CAR: Partial Project 1 (Due February 3)

Conflict and Reconstruction
Habilidades del Pensamiento
Proyecto interdisciplinario
First Partial Project: Rally around Centro Histórico and Santa María la Ribera
Students will do research on the characteristics of Mexico during Porfirio Diaz’s presidency and the Mexican Revolution by solving the riddle given to them by the professor.
Students will visit buildings or monuments from the late 19th century and early 20th century in downtown Mexico City in order to identify changes in Mexico’s reality since then.
Students will apply specific thinking processes in the analysis they will do of the architecture from the late 19th century and early 20th century.
Students will use Sway to make a presentation about the places they visited. They will include:
·         For Habilidades del pensamiento, an objective description of the places they visited
·         For Conflict and reconstruction, a map where they mark the places they visited, photographic evidence of their individual visit to each building or monument, and a video where they answer the question: What does the visited building or monument tell us about the time when it was built?
The Sway presentation will be turned in electronically via e-mail (a link will be sent) to both professors. 
1.     Form teams of 3-4 people. Each team will be assigned a different route.
2.     The professor will give each team a packet of clues about 5 buildings from the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, all located around Centro Histórico or Santa María la Ribera.
3.     Using the clues, figure out where you’re supposed to go.
4.     Plan your journey, and walk around the assigned places. Each person in the team should take a selfie in each place from their assigned rout.
5.     While visiting each place, ask yourselves as many questions about it as you can: Did something relevant happen there? Why was it built? How was it used when it was built? Who used to go there? What is it made of? What does it look like? What are its characteristics of the place?
6.    Record a video in each building or monument where you show what you found most relevant about it and its main characteristics in terms of architecture and culture. All members of the team should appear in the video.
7.     Back home, edit the video so it lasts a maximum of 1 minute where you answer the question: What does the visited building or monument tell us about the time when it was built?
8.     Upload the video to Youtube and embed it in your Sway presentation.
9. Include the rubric in your presentation.
