Whose History/Whose Science Class 8

 

Week 7 Assignment due Tuesday, March 29 by 4 p.m.

 

 

 

History, as nearly no one seems to know, is not merely something to be read.  And it does not refer merely, or even principally, to the past. On the contrary, the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all that we do.”

~ James Baldwin 20th century poet, writer, activist, thinker

 

 

 

 

 

 

Class Opener:  Who Does Science?

 

  

THE WORD "SCIENTIST' CREATES what image in your mind?

 

On a 3" X 3" POST IT NOTE or SMALL PAPER 

DRAW a scientist. Put a photo of your drawing into your learning log.

 

 

 

Workshop 1:  WHY Are Women Scientists and Inventors LOST to HISTORY? 

  

 

One scientist is changing Wikipedia's lack of information about women scientist, inventors, mathematicians, inventors and discoverers.

 

Read the article or view the TED talk.

Workshop 2: Investigating Paper Airplane Flights/ What Questions Are You Investigating?

 

 

 

Science is QUESTIONS--NOT ANSWERS. When we find answers, we have more questions.

 

You will compose questions in this workshop and record your findings after you fold, launch, fly, and relaunch your paper planes a few times.

 

 

View 3 videos by the world's expert on paper plan folding and flying.

Throwing Paper Airplanes With The World Record Holder 

 

3 designs-Choose ONE to FOLD & FLY! 

 

 

Choose a model paper plane from the video designs to FOLD, LAUNCH AND FLY!

 

3. Why did you choose the model of paper planes FROM THE VIDEO RESOURCE? What piqued your interest?

 

4. Write TWO  questions you will investigate or research with the plane's flights. (INVITE A FRIEND TO JOIN.)

Record details of the flight trials explaining what you learned trying to answer your questions.

 

BRING YOUR PLANE TO CLASS TUESDAY. We are flying those planes!

  • Science and history are not dates and terms to be learned, but ways of thinking and acting in the world.

 

  • Scientists and historians explore questions of importance and answer those questions through investigation and discovery, just as you did by building and flying paper airplanes.

 

  • As tutors and teachers, it is essential that students understand the importance of research and discovery and the central contributions made by women scientists.

 

9. What do you find interesting about the design of this Google Doodle as a way of teaching the hidden history of Hedy Lamarr whose invention SHOULD be known?

 

 

 

 

Place these paragraphs at the bottom of your weekly assignment.
