    Quote: “Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Agenda:
    1. DO NOW: Which 2 six glasses that Standage refers to are the most similar? 
    Explain How & Why? (Think in terms of WHAP Themes: S.P.I.C.E.)

    3. Periodization through Six Glasses:
    I. Individual students will copy down the periods of world history written on the board. 

    Using their notes from the summer reading, they will pencil in each of the six glasses to where they correspond.

    II. Individual students will write the important historical events that occur during those time periods.

    III. Working in pairs, students will put their heads together to fill in anything they may be missing. We will also write each drink next to each period on the board. Then write the corresponding important events that may have occurred in those time periods. Students have a better understanding of how Standage's Six Glasses connect with world history.

    Discuss these questions in pairs and then as a full class:
    A. What was the impact of beer and wine on world history? 
    B. Explain what a spirit drink is and what is the significance of this drink on world history?
