CHW: The Olympiad

Our next evaluation is the Olympiad. Sometime next week, we will hold our Olympiad in the school gymnasium. Here are the basics:

    • You and 2-3 other students will be responsible for one event/section of the Olympics games
    • Your group will recreate the event for the rest of the class and explain its rules, purpose, and structure.
    • Each student will also create an annotated bibliography that outlines the research conducted. This step will be explained to you today.
    • Each student will be evaluated separately.
    • You can learn how to write a bibliography in the Chicago Style here

You will use the remaining time to work on the Annotated Bibliography component of your assignment. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Learn360 has a very useful video about the Ancient olympics, found here.
  • This article is here; it should be very useful for javelin and discus demos.
  • Use the databases, google scholar, or the trick to find useful sources. Do not rely on simple google searches.
  • Consult your olympics rubric III: the revenge for the details about your Annotated Bibliography
