Projects from World Cultures II – Mrs. Morgan Flagg-Detweiler

This post was contributed by Salisbury High School social studies teacher, Mrs. Morgan Flagg-Detweiler.

Video 1:  I’m a Slave by Danny Then (12th grade) and Joel Montanez (12th grade)

This video was completed as a creative project on the Atlantic slave trade.  Students were to choose one topic or person presented in the unit and creatively depict the topic or person.  In their rap, Danny and Joel describe the hardships of what slaves experienced during the harrowing trip.  This project was completed during the 1st semester.

Video 2: The Art of War by Peter Samy (11th grade) and Mason Kresley (11th grade)

Students were assigned topics pertaining to Imperialism in China. Peter and Mason chose the topic Sun Tzu and his famous book The Art of War.  For the assignment, students completed Keynote slides highlighting the big ideas of the topic and then created a depiction of their topic.  Peter and Mason completed a short movie describing the main points of their presentation.  

Video 3:  First and Second Opium Wars + 2 unequal Treaties by Charles Wagner (12th grade) and Chris Moyer (12th grade)

This was the same project  as listed above, however the topic was the Opium Wars and its effects.

This, too, is a project focused on Chinese imperialism. Jonathan and Tory highlighted all the details about the trade of opium by the British. The presentation demonstrates how the British felt superior to the Indian and Chinese people. There is some humor at the end of the presentation where there is a dance off between the queen of England and Gandhi.

Google Earth

This post contributed by Carly Brown, Kambria Carlson, Maegan Ochse   (Class of 2013).

Our World Cultures II class was assigned to complete an “Imperialism through GoogleEarth” project which consisted of research, design, and collaboration. Together, the three of us created a GoogleEarth tour that went from our own Salisbury High School to four different countries and four countries that were conquered by the European nations. Each member researched and contributed to the project. It was fun trying to find all the information Miss Brinson asked for, as well as images, videos and quotes to correspond with the information.  The project had its up side such as traveling to the country that was necessary and showing where it was located. Another positive outlook on the project was how everyone could collaborate equally with all the aspects of the project. For example, someone would get the picture and someone would finish the final product and so forth.  We did face some challenges from time to time, such as collating all of the information. This was a daunting task because of the shear volume of information. Some of the videos were from YouTube so embedding them in the placemarks was difficult at school because of the filter. However, we found we could do this task from home.  One of the other challenges we faced, was that GoogleEarth is not a truly collaborative tool and only one person can work on the tour at a time. While others could do the research or find resources, only one person could build the tour.

Overall, the project was a positive learning experience for all of us.  We enjoyed seeing our work come together so smoothly, and if we had to do another project dealing with traveling the earth, we would use GoogleEarth. (Now that we know how to use it!) This project has given us a new perspective on thinking and has been relatively beneficial for our learning.  As we find with many projects, the process was both aggravating and gratifying – learning to handle the application, and finally figuring out what we were doing – that is an awesome feeling, as was working with each other. We couldn’t have done all of this without each other.

TL2014 – Resources you may find useful… 03/04/2012

  • There appears to be two purposes for these videos. The first purpose is to provide short lessons to high school age students about topics in the subjects in which they have an interest. The second purpose is to provide students with information that will familiarize them with the expectations and realities of being a college student.
