The purpose of this activity is to help students discern what changes and what stays the same regarding prohibition efforts past and present.
Students will work in small groups (10 documents) using one document. A variety of documents are included, some reading based and others with charts for different learning styles and levels.
Prepare the lesson by printing out the documents.
Explain the purpose to the students and review the Group Activities Slides.
Review the Past and Present Chart with students and discuss what stays the same and what has changed.
To check for understanding, ask students to answer the exit slip.
To complete the lesson, read responses to exit question three to the class.
An extension of this activity could be to ask students to write an argumentative essay on continuity and change with Prohibition in the United States.
I use this lesson on a 90-minute block and it requires the entire block to complete. It is a great way to enhance research skills, listening, and discussion.
Thanks for your interest.
