This assignment asks high school and education students to create a world history lesson plan on a topic of their choice 1450 to the present. This assignment includes careful instructions on how to create a quality lesson- for example, how a primary document or a powerpoint are to be constructed for the most effective classroom use. It also provides links to helpful websites so that teachers do not have to explain how to write an objective or how to include class participation. Writing lesson plans is an effective and dynamic assessment for students but it is not as simple as it might seem. I expect my students to turn in a quality lesson plan and this worksheet is designed to help them do just that.
