A SmartBoard Notebook file that contains simple discussion prompts and a possible writing assignment on the causes of the Mexican Revolution. The prompts and assignment are based on a very good student-made Prezi, which can be found and downloaded at the following URL:
When first used, it was done as a two-step exercise. Students viewed the Prezi and created a simple bullet list of causes of the Mexican Revolution. In the following lesson, students worked in groups to add details to each of the bullets, in order to enhance and deepen understanding. This was then used as a bridge to a class discussion.
The discussion could be done as an individual or small group assignment.
The file is also convertible to a PDF if you choose to use it as a hard-copy handout.
