PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson shows that not all conspiracies are crazy theories. It defines the term conspiracy and cites current (cheating, sexual abuse, banking scandals) as well as historical examples (the murder of Caesar, the Underground Railroad, Pearl Harbor, Watergate). It touches on revelations of massive spy and surveillance programs conducted by democratic governments with the help of private corporations. It also touches on how fake conspiracies have been used to justify questionable actions by different powers. It challenges students to look at themselves and their world with at least somewhat critical eyes. The teacher is free to modify the lesson in any manner that facilitates its use in the classroom. (This product has been very successfully classroom tested)

Conspiracy, conspiracy theory, history, Underground Railroad, Pearl Harbor, Watergate, politics, current events, critical thinking
