Teaching and Learning Strategies:
1. With a partner, answer the questions related to Chapters 4-6. Each team member is responsible for a post in Showbie (TKAM Notes).
2. Create a timeline in the Timeline App using Chapters 1-7. At least one event per chapter. You may have more than one event. When you complete your timeline, click on "finish". You will have two pages that you can screenshot - 1. the actual timeline. 2. the extended responses. (post in Showbie)
3. Individually, respond to the question about who is smarter.
