Hi there - I just purchased your Industrial Revolution Assembly Line Simulation and have some questions:
1. You mention roles (men/women/children) and wages, but never explain how or when you assign those in the lesson. I see where you give students numbers for their specific line jobs, but when do you bring the wages/genders in? Do you ever pay them with 'fake' money or is that slide just so they see the differences in pay?
2. The supplies list included 50 pieces of scrap paper only. How do you set the kids up to design their assigned soldier part? Do you cut out the pieces beforehand? If that's the students' job, are they drawing it, cutting it out, then pasting it on a quarter page of scrap paper that is passed to them by the student next to them on the line?
There seem to be gaps in your Powerpoint slides and I'd love to have some clarification so I can try this in my classroom.
Also, double-check your spelling on the question sheet. There are quite a few places that need editing and I'm kind of bummed I have to do that after spending money to use this lesson.

Thanks for any further guidance you can give!

I just uploaded a revised product. I revised the worksheet and added more instructions in the power point. To help clarify even more I will answer your questions:
1. The wages slide is just to give the students an idea of how little pay workers received. On the same slide it says which # workers are to be children. They put one arm behind their back since children work slower than adults. I do not give them any actual "payment" but you could if you wanted.
2. You cut up the pieces of paper before hand. I would suggest keep scrap paper that has a blank page on one side and then cut them in squares. The students are only to draw their assigned part on the paper. For example, the first person will draw their assigned part, then pass it to the next person and immediately pick up another blank paper and draw the same part again. The manager can be at the end throwing away the bad soldiers and keeping the good ones. You could also play the part of the "boss" and yell at the managers to make their workers do a better job. After a few minutes the students will get bored with making the same part over and over again...just like the workers in a factory. Let me know if you have any further questions.

I am assuming you purchased the following item?
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Post-WWII-American-Society-Power-Point-Lecture-US-History-221548


If the video clips do not play in the power point, you need to close the PP and double-click on the video's to play them. (because you are using a different version of PP)

If you cannot play the video's, the best remedy is to download the free version of VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html). If they still don't play, right-click on video clip, choose "properties" and change to VCL. You may also want to contact your technology aid at your school since they know the type of computer you have.

Please let me know if you are not successful. Also, the video's are not needed for the activity to be successful. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Buyer re: Stock Market Simulation Game (U.S. History)
Just curious - if you have the students calculate over 6 days, what other content are you covering those days? Also, do you use this as a warm-up over those days? Could this be modified to complete over 2 days?

I complete this lecture the first week of the unit:

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Causes-of-the-Great-Depression-US-History-516116

I will take 1 full day to begin the stock market game and then every day after that the first thing the students do is calculate their earnings for the next year. So, yes, I use the game as a warm-up. You can have the students buy and sell stock if they wish, but my students liked it more simplified so they didn't change the stock they owned throughout the entire game.

I also had the students complete the Great Depression Web Quest after I finished the lecture. They loved it!

Buyer re: BUNDLE Roots of Democracy (World History)
Does this BUNDLED unit include the influence of the Iroquois Nation had "about democracy, governmental structures, the rights of the individual and the public good?"
November 30, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
Chalk Dust Diva
Chalk Dust Diva  (TpT Seller)
The Bundle: "Roots of Democracy" does not include the Iroquois. It relates only to the following California State standards:

10.1 Students relate the moral and ethical principles in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, in Judaism, and in Christianity to the development of Western political thought.
1. Analyze the similarities and differences in Judeo-Christian and Greco-Roman views of law, reason and faith, and duties of the individual.
2. Trace the development of the Western political ideas of the rule of law and illegitimacy of tyranny, using selections from Plato's Republic and Aristotle's Politics.
3. Consider the influence of the U.S. Constitution on political systems in the contemporary world.

Hi! I would like to purchase this bundle, however, can you clarify something for me? When you list the parts included, do they include everything or just that one item mentioned? For example, this includes the forms of government PPT, but is it just the PPT or everything comes with that purchase normally? Thanks!

Everything comes with the purchase for each product. Therefore, if you read the description for the products you get all that is included; handouts, worksheets, lecture notes. You will have everything you need to teach this unit including a lesson plan. It's worth the price, especially during the sale! Happy shopping!

Thank you for the quick response. I have purchased the following presentation where notes would be great if you are selling them. I teach history, civics and French...new to the role in September.

