Read how to support students to access prior knowledge about inspiring change and to engage in a first reading of a persuasive speech to get its gist. Lesson 1 includes the routines for writing to learn, talking in pairs or trios, note-taking and tracking learning. It also describes how to introduce the language of persuasion and the big picture of the unit via a graphic of a curricular architecture. Do not miss Lessons 2-4 in order to follow the progression from initial reading comprehension to critical thinking about one’s reading. Development supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

Access prior knowledge about inspiring change

Distribute the amplified (see Language Support below) or regular handout titled Inspiring Change, and display a copy of the quotation from Frederick Douglass on the overhead. Read or have at least two students read the quotation to the class.

English learners benefit from having a handout in addition to seeing the information on the overhead. It is helpful for students to hear the different voices of multiple readers and the repetition of the reading assists comprehension, especially English learners' oral comprehension. The Amplified Handouts provided in the unit were developed for English learners with an intermediate level of English proficiency; however, they can be amplified for all students along the continuum by extending language or content study as needed.
Explain to students that Frederick Douglass was a former slave who became one of the principal people speaking out about the abolition of slavery in the 19th century.

Additional information about Frederick Douglass is available on the PBS web site: (External Link)

"If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing. They want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its mighty waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
