In this project, ESLOs is so essential because we will use almost every path in
ESLOs which are Strategic learners, Innovative thinkers, Articulate

First Mind Map:


World History II:
Unit 1 Project Guideline

(Here I would like you to brainstorm everything you know about your topic(s) before even
beginning to work on the project. It does not matter if you do not know much but try to add as
much information as possible.)

I will post on it due date

26/8/2017

Goal: Buy a scrap book

Note: I volunteered to buy a scrap book and I asked my


friends about what they wanted regarding size, color, and
design of the book that we will choose to make a scrap
World History II:
Unit 1 Project Guideline

book. I sent the picture of a book that I couldnt chose to


my group mates and, as a result, I got a hardcover book
with a hard paper inside, and light brown cover.

Reflection: I went to buy the product at the mall. There


were many options to choose from. First, I saw a
hardcover book that was perfect for our project, however
it was too expensive. In the end, I found another hardcover
book with an appropriate price that was useful for our
group. Therefore, we paid 24 baht per person.

28/8/2017

Goal: Design the product

Note: For first I designed the product to be like a pop-up


book, but when my group mates and I discussed about
how hard it is to make a pop-up book, we changed to a
scrap book because we thought it was not too hard, but
also not too easy do.

Reflection: Now I have finished designing the product, I


know what it will look like. I thought that I like this
product and me and my group mates agreed with this
style. So, we have decided to go ahead with it.

29/8/2017

Goal: Design the front cover

Note: I looked at other books covers and saw what was


good and bad about them. Some of them inspired me to
make my own cover and we designed it to be appropriate
for our book. We sketched the outline of the images, then I
took it home and I completed the final draft and decorated
it by dipping it in black coffee after coloring it.

Unit 1 Project Guideline

Reflection: I am satisfied with the final product. The cover


looks old and realistic like it is an original product. The
group are pleased with my work and tomorrow we will
start on the interior of the book.

30/8/2017

Goal: design the books interior

Note: We had to design the layout of the inside of the book.


We wanted to make it look very old, so we talked about
how to do it at the end of the class.

Reflection: I agreed with my friends idea that making it


look old will match with the books cover.

13/9/2017

Goal: The Victory of America

Question: Why did the United States win?

Note: There were many reason for the victory of American


against Britain who was one of the worlds super powers in
that period. The first reason was since the war took place
in the United States, this meant that the cost and
difficulty of supplying an army across the sea created
many problems for the British. On the other hand, the
British had used poor strategy against the American army
during the battles. Because of over confidence, British
army had lost many opportunities to crush the foes army.
Lastly, the British forces used conventional methods of
warfare by lining up in rows ready for the battlefield which
was easily taken down by guerilla tactics.
World History II:
Unit 1 Project Guideline

Reflection: I think that America could win the war because


they were fighting the battles in their home country, so
they were readier to fight the British. Also, the U.S. had
better strategies of warfare and they wanted to win
because they wanted to be free.

13/9/2017

Goal: Extra information about the victory of America

Question: Why did the American win this war?

The essential reason they won is that America fortunately


obtained financial and military assistance from the
French. The French government had seen a great
opportunity for revenge for the defeat of the Seven Years
War or French Indian War. The French and the British had
been fighting each other for hundreds of years. In 1781,
The Americans forced the British army to give a surrender
at Virginia. About hundred year after the war France gave
America the statue of liberty, to celebrate their close
relationship.

Reflection: Today I found the complete information about


why American won this war. I learned that France had an
important role in Americas victory. So, we can understand
that an enemy of your enemy is your friend.

16/9/2017

Goal: How King George iii related to American revolution?

Question: what did he do about the war?

Note: King George the third wanted to keep America as


part of Britain. Even though some ministers wanted to
negotiate with the rebels King George wanted to punish
the Americans by continuing the war. The King did not
want to surrender such a large territory, but in the end, he
had to surrender it because it was a very expensive war.

Reflection: I thought that at that time the British should


prepare more about warfare and supplier because America
is a powerful country, so it hard to beat them.
