PowerPoint Download: American Constitution - Introduction and Assumptions
[Powerful introductory lesson for the first day of your Constitution Unit! Immerse your students in a compelling lesson centered around their personal beliefs and assumptions about government. Lesson begins with an engaging and challenging Warm Up where students must define related content vocabulary terms - as a teacher, you get to formatively assess your students' prior knowledge! Next, front loaded vocabulary guides students' understanding for the remainder of the lesson. The main piece of this lesson is student involvement and student-led discussion via the Hunger Games! Students will share their assumptions to a critical thinking question, then share as a class, finally students will compete in a short, friendly competition to see who gets to stay and who has to leave to find a new group or partner. Students get to hear multiple voices and share their assumptions with many different students! Lesson ends with a powerful Exit Card rooted in student choice. Empower your students!]
