This is a fun lesson that is highly engaging and rigorous focusing on the impact of the Cotton Gin. It is designed as a cooperatively learning exercise where students will practice using technology to create a final product, writing and reading skills and speaking and listening skills all of which align with the Common Core standards.
This lesson can be differentiated for EL Students and Students with Learning Disabilities. Not only that, I have provided a number of different methods of implementing this lesson that best suits your students and the time you have.
Students will practice evidence-based writing, analyze a variety of different types of informational text and learn how to create an infographic!
