What is Democracy? Lesson Plan

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Lindsay Silver (Teacher (K-12)), Feb 26, 2013

I really like the concepts of your lesson plan.  I like how the students have to take into consideration different readings and ideas to form their opinion.  Opinion/Argument writing is a huge part of the Common Core State Standards and I think this lesson does a great job supporting that.  

I think a way you could extend this lesson plan is to give them a scenario, maybe in groups, and have them decide what they should do to take action/form an opion about the scenario.

You might also want to insert a link to your Edmodo page so that it can be easily accessed and people can get an example of what you are using in your class.
