You need to use the Truman Trial eResources sheet to do your research, at least initially.  TODAY IN LIBRARY- find and read 2 sources on Truman Trial and prepare notes- complete the task from your colored role sheet for the first day- see directly below:

Basically:
Jurors- create personal background sheet- personal bio (which is due Thursday)- see back of your role sheet- and complete timeline from purple sheet (sub will give to you today).
Attorneys: Read background material, talk together and come up with main thesis/argument for your side- divide up witnesses, collect contact information from each witness and each other, get organized!
Witnesses- do a lot of research on your character and start MLA document, along with good notes to write your bio- see back of your witness sheet (which is due Thursday).

Homework:
1. Complete the following by Thursday:
-- Witnesses write bio for role- have solid draft ready at start of class on Thursday- YOU MUST BRING 2 COPIES OF YOUR BIO TO CLASS ON THURSDAY FOR BOTH ATTORNEY TEAMS.

--Jurors complete personal bio- BRING TWO COPIES ON THURSDAY, start timeline of atomic bomb. Also, FYI, you will also need to find, read and take notes on 2 articles about current nuclear proliferation by the day of the trial- to teach class after trial.

--Attorneys, refine your main thesis for the trial and look for evidence to prove your thesis. Your thesis is something like "Harry Truman is guilty/not guilty of War Crimes against Humanity because…"  Divide up roles- get phone numbers/emails for each other and your witnesses- you are interviewing and questioning and dividing up witnesses from BOTH sides. Your own side= direct questioning, witnesses on other side= indirect questioning. Attorneys are looking up LOTS of evidence about the case. Primary sources are best!

Final Product due date: ALL FINAL PRODUCTS AND REVISED ANNOTATED BIBS DUE ON TUESDAY 4/8!!!!!


History Day Draft Plan HW:  One Plan Per Product/Group
Underlined text is what you have to turn in for your draft.

Step 1. EVERYONE DO THIS:
Start your HD Product Draft- the draft is worth big points- Product Draft Due Thursday March 20th.  Follow the directions below for your product choice- step 1 is to visit the NHD website for entries- http://www.nhd.org/CreatingEntry.htm.  You should also look over the HD Final Product Rubric, which is pp. 107-112- front page is the same for all and back page varies by category. Final product in my class is worth 90 points. Then:

Step 2. TASK BY PRODUCT CHOICE:
Exhibit:  Read page 80, 94-100 in your History Day Handbook.  Also, read the rules for exhibits on the NHD website. You also need to read the overview of this category and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website.  Decide the shape and materials for your exhibit- should be lightweight (you need to move it around) and cheap!  Be creative, but fit the rules.  Complete the exercise on pp. 97-98 of the Handbook!!!!! This is your main prep work. Create a DETAILED mock-up of your exhibit, based on the instructions on pp. 97-98, with each panel of your exhibit as a separate piece of paper.  Type it or hand draw it carefully, and construct the called for drawing.  Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Documentary: Read page 104-105 in your History Day Handbook. Read the rules category on the National History Day website. You also need to read the overview of this category and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website.  Write your script and turn this in. Also, create a storyboard notebook following the directions (handouts) Ms. McFarlane has put onto the documents section of her website- 2 documents- storyboard and color code key).  Use the color-coding that the handout* asks you to do. Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Performance: Read Page 101-103 in your History Day Handbook. Read the rules category on the National History Day website.  You also need to read the overview of this category and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website.   Write your script. Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Paper: Individuals only:  Read Page 80-93 in your History Day Handbook.   This includes a sample paper in full. I also recommend spending some time in my classroom and reading more sample papers from my file. Also, read the rules for papers on the NHD website, read the overview of this category on the NHD website and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website. Write a draft of your paper. Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Website: FYI- If you want to do a website, you either need to use Weebly (go to NHD to register so it is free)- see the NHD.org website on your own computer (Weebly does not work on ipads and is not flash supported), or you must figure out how to publish it somewhere so that I can read it and it is linked to the Shoreline School District website for History Fair. You need to figure this part out on your own.
You need to first read p.106 in the HDH, then read through the ENTIRE National History Day Website section (including related pages)- http://www.nhd.org/WebSite.htm. Look at the example websites again. After doing so, decide on your website organization, and map out your content from your sentence outline onto a schematic drawing (like an essay organizer), which shows your website organization, then start your website. Your product draft is BOTH
your draft website and the schematic organizer (indicate Roman Numerals and parts of outline on this)- you will need to send me an active link- show me both your drawings and your website draft. Use the following information to help you:

