    step 1: Go to TOC and review the Table of Contents. 

    step 2: Go to Glossary and review the 20 terms that you will learn! Write them down so you recognize them during the Lesson.

    step 3: Go to the '?' and download the adobe flashplayer - you do not necessarily need this to do the lesson, but nice if you have it!

    step 4: Go to 'Home' Page and hit the START button .....continue moving through all the pages and take notes along with the definitions of the Vocab!

    Keep all your  work at home and I will collect when school resumes!

    ASSIGNMENT #1  ...................................................MR TATTERSALL/ECOLOGY 

     

     

    Hello Students……I hope that you are doing well and not too bored at home! I have some Great Lakes Resources already posted on my Teacher Webpage and I hope that you will take a look at them.

    I AM CALLING THIS ASSIGNMENT #1 AND PLEASE READ ‘THE GUIDELINES’ IN MY 1ST BLOG FOR STARTING AND COMPLETION OF ASSIGNMENTS! THERE IS NO PRESSURE & IF YOU WISH TO COMMUNICATE WITH ME – THEN PLEASE DO SO AT MY EMAIL ADDRESS: ctattersall@eriesd.org

    I Thought that for our first assignment I would include some Lessons that I have taught in the past using the resources from the brilliant Swedish Population and Health Physician Dr. Hans Rosling.  His ‘Lessons’ are very visual and informative and very appropriate right now in this moment of time. I hope that you will enjoy them too.

    • Follow the Steps below – and try to write down some of the information that I have ‘bulleted’ below:

     

    STEP 1……WATCH THIS TED TALK AT THE LINK BELOW: 

    (note: you can use the tools at bottom right corner of screen to get subtitles/slow speech etc)

    https://www.ted.com/talks/hans_rosling_the_best_stats_you_ve_ever_seen

    • What is the connection between Life Expectancy and Fertility rate?
    • What are RICH and POOR countries? How would you define them (hint: Western v 3rd World)
    • How has the World changed since the 1960’s
    • In your own words: What did you learn from this 2006 TED Talk that 14 million people have viewed?

     

    STEP 2………NOW THAT YOU HAVE A ‘GENERAL UNDERSTANDING’ FROM HANS ROSLING’S FIRST VIDEO IN 2006 – YOU WILL VISIT HIS WEBSITE AND THE LINK I HAVE DESIGNATED BELOW: 

    https://www.gapminder.org/ignorance/

    • Watch the 19 minute TED Talk at top of page ‘How not to be Ignorant about the World’ ALSO Read Background and What Gapminder does.
    • Take the Quiz with his audience and write down their answers and yours!
    • Do you believe that Chimps are smarter than Humans – Why or why not?
    • What are 4 Misconceptions; ‘Rules of Thumb” that his Son talks about?
    • Why does a ‘Fact based view of the World today’ help us?
    • What does the IMF GDP per capita data say about the future?

     

    STEP 3………GREAT!!... YOU ARE NEARLY A CERTIFIED GAPMINDER FELLOW! BUT BEFORE THIS YOU MUST VISIT THE HOME PAGE AT GAPMINDER.ORG AND COMPLETE THIS:

    • Welcome to the Gapminder Global Facts test!

      You will get 13 fact questions. There's a time limit of 45 seconds per question.
      If you pass the test, you are qualified to become a Gapminder and we'd like to honor you with the Gapminder Global Facts Certificate!
      If you don't pass the test, don't worry: we won't tell anyone and you can try again later.
      Thanks for spreading a fact-based worldview, starting with yourself.
      Good luck!
      The Gapminder Team

    TAKE THIS TEST WITH YOUR FAMILY – SINCE YOU SHOULD BE HOME – AND TELL ME HOW YOU DID!!

     

    • EXPLORE THE REST OF GAPMINDER.ORG WEBSITE AND HAVE SOME FUN LEARNING WITH THE GRAPHS/VIDEOS AND ANIMATION TOOLS!

     

    • WELL....'THAT'S ALL FOR NOW' FOLKS'....PLEASE STAY SAFE AND PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE AT HOME!
    • I WILL TALK TO YOU SOON...................MR.T
