Product Description

Completely ready to use! | This is the opening activity for my Animal Farm unit. It is essentially a period long anticipation guide (but I call it an Idea Trailer; I think it sounds better) that forces students to look at a large volume of ideas and respond to the ones that are most difficult/interesting. After I backwards design my unit, I make sure all of the ideas we are going to cover are foreshadowed in this. So, this activity is exactly aligned to what I teach and want students to learn through Animal Farm: Ideas, Socratic Circles, Essay Prompts, etc.. Feel free to alter and add to it to fit what you do.

I try to make one of these for each unit.

This activity works best in groups of 3 students, pretty well with 2, and not well with 1 or 4 or more. This activity requires students to be intellectual and ethical checks and balances for each other. With 1 student, there is no one else to hold decision making accountable. With 4 or more, there is too much disagreement and chaos to get the analysis done. If I have time, I use this on the last day of the unit to see if students have changed their ideas from what we have learned and seen.
