Even though I will not be able to use this lesson in my classroom due to my subject area, I found this lesson very intriguing. I like how students are able to pick and choose a topic and a way to express their learning (UDL). I also liked how the topics would appeal to most students – there are topics more for females (females in history) and typical males of that age (weapons). Not being a history person, even I wanted to read all of the text that was available!

Technical Remarks:

All links seemed to work at the time I checked this resource. My only concern with this lesson is the fact that many districts may not allow Google accounts for their students. This may make the collaboration part a little more difficult to do – but not impossible.

Engaging lesson plan!  The supporting Wiki and links provides a collaborative forum for students to select a subtopic of interest and review a wealth of information.

Student's shared document(s) provides review by both peers and instructor feedback.  Well designed and I enjoyed the content and delivery method(s).

Technical Remarks:

Excellent links; no navigational issues.

I really enjoyed this lesson. I am not a teacher of Social Studies, so I will not be able to use this lesson in my classroom, but I think it is a great lesson which utilizes UDL principles. Because students get to choose how they want to show knowledge (writing, drawing, poetry) it draws upon many learning styles. I also think it is a great use of the Wiki Technology. Students will be more engaged because if the interactive qualities of the Wiki. While I personally cannot use the lesson as is because of the content that I teach, I plan to use it as a guide to format other lessons I can teach.

Technical Remarks:

Links work well and the Wiki link is a great resource.
