Activity 3A: Change in Continuity Over Time
Where students have engaged deeply with a single narrative, they can consider what has changed for the person, and what has stayed the same for them over time.
STEP 1. T-CHART
Students are asked to consider “What has changed for [Name] and what has stayed the same?” for their focal person. Answers should be organized into a T-chart.
The teacher can provide a model using one of the narratives that everyone reads together. Here is an example for Mario.
STEP 2. BUMPER STICKER DESIGN
After the T-chart is complete, students design two bumper stickers for the person - one to represent continuity, and one to represent change. For example:
ACTIVITY 3B - Interview a Friend
ACTIVITY 3D - Historical Thinking Skills (HTS) Comparison
