Exercise 1: Hank's Domains of Authority

Exercise 1a: (10 min)


From what you know about Hank Green of CrashCourse (feel free to Google him and use his Wikipedia page), what kind of authority does he have to make each of the videos that corresponds to a different color sticky note?


1. Go to this google slide deck if you are in the 8:30 class. Go to this google slide deck if you are in the 10:20 class. You will be editing the slide for your group (Group 1, Group 2, etc).


2. Decide together what kind of authority (through Education, Life Experience, Work Experience, or No Evidence of Authority) Hank Green may have in the domains of photosynthesis/biology, pollution/ecology, and psychology.

3. Copy and paste the color boxes in the appropriate domain. Anyone who disagrees with the consensus at their group may copy and paste the color box and leave their initials. If you or your group thinks Hank Green has more than one kind of authority on a topic, come copy and paste the color box in those domains.
