Buyer re: Greece and Rome Entire Unit
Hi,

I was just looking at this unit and was thinking it might be good for my 9th grade history class. Do you think some of the lessons might be too young for this age group? Also, do you use a book that goes along with this unit or can you use online resources? I was looking at the sample homework and it looked like they needed a book to complete it. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

This would be perfect for 9th grade. I originally created it for my Freshman (9th grade) World History class. A few of the activities expect students to do outside research, however that could be through either a textbook or online resources.

I hope that helps, let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Deione,

I have never taught government for more than a single semester, so these lessons would greatly help out with that.
Government class activities: 15 lessons in 1! = $20
Introduction Government ENTIRE UNIT - $20
Legislative, Executive, Judical Branch Activities > 20 in 1! = $25
Legislative, Executive, Judical Branch Notes = $15
All lesson plans follow those standards.

This activity will provide you with 15 lessons that could be used for a semester of Government. However, I would guess that you would need more than 15 lessons to cover an entire semester. I have other lessons titled "Introduction Government ENTIRE UNIT", "Legislative, Executive, Judical Branch Activities > 20 in 1!" , "Legislative, Executive, Judical Branch Notes". If you downloaded all of these, you would be able to cover an entire semester!

If you download two of these, and then send me your email address. I will send you the third lesson for free!

Hi, Can you send me more information about this? I am interested but the preview doesn't show much. What kind of activities are involved?
Thanks!

Matt Campbell  (TpT Seller)
Sure!

Here is the opening paragraph: For years you have lived under the fear and tyranny of your teacher. Constantly assigning homework assignments every night and creating tests that are unbearable. Imagine what would happen if one day that teacher stopped coming, and you were put in charge of the class. You and your classmates know that you still need to take the final and pass, but this time you are in charge of how the class is going to do that. How will you run the classroom?

It's a simple activity that asks the students a series of questions designed to take them through a scenario of what they would do if they were put in charge of the class. Who would rule, how would you decide, etc. The students typically love this day. I like to pretend to be a student during this day and help them figure it out. Good luck!

Hello,

I have just looked at the file and it is uploaded correctly. I have sold this lesson a few times without this feedback. If you would like to provide me with your e-mail address, I would be happy to send you this lesson in a different version of word, perhaps your operating system does not support the newest office products.

Buyer re: Constitution Activities and Notes
Hi Matt,

Can you give me a summary about your checks and balances simulation? What exactly do the students do during that activity? Do they practice checking each other with different real world topics or problems?
February 19, 2013 Report inappropriate comment
n/a
Matt Campbell  (TpT Seller)
Thank you for this question. This activity is 4 pages long. Here are some of the instructions for this activity:

1) Divide the class into three groups: Executive, Legislative
and Judicial branches of government. Each student should
have a copy of the Constitution with them.

2. In each round the teacher will give each branch of government
an opportunity for an unconstitutional "Power Grab". The
remaining two groups have two minutes to find proof from the
Constitution (amendments included) by Article, section and
clause, why the power grab is unconstitutional.

3. When a person thinks he finds the appropriate check he yells
"check". He must be prepared to respond with the answer
immediately. If wrong, others may try to block the grab for
power with the two minutes, alternating between branches
until the two minutes are gone or the answer is correct.

The notes do not include a powerpoint. I typically used this lesson with a smartboard, where I showed the students a portion of the notes at a time. The notes themselves come with a student version with the notes half filled in. It can also be used with an overhead just as simply.

D300 is the school district that I work in. So that particular example is based on my school district. I would advise to take the concept and adapt it to your own district.

Buyer re: Renaissance and Reformation Entire Unit
I purchased your Renaissance/Reformation Unit expecting 48 pp/slides but, unfortunately, received only a 17 page word doc. More perplexing is that 15 of the 17 pages have a title with no further information. Ex: p 3 "Day 1 Main Activity;" no further info is on the page...and this is the case for pages 3-17! Please let me know how to obtain the remainder of your unit plan! Thanks. Bridget

Matt,

I purchased your unit on Greece and Rome and was curious if you had an outline or guide at all of how you used / implemented these lessons? Specifically, the notes, were those just lectures, or did you hand those out as guided notes?

Anything would be helpful.

Thanks
October 6, 2012 Report inappropriate comment

Matt Campbell  (TpT Seller)
I don't have a specific guide, but if you notice it is laid out by day and type. For instance, the first activity is Day 1 Bell Ringer. I use Bell Ringer's at the beginning of every activity to activate prior learning and create a context for the lesson of that day. The second activity is a warm up, which is an activity I personally ask the students to work in with assigned partners. This activity directly leads into the "Main Activity" which is the specific way I will deliver content to the students. In example, the main activity for day 1 is the rise of greek civilization notes. I personally delete out the content and pass out the notes for students to take notes "fill in the blank" style. And then I lecture on the smartboard or chalkboard. Each day also has homework coming from someting called an "objective guide." I have created this objective guide to ensure that the students are given a daily assessment which ensures the students are responsible for understanding the definitions and major concepts from that day's lessons. I actually give the students the entire objective guide ahead of time, and ask them to work on it day by day. This helps if students miss a day, they know what they missed, and their "study guide" is already complete before the test, so instead of racing to get it done, they can start studying it. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

This activity does not come with a map. It is free to download, so feel free to check it out. When I use it in class, I provide the students with the page in the textbook that has a map of america, but I took it out since each teacher uses a unique textbook. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Sure, I love this activity! It covers some of the main topics leading to the civil war and guides them through a timeline activity, however they are not allowed to use words and must rely on pictures and symbols. Its great because the students have to truly understand it in order to represent it visually.
