↪ DBQ OUTLINE: Why Did Christianity Take Hold in the Ancient World?
↪ DBQ FINAL DRAFT
2. BIGGEST TAKEAWAY
↪ What is your BIGGEST TAKEAWAY (BIGGEST LEARNING) from our STUDY OF THE ORIGINS & SPREAD OF CHRISTIANITY?
My biggest learning takeaway related to how Christianity revolved around love and peace, and gave everybody who joined the religion the same amount of value. The religion also gave good medical care the people in need of it, and feed people if they were hungry.
3. VISUALIZING TEXT -sketchnoting
↪How did sketchnoting help you understand how Christianity originated and spread?
It was easier to convey my notes by drawing the words because shapes are more distinguishable than letters. It was also faster because with one glance at an image and I knew what it was about. Normal note-taking on the other hand, is not so fast or visual.
↪What did you learn about yourself as a visual notetaker?
I learned that you don’t need to be a good drawer. Just to draw your ideas so you can understand it.
4. EXPLAIN EVERYTHING & VLOGGING as a METACOGNITIVE STRATEGIES
↪What discoveries did you encounter as you were vlogging and exploring your thinking?
Vlogging was difficult because on one hand, I couldn’t pause because then it would look weird because of the mumbling and stumbling. On the other hand, I have a lot to say, but it’s hard because as you’re trying to explain it with your mouth, it means that your ideas won’t flow like you expected when you think in your head. When you’re thinking in your head, your thoughts change more frequently.
5. GOAL SETTING
↪ What is ONE of your GOALS for social studies?
My one and only goal in social studies is to be more fluent at vlogging so I won’t mix my words when I turn on the camera. Vlogging is like opening a hole in your brain, letting your ideas spill out onto the tape. I want to be able to fluently vlog because having more ways to express your thinking is better, so I won’t feel restricted when you vlog because it’ll be less difficult.