   1. Site Design: What is the template for the web site? Are you going to create one or use a template from a prebuilt program? What colors, fonts, and general style will you use on the site? How will all the pages link together to create the entire site?
          * Page template
          * Diagram of the organization web pages created
   2. Page Content: What are the headings for each of the pages? What information should go on each page? Remember, drafting your text during this step in a word processing program will be much easier than writing it in the web design program.
          * First draft of text for pages
   3. Non-Textual Content and Interactive Elements: As you draft your site on paper, you will also have to decide what non-textual content (illustrations, media, etc.) and interactive elements you will include. What photos or multimedia are available? How will each piece help the viewer understand your argument and topic? How can you engage the viewer through interactive elements?
          * Non-textual content selected
          * Captions written
          * Interactive elements identified and planned

Look at examples on the NHD website, and in the History Day Handbook, if applicable. Due Monday.

History Day Draft Plan HW:  One Plan Per Product/Group
Underlined text is what you have to turn in for your draft.

Step 1. EVERYONE DO THIS:
Start your HD Product Draft- the draft is worth big points- Product Draft Due Thursday March 20th.  Follow the directions below for your product choice- step 1 is to visit the NHD website for entries- http://www.nhd.org/CreatingEntry.htm.  You should also look over the HD Final Product Rubric, which is pp. 107-112- front page is the same for all and back page varies by category. Final product in my class is worth 90 points. Then:

Step 2. TASK BY PRODUCT CHOICE:
Exhibit:  Read page 80, 94-100 in your History Day Handbook.  Also, read the rules for exhibits on the NHD website. You also need to read the overview of this category and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website.  Decide the shape and materials for your exhibit- should be lightweight (you need to move it around) and cheap!  Be creative, but fit the rules.  Complete the exercise on pp. 97-98 of the Handbook!!!!! This is your main prep work. Create a DETAILED mock-up of your exhibit, based on the instructions on pp. 97-98, with each panel of your exhibit as a separate piece of paper.  Type it or hand draw it carefully, and construct the called for drawing.  Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Documentary: Read page 104-105 in your History Day Handbook. Read the rules category on the National History Day website. You also need to read the overview of this category and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website.  Write your script and turn this in. Also, create a storyboard notebook following the directions (handouts) Ms. McFarlane has put onto the documents section of her website- 2 documents- storyboard and color code key).  Use the color-coding that the handout* asks you to do. Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Performance: Read Page 101-103 in your History Day Handbook. Read the rules category on the National History Day website.  You also need to read the overview of this category and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website.   Write your script. Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Paper: Individuals only:  Read Page 80-93 in your History Day Handbook.   This includes a sample paper in full. I also recommend spending some time in my classroom and reading more sample papers from my file. Also, read the rules for papers on the NHD website, read the overview of this category on the NHD website and examine the NHD example(s) on the NHD website. Write a draft of your paper. Indicate the section of your outline you are writing about by placing correct Roman Numeral and upper case letter there.

Website: FYI- If you want to do a website, you either need to use Weebly (go to NHD to register so it is free)- see the NHD.org website on your own computer (Weebly does not work on ipads and is not flash supported), or you must figure out how to publish it somewhere so that I can read it and it is linked to the Shoreline School District website for History Fair. You need to figure this part out on your own.
You need to first read p.106 in the HDH, then read through the ENTIRE National History Day Website section (including related pages)- http://www.nhd.org/WebSite.htm. Look at the example websites again. After doing so, decide on your website organization, and map out your content from your sentence outline onto a schematic drawing (like an essay organizer), which shows your website organization, then start your website. Your product draft is BOTH
your draft website and the schematic organizer (indicate Roman Numerals and parts of outline on this)- you will need to send me an active link- show me both your drawings and your website draft. Use the following information to help you:

