Captivate your class and their interest in history by supplementing your lesson plans with a historical journal about what happened this week in history! I have scoured the web to find significant and relatable historical topics for discussion or writing prompts. I have prepared five for every week of the year, with two questions for each event to analyze in just a few minutes, moving you on with your lesson, and injecting extra learning into every class meeting!
This document contains five historical prompts for the first week of December.
Plus, ad an added FREE bonus, you will have access to an mp3 podcast were my middle school students and I discuss the journal prompts in a round table for your class to listen to, comment on, or respond to in your own classroom conversations! A link to each session is available inside the document. You can also listen to the podcast for many free historical study guides and conversations on the Hauger History Podcast (subscribe on iTunes) or here: http://haugerhistory.podbean.com/
