential Question that everyone will be looking at, regardless of subject area, is “How is/are fill in the blank affecting the future of agriculture?”
Tuesday: We’ll be starting off by looking at 3 different topics (you will choose the topic that captures your interest). You’ll read 2 articles about that topic and then tell me 5 things you learned about and 3 things you still wonder about. Once you complete this (about 50 minutes), you will either choose to work individually or work in groups of up to 4 people. You will research your topic with the intent of answering your “things you wonder about”. Remember to cite your sources. Taking notes will be very important!
Wednesday and Friday: Continue working on research, please see Mrs. Potter with questions.
Next week your options for completing this project will include a poster, PowerPoint or a research paper. Details will be explained explained on Tuesday of next week, however, your research/notes from this week are extremely important.
