PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need a quick mini-lesson to review or introduce historical context? Want to frame a historical event, a novel, or a biography unit? Grab this quick lesson to teach what historical context IS and get practice with analyzing it in specific situations!

In this lesson, students will:
• Learn a definition for historical context (with several examples)
• Gradual Release Learning: Practice activity identifying and explaining the historical context for people, events, artifacts, and complex issues
• Exit Ticket: check for understanding and see if the information stuck!

I first made this activity when my students could only somewhat define/explain the concept of historical context for a cross-curricular biography project that we were doing. This lesson enabled them to better explain why the actions of famous people were significant.

Bring this lesson into your classroom if you want to…
• Formatively teach and assess the concept
• Briefly introduce it to middle or early high school students
• Reteach the concept as review
• Differentiate (or use it in a station!)
• Include it in another unit

This 4-page download includes a ready-to-print student handout and an answer key. You get BOTH the editable Word doc AND a PDF!
