Product Description
Are you tired of having your students copy notes with very little engagement? The Global Guys have devised a method that will engage your students and help them make meaningful connections by utilizing our FREE Theme List

This 45-55 minute student driven lesson will accomplish all of the following:


•Teach Content: (in this case Ming Dynasty)
•Introduce all the big ideas from the end of the Monglos - Zheng He's Voyages
•Hold students accountable for their own learning
•Show you yet another powerful method of using our theme list
•Provide students with the content through very simple notes but will make them apply their knowledge in very meaningful ways
•Encourage students to utilize the sophisticated vocabulary of your course
•Encourage students take their own notes and put the information into their own words
•Allow students to organize their data into both Political, Economic, Social and Ecological Categories as well Internal and External arguments
•It will make your job so much easier (We really mean this)

The Global Guys came to this method after years of experimentation and finally realized that giving notes really doesn't work! In the past students would passively copy notes and that was that. It was a lot of downtime that was unecessary when they could be engaged in meaningful learning. The great part of this approach is that it is on the students and you are there to encourage and guide not lecture. After lecturing for years this has the potential to be a game changer.
