I urge my buyers to purchase the Powerpoint that goes along with this power point. I created a socratic seminar in which students argue if Imperialism was negative or positive? The first day I broke them up into partners, they both have to choose one side only and argue that side. The next day I use the power point to show the documents which go along exactly with the handout.
For example: First I put the classroom in a two circles one inner circle and one outer circle (this is so the partners are sitting in front of each other) think of it as a tag team…only the partner in the inner circle can speak (but they can tag their buddy behind them at any time for help)…then I will put up document 1 on the powerpoint (then the students can go at it in a respectful manner) then I will put up the next document and so on. Good luck, email me for help firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions…I also have several rubrics for this and written lesson plans.
