Fusion: The Neolithic Revolution and Introduction to Annotation
To introduce this unit, we focused on how to properly annotate a text. This is a skill that students must use for the remainder of the year, so the texts that were chosen for this unit were specifically chosen with the objective for students to master that skill. During this unit, students are guided with the assistance of the teacher, paragraph by paragraph, in order to ensure mastery of the skill, as well as mastery of the content. Students are then gradually released from teacher assistance, eventually completing annotation on their own.
