I enjoyed looking at this lesson plan. It was interesting for me to see how a Social Studies and English curriculum worked together. In English, it's so important to give a context for the novel we are starting and I like the idea of having a Humanities class where the ideas sync together. I really liked this lesson plan, especially because it's right around the election. Students at my school would definitely have benefited from learning about the different political parties and how they work. I felt it was a great idea to have students collaborate on Google Docs, so they are able to access their work from anywhere. I also enjoyed the timeline idea because it allows kids to see the information in print form and also visually. I think it was a great addition to have them present. It made them accountable for their research and presentation. It also allowed other groups to learn about each party. The lesson plan seems like a very relevant, content-specific, accessible lesson for students to embrace.

Technical Remarks:

I did not find any technical issues with the lesson plan. The link to the material worked correctly. The lesson plan was easily accessible and well-formated.
