I had to create a lesson plan for U.S. History. I focused on the causes and the people of the Civil War. For the causes of the war, I decided to let the students do a project. Basically, I would assign the students to either the North or South and they would have to write a newspaper article in the point of view of a journalist from that time. For the people, I decided to do a game show, asking questions about certain figures that I covered.
I was just wondering what you guys thought about my methods of testing the students about the material and if you have any suggestions for me. It would be AWESOME if you guys responded, because I have to include yall's feedback on a final paper that I have to turn in for my class.
