“People’s ideas and actions can cause a shift in thinking and change the course of history”
Complete the reflection questions and rubrics below. When you have completed this, write what you think your biggest strength is and what you need to keep working on. My biggest strength was the fact that I can give very detailed explanation for changes and how they work. An area or skill I need to keep working on is to identify perspectives of people who changed the world, like Albert Einstein. My Understanding of the Central Idea:

Beginning  I am able to explain about one or two significant changes in history  I am beginning to have some ideas about how the world may change in the future.  I am beginning to be able to give very basic explanations for the causes of change.  I am beginning to be able to identify different perspectives about the reasons for, and effects of, change in one or two situations.

Emerging  I am able to explain about three or four significant changes in history  I have some basic ideas about how the world may change in the future.  I am able to give basic explanations for the causes of change. I am able to identify different basic perspectives about the reasons for, and effects of, change in one or two situations.

Developing  I am able to explain about more than four significant changes in history  I am developing some more complex ideas about how the world may change in the future.  I am able to give increasingly detailed explanations for the causes of change.  I am able to identify different increasingly complicated perspectives about the reasons for, and effects of, change in a variety of situations.  I am also starting to make inferences about different perspectives based on information that I have.

Proficient  I am able to explain about a variety of significant changes in history  I have some complex theories about how the world may change in the future that I can justify.  I am able to give very detailed explanations for the causes of change.  I am able to identify different perspectives about the reasons for, and effects of, change in a wide variety of situations. I am also able to make inferences about different perspectives based on information that I have.
