Articles of Confederation - James Monroe Warm Up/Review Lessons Using First Day Covers.
This eBook contains twelve warm up/review lessons for U.S. History. Each lesson is based on the students analyzing the images found on a first day cover (an envelope containing a commemorative stamp, appropriate postmark and artwork). The lessons provide the teacher with strategies to hook students on the topic of study, such as questions targeting the 5W/H as well as analyzing, generalizing, drawing inferences or conclusions, and cause and effect. Images can be projected onto a white board for whole class discussion or printed out for individual student work. Other primary sources (diary entries, letters, resolutions and excerpts from speeches) where appropriate may be included in the lesson, and each lesson has a concluding activity. The lessons can be a quick introduction to a fuller lesson all ready created by the teacher, or it can be a way to provide students with the images needed to remember the facts necessary for the state standardized test. The lessons include John Hanson and the Articles of Confederation, The Northwest Ordinance, The Preamble, James Madison and Separation of Powers, The Bill of Rights, Eli Whitney and the Cotton Gin, The Louisiana Purchase, Robert Fulton and the Steamboat, Francis Scott Key and the Star Spangled Banner, Battle of New Orleans, Erie Canal, and President James Monroe.
