Now, brainstorm a list of "successful" women in American history.
What are each considered "successful" for? Is there a difference in the quantity/quality of the ACTIONS represented by the lists?
For tomorrow, choose a woman from American history and research for an infographic. You will be using visual.ly to create an infographic about this person. Starting next week, you will be doing a short research paper on a woman in American history (she may not be contemporary or living) that you personally admire. She will not have to be famous, but she should be someone that has accomplished something that impacts a large group of people. You will not have to use your infographic person, but you may.
Also today we talked about note taking for reading. Here are some things to consider when you're taking notes:
Other—vocabulary, rhetorical devices/structure, paper topic, etc.
I suggest you use a 2-column system, but you may use whatever you'd like.
Don't forget the final draft of Melting Pot papers are due Friday. Please label the email/document you send MELTING POT. If you want a conference this week, sign up. Conference #4 is optional.
