Read and complete a Dialectical Journal on an assigned book. First day of class hours (depending on reading speed) Resources needed to complete assignment How the assignment will be assessed School assigned textbook Student purchased book(s) Bruton High School: Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong by James W. Loewen Grafton High School: Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation by Joseph J. Ellis Tabb High School: Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong by James W. Loewen York High School: Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation by Joseph J.

Introduce new material/concepts/skills. Purpose of assignment Expose students to required material/concepts/skills/texts that cannot be covered during the academic year. Have students read material that will be discussed or used in class at the beginning of the year.

2 American Pageant Directions Read chapters 1-3 in the course textbook, The American Pageant. For each chapter that you read, you are to define the given terms in the provided format (see below). Then you are to respond to the provided questions in paragraph form (also see below). ID Format: Be sure you complete each component for every term. View the terms in light of the context in which you are reading. Thus, in chapter 1 you may be able to define capitalism based on your modern understandings, however, you need to define and explain the significance of capitalism based on the time period being discussed in the chapter. This may be done in a chart or another organizational method so long as each component is clear. All term IDs should be in complete sentences. Be concise while providing pertinent information (these are not paragraphs but may require 2-3 sentences). If you use a source beyond the American Pageant, you must include that source below your identification (url link is fine). The term components are: Identification Who/What/When/Where is this? When writing the ID portion of the task you are looking for cold hard facts. This tends to be straight answers from your reading. However, be sure you are not copying your textbook word for word. Read and then write your own sentences. Significance Why is this important in history? What impact did it have? Why do we care? When responding to the significance portion of the task you are concerned with historical interpretation. This is critical thinking; it will not (and should not) come directly from the book. Paragraph Expectations: Paragraphs should be in complete sentences and should fully and thoughtfully answer the question. Your responses should draw on your reading of the American Pageant but should not copy its words directly. If you choose to use an outside source, you must provide the links to your sources. Chapter 1: Terms: 1. Columbian Exchange 2. Iroquois Confederacy 3. Atlantic Seaboard 4. New World 5. Capitalism 6. Joint-stock companies 7. Encomienda System 8. West African Slave Trade 9.

5 Dialectical Journal Directions: Dialectical Journals are a note-taking method that forces you as a reader to engage in an ongoing conversation with the text. Dialectical Journals are in a two column format where each side contains a specific function. Using the dialectical journal format as your note-taking method for the book assigned by your school. Left Side Think of this side as though the author is speaking/writing to you. What key ideas would he/she say to you? Record the most important ideas or striking information. This information needs to reflect the breadth of the book assigned. Give a direct quote that is particularly salient or significant Summarize or paraphrase a passage (be sure you reflect the main idea of the passage) Give relevant data and its impact For each entry provide page numbers Right Side Think of this side as your turn to speak/write to the author. For each left side entry you must give one of the responses listed below. Be sure you label your responses and use a variety of response options (each response should appear relatively equally). Each response should be thoughtful and written in complete sentences (R) Reactions: Do you agree/disagree with the author s argument? Has something in the text surprised you? Added to your understanding? Contradicted a previous belief? Be sure to include statements of WHY you think or reacted in the manner you did to the text. Consider what experiences or background information influenced you. (C)Compare/contrast: HOW do this author s ideas compare or contrast to what you ve read, have learned in history class, or experienced? How did the passage add to your understanding? (S) Significance: Does an event, person, idea discussed have a larger impact beyond the time period discussed? Explain its significance to another time period, person, event, or similar situation to another country. (Q) Questions: These should be higher order questions that would prompt discussion and cannot be answered by a simple yes or no. Offer a potential, reasonable answer for the question that you pose. Dialectical Journal Considerations: All work should be in complete sentences Each left side entry should have a response. One of the given responses must be used. Entries should cover the entire book A minimum of 30 entries are required APUSH Summer Assignment Considerations 1. All work should be typed, printed, stapled, labeled with your name, and ready to be turned in on the first day of class at the beginning of the class period. 2. Work should be done in 12 point, Times New Roman font with standard margins. 3. Terms and paragraphs from part I should be labeled with the appropriate chapter and numbered. 4. Wikipedia and quizlet are not considered to be an effective source for academic research. Any information you seek beyond your textbook must be a.org/.edu/.gov source. 5. Late work will not be accepted unless an arrangement was previously made with the teacher. 6. Any work that is not your own (this includes copying from the book, your peers, or the internet) will result in a zero and infraction.
