Quaestio: Are the travel accounts of Ibn Battuta a valuable source of information for historians?

Classwork:
Ibn Battuta Longest Hajj Questions
Ibn Battuta Longest Hajj Readings

Homework:
Crash Course Mongols: Create Your Own Worksheet!
Instead of me creating a worksheet of questions for you, you guys will get to create your own for yourselves! The basis for the worksheet will be the Crash Course video on the Mongols. As you watch the video, plan out questions for your worksheet.
On a piece of copy paper (you can print it or draw it by hand), create a worksheet with a title (cool fonts encouraged), clear directions, and a set of 6-8 questions. The questions must be mixed in terms of difficulty level. You must use the DOK Chart to help you vary the difficulty of the questions. The amount of recall questions (level 1) must be less than half of the questions. Label each question with its level (DOK 1/2/3/4) and then write your own answer underneath!

Classic sketch. I tried to post the video earlier but it got blocked for copyright, so you’ll have to watch it on YouTube. Just search “Executive Order SNL”. Which of the traits we discussed in class might apply? #MakesOrBreaksLaws #CircumventsAssemblies 🏛 #AppliedHistory #EqualTime #HistoricalConnections #Augustus #JamesIofEngland
What do you think? 🤔 Does that sound like one of the traits from our lesson? Perhaps an appeal to #CulturalUniformity? If you don’t align to to a certain standard, “maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.” 🇺🇸 #AppliedHistory #HistoryConnections #ShiHuangdi #LouisXIV #PeterTheGreat
The Trump administration recently announced a new, get-tough policy that will separate parents from their children if the family is caught crossing the border illegally. It was a big news story. So big it overshadowed the fact that the federal government has lost — yes, lost — 1,475 migrant children in its custody. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told Congress that within 48 hours of being taken into custody the children are transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services, which finds places for them to stay. “They will be separated from their parent,” said Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif. “Just like we do in the United States every day,” Nielsen replied. Just like in the states, only ... not. Except that the states, unlike the federal government, have systems in place to better screen the people who become guardians of the children and much better ways to keep track of those children. And not lose them. That is what happened to 1,475 minors swept up at the border and taken into custody by the federal government. Gone.

Bryan Stevenson on #WhiteSupremacy as the true evil of American #slavery. This should sound very familiar to all of my students, as we have been hitting this point repeatedly.
