I am Amber D and this is a lesson for any subject and any level. It works best in English Language Arts and Social Studies/History, but can be altered to suit the needs of your class. The idea is that your students are given several topics and as a group act as "gatekeepers" deciding what information they will share with their viewing audience and what they will withhold. It is a dynamic lesson that gets students to work together, but also debate and argue for their viewpoint. It is engaging and once set up, you get to be an observer, because the students really do run with it. You see what they have learned, how well they can convey the importance of concepts to others, and the lesson may reveal what needs to be reviewed or what was misinterpreted. It serves well as a review lesson to spiral important information. It can be used to introduce new concepts. This lesson can be easily modified and suggestions are provided.
