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 (historical) topics that are easy to relate to your class 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!
WATCH an example of 3/5 our dialog of these historical topics in my classroom, and then get the full resource to do the same in your class! https://youtu.be/HMuNtQE56ZY
This week's journals focus on questions inspired by: John Lennon, Charlie Brown Christmas, Otis Redding, World War II, and Leonardo DeVinci!
These prompts kick off the chance to explore the events deeper in spin-off research or projects.
