Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

A collaborative activity that uses primary source documents to help students identify the countries involved in the war and the attitudes of these countries towards the war.  Who blames who? And why?  This collaborative activity includes primary source packets for seven groups. Each packet represents a different country: France, England, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Serbia, or Austria-Hungary. Within the packet, students will find newspaper headlines, quotes, photos, political cartoons, or posters related to a particular “mystery” country. A blank map of Europe in 1914 is also included in the packet.Students should examine the sources within their packet to determine which country the sources represent. They should identify the location of that country on the blank map provided and then discuss the role of their country in the outbreak of the war, combining the primary sources, notes, textbook, and information discussed in class. At the end of the activity, students may shareinformation about their country and the role it played in the war with the class. This can be followed by a discussion of which country (or countries) contributed the most to the outbreak of WWI, allowing students to draw conclusions from multiple resources, as well as the information shared by their classmates.

It is the end and the beginning of an age. The year is 1914. Europe is the center of commerce, industrialization, science, art, and culture. It is home to great empires and glittering monarchies. It is a golden age of European power and civilization. Many in this era feel that they are living in the most civilized, technologically advanced time in history -- and they are proud of their achievements. So, how does this self-proclaimed, modern, civilized world crash into a war that engulfs the globe and consumes 10,000,000 lives? The Road to War will trace this descent into war. As they watch the video The Road to War, students will answer questions on the accompanying handout about the nations, major figures, and events that contributed to the outbreak of WWI.

4 Things You Don't Know About the Jigsaw Method

Rating
0.0 stars

Say “Jigsaw” in some teaching circles and no one will bat an eyelash. It’s one of those techniques that has been with us so long, it is no longer seen as new. When considering methods to share in my collection of instructional strategies, I ignored it for a long time because I assumed most people already knew how to use it. Still, I figured it was worth including at some point.

When I finally sat down to review the steps of Jigsaw, I came across a few surprises.

An AI Pattern Language
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

D&S researchers Madeleine Clare Elish and Tim Hwang discuss the social challenges of AI in their collection of essays, An AI Pattern Language.

From the authors:

How are practitioners grappling with the social impacts of AI systems?

In an AI Pattern Language, we present a taxonomy of social challenges that emerged from interviews with a range of practitioners working in the intelligent systems and AI industry. In the book, we describe these challenges and articulate an array of patterns that practitioners have developed in response. You can find a preview of the patterns on this page, and you’ll find more context, information, and analysis in the full text.

The inspirational frame (and title) for this project has been the unique collection of architectural theory by Christopher Alexander’s A Pattern Language (1977). For Alexander, the central problem is the built environment. While our goal here is not as grand as the city planner, we took inspiration from the values of equity and mutual responsibility, as well as the accessible form, found in A Pattern Language. Like Alexander’s patterns, our document attempts to develop a common language of problems and potential solutions that appear in different contexts and at different scales of intervention.

While we believe the views we present are significant and widely held, these patterns are neither comprehensive nor proscriptive. Rather, this document is an experiment in cataloguing and catalyzing. AI is not out of our control, and an AI Pattern Language calls attention to the ways in which humans make choices about the development and deployment of technology. This text was created in the spirit not of an answer, but of a question: how can we design the technological future in which we want to live?

Abraham Lincoln's 1855 Letter to Joshua Speed
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating
0.0 stars

Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed met in Springfield, Illinois, during the 1830s. Although Speed returned to his native Kentucky, they remained friends throughout life. In this letter, Lincoln expresses his thinking about slavery, which contrasted with Speed, who grew up on a plantation and owned slaves. The year before Lincoln wrote this letter, the Kansas-Nebraska Act passed Congress, repealing the Missouri Compromise of 1820, and opened the territories to slavery. The passage of this bill proved a turning point in Lincoln's career. As he observed, "I was losing interest in politics, when the repeal of the Missouri Compromise aroused me again."

Abraham Lincoln's Letter to George Robertson

Rating

"George Robertson was a Kentucky lawyer and professor who once served as legal counsel for Abraham Lincoln and other Illinois heirs of Robert Todd, Lincoln's father-in-law. During one of Lincoln's absences from Springfield, he dropped off a copy of his speeches and writings on slavery and other topics. In his response to this, Lincoln expresses his pessimism about the prospects of gradual emancipation and the way Americans now regarded liberty. The letter closes with the reference Lincoln would use three years later in his famous "House Divided" speech"
