I Am Blessed

 

Today upon a bus,

I saw a lovely girl, so very sweet.

To me, she seemed so nice,

And I wished we were to meet.

When suddenly she rose to leave,

I saw her hobble down the aisle.

She had no legs, she bore a crutch,

And as she passed she wore a smile.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine;

I have two legs and the world is mine.

 

And when I stopped to buy some sweets,

The lad who sold them had such charm,

I talked to him, he seemed so glad,

If I were late it would do no harm,

And as I left, he said to me,

‘ I thank you, you have been so kind.

It is nice to talk to folks like you.

You see, I am blind.”

Oh God, forgive me when I whine;
For I have two eyes, the world is mine.

 

Later, while walking down the street,

I saw a child with eyes so blue;

He stood and watched the others play,

It seemed he knew not what to do,

I stopped a moment and then I said,

“ Why don’t you join the others, dear?”

He looked ahead without a word;

And then I knew he could not hear:

Oh God, forgive me when I whine;

I have two ears and the world is mine.

 

With legs to take me where I will,

With eyes to see the sunset glow,

With ears to hear what I would know;

Oh God, forgive me when I whine;

I am blessed indeed, the world is mine.           -Anonymous.

Homework

Homework

Dear parents and little explorers,

Get geared up for your upcoming Summative Assessment of the Exploration unit.

Homework

Create a timeline after referring to the information given below.

UOI:  http://users.humboldt.edu/ogayle/hist420/Chronology.html

Good history teachers use chronological storytelling

Image of a chronology

What is a historical chronology? This is a written or visual timeline of a particular historical event. While a chronology can consist of many different formats (as explained below), a really good historical chronology always includes two things: the date– or approximate dates – of an event, and an annotation – a brief 1-3 sentence description of the event. So, in the example above – which is a visual annotated chronology – you can see examples of both. In a written format, the first entry would look like this:

July 1497:-  Vasco Da Gama’s First voyage. The expedition set sail from Lisbon to reach India. It followed the route pioneered by earlier explorers.

When an annotated historical chronology is done well, it will tell a story. And just what is the importance of a good historical chronology that tells a story? When we make a chronology of historical events, we create a graphic representation of how we think about time.

  • We link time with events.
  • We make a sequence that suggests a past, present, and future.
  • We provide a direction that says time and history proceed in a line, not a circle.
  • We demonstrate that some events happen before others, which in turn, suggest the possibility of cause and effect.
  • We show how events exist in relationship to one another.

Thus, making a chronology allows us to graphically plot the sequence of events, to see possible relationships between those events, and to tell a compelling story.

To refer to a few examples explore the link: http://users.humboldt.edu/ogayle/hist420/Chronology.html

TASK: (How to Create an Annotated Chronology)

  1. Select a topic that interests you (Create a chronology/timeline for any famous person).
  2. Review and select a variety of research resources – both secondary and primary documents.
  3. Begin reading whatever book or article that most interests you about the topic.
  4. As you read this first source, write down dates and brief descriptions for the most important historical events. In other words, annotate your chronology.
  5. When you are finished with your sources – you will have a long chronology of events – edit your chronology by deleting those you no longer think are important and marking places where you still do not have enough information to tell the story.

You may use any medium to express your timeline. ( Online apps, Chart paper, PPT) Ensure you take a printout and submit the physical copy in class tomorrow.