-Types of Governments: Lecture, Postcard Activity, Review Game.
-The Federal System of Government (Federalism) Lecture, Activity & Game (Civics)
-What is Democracy? Lecture & Activity (CIVICS)

I also have the Political Spectrum presentation and Modern Technology Project -Post WWII (U.S. History but notes are not required for these.

Any tests you have for these subject areas would also be great! Thank you again. I’m very grateful for tpt and for teachers like you.

I will try to make your life easier. Three prep's is overwhelming! I need to know what type of history you are teaching (U.S. or World) and what grade level. Also, did you want fill-in notes for the students or teacher-notes? The first thing you need to do is create a pacing guide for the entire year. Then you will know how many days you have to teach each unit. I will begin adding "Bundles" for entire units in August. The bundles will include everything you will need the entire unit including pacing charts, lesson plans, review games, tests, etc. The Bundles will also be sold at a discount. Your school may also reimburse you for your expenses.

Hello Chalk Dust Diva! I have downloaded several of your history and civics presentations. Thank you for creating such great stuff.

I was wondering if you are selling notes to go with your presentations. Also, what about student assignments and tests? Anything you have to sell to a new high school teacher of three subjects who is overwhelmed, would be appreciated!
Thank you,

Thanks so much for purchasing my products. I am currently working on products for the first units of U.S. History, World History and Civics. I will also be posting tests, review games, pacing charts, and lesson plans for each unit also. I usually include lecture note templates with my lecture presentations. Is there a specific lecture you are looking for notes for? Also, If there is anything specific topic or product you are looking for, just let me know and I will post it ASAP. Make sure you follow me so you can get all of my new products, updated products and sale announcements. I love helping teachers so if you have any questions, please ask!

Debbie R. re: What is Democracy? Lecture & Reading Activity (CIVICS)
I am sorry this is a 9th grade class and I will teach it all year. I am teaching in a private school so there is no pacing guide or any standards to follow as I did in public school. So basicallyI will move thru the book at my pace. I could provide you with a couple of topics I have coming up in an email to see what you might have to supplement it. I am looking at the other units you provided. I am also teaching a world history class that I have no resources but the book so any help there is needed also.

Chalk Dust Diva  (TpT Seller)
I can help you with both classes. I will be spending my summer posting more products for World History and Civics. Let's go ahead and begin my completing one task at a time. Even though you don't have any standards you first need to create a pacing guide for each course. Using your school calendar, taking out the holidays and non-student days figure out how long you want to spend on each topic. This is essential you do this so you don't leave out important events or concepts. In fact, one could teach World War II for the entire year if they really wanted to. Once you have the "big picture" then email me back and let me know what your first units include. I will tell you which products will work best for you. P.S. For some reason you posted this question 8 times? Funny.

I am teaching in a private school so I really have no state standards to follow. I have the Civics book and what comes with it. I believe this is to be a year long class. I am on my own to teach it and need some resources.

I would begin by creating a year-long pacing guide and determine the number of days for each unit. Once that is done I can help you find the resources for each unit you could use.

I am teaching 10th grade civics which is alittle out of my comfort zone. In the textbook for Chpt. 1 The title is Citizenship and Govt. in a Democracy and Chpt. 2 the title is Roots of American Democracy. Where do you feel this would best used? Also could you explain better to me in what comes in this. I am so interested in anything you may have to supplement my teaching of this class

Two questions you need to consider: Do you have a district pacing guide? I don't make my lessons using the textbook, I use the pacing guide. Also, is this a semester class or a year-long class. I teach seniors for one semester. But, my school has a high population of English Language students, so my lessons will be perfect for 10th grade as well. I still have many more products I will be posting over the summer. You should probably begin with Unit 1: Roots of American Democracy. The products you may want to purchase for this unit would be:

You also need to look at your state standards and then make a pacing guide. My unit previews will help you create your units. Once you create your units, I can help you select the products to best fit those units.

No technology is needed unless you would like to include the non-mandatory activities at the end (see product descriptions). In that case, you would need 5 computers. Sometimes I don't have time to do the activities, so I skip them.

The Federalism Lecture reviews the division of powers between the national and state governments while the Federalist Papers only reviews the major concepts discussed in Federalist Papers #10, #51 and #78 (separation of powers, checks and balances and an independent judiciary. I use both lectures in my Civics class. I hope that answered your question.