   1. Site Design: What is the template for the web site? Are you going to create one or use a template from a prebuilt program? What colors, fonts, and general style will you use on the site? How will all the pages link together to create the entire site?
          * Page template
          * Diagram of the organization web pages created
   2. Page Content: What are the headings for each of the pages? What information should go on each page? Remember, drafting your text during this step in a word processing program will be much easier than writing it in the web design program.
          * First draft of text for pages
   3. Non-Textual Content and Interactive Elements: As you draft your site on paper, you will also have to decide what non-textual content (illustrations, media, etc.) and interactive elements you will include. What photos or multimedia are available? How will each piece help the viewer understand your argument and topic? How can you engage the viewer through interactive elements?
          * Non-textual content selected
          * Captions written
          * Interactive elements identified and planned

FINAL HISTORY DAY PRODUCT DUE DATES:
MONDAY April 7, 2014
All Papers Due
5 Points extra credit for any completed Websites, Exhibits, Performances and Documentaries turned in this day.

TUESDAY April 8, 2014 All Websites, Exhibits, Performances and Documentaries due

USE LOTS OF PRIMARY SOURCES- THE WORDING OF A JIM CROW LAW, A QUOTE FROM A PERSON FROM THE TIME, A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE QUOTE FROM THE TIME, THE TEXT OF A BROCHURE, ETC!

A QUALITY DRAFT OF ENTIRE SENTENCE OUTLINE due Thursday 2/27, 2014. BRING 2 COPIES OF YOUR DRAFT OF YOUR SENTENCE OUTLINE ON THURSDAY!



Idea for developing your sentence outline- One way to think about it:
Thesis at top- includes Rights and Responsibilities
I. Introduction, following p.47 letter C- give lots of historical context
II. Basic background on your topic (some early historical perspective)
III. analyze your topic regarding Rights or Responsibilities- key people, events and ideas and add more historical context, if needed
IV. analyze impact and significance at that point in time- in terms of Rights and/or Responsibilities.
V. Conclusion- wider significance and overview

Each roman numeral above should be a gorgeous topic sentence and relate to the thesis and the theme!!!!!!
A, B, C should be a topic sentence that has qualitative terms and is a sub-topic to prove under II, Details, quotes and evidence come under 1, 2, a, b, i, ii, etc.

II. Topic Sentence (which ties in to thesis and has at least one word from theme in it)
    A. Main Argument for III- complete sentence!
    1. detail that supports A
    2. another detail that supports A
        a) a quote or super-specific fact that supports 2
        b) analysis of a) or another super specific fact that supports 2
            i) even more detail- supports b
            ii) another detail that supports b
    B. Another main Argument for III- complete sentence!
    C. Another main Argument for III- complete sentence!
    D. Another main Argument for III- complete sentence!

2.) Clearly state something about rights and/or responsibilities in the thesis.

Tips on Annotations: It might help you to refer to a completed Annotated Bibliography and sample rubric in your HDH  pp.29-36.  Refer to the rubric on p. 36 and MLA handbook info on pp.39-40 of HDH to help with MLA and what to do for Annotation.  
This is basically what you need to write for your Annotated Bib- for EACH MLA source- 3-6 sentences per annotation.  Content is:
a) what you learned from the source- be as specific as you can
b) why and how this is a reliable/credible (believable) source
c) how you think you will use it in your HD project (this last sentence will change as you go through the HD process).
Example: (Note- if MLA is more than one line, indent 2nd, 3rd lines of MLA. Indent Annotation, too).

Though this book is aimed toward younger readers, it does provide a good overall picture of the code talkers. It contains a valuable anecdote about the code talkers’ services on Saipan that provided a good example for my final project. Other helpful sections were those explaining the battles that the code talkers were part of and the Comanche code talkers, who provided a comparison point for the Navajos. I found this book in the bibliography of another, which supports Daily’s credibility.
