Students have already begun data gathering for their upcoming final. The gist of this final is data collection from multiple sources to allow for an informed discussion. Each student is responsible for their own model of a chosen cultural innovation and for a deep understanding of that particular culture. Students will be expected to be fully aware of each culture studied in class and be responsible for counterarguments concerning other innovations and other cultures.
In short, students need to collect mounds of data, highlight what's important, analyze that data and then construct a 3d model of the innovation they determine to be the most influential from the cultures studied in class. Our deadline is the second week of June.
Presentations will occur during the second week of June. Each set of speakers will have thirty minutes to parse out each other's ideas and to form counters. The best argument from each set of speakers will earn a seat in the finals. The finals will be held near the last day of school.
Attachments detailing the project further will arrive soon.
