Product Description
What goals do your students have for the next five years? What do their goals and their daily schedules show about what they individually value? This experiment asks students to behave as sociologists and to make observations about American society from the Revolutionary era to modern times. Students begin by creating their own goals and a daily schedule. Then, students’ compare their ideas to both Benjamin Franklin’s schedule from The Autobiography and Jay Gatsby’s schedule in Chapter 9. By the end of the experiment, students will address how American society changed from the Revolutionary era to the present day. I promise that your students will have many “now I see” moments with this experiment.

This packet includes the following:
1) Graphic organizer (two pages)
2) Schedule sheet (one page)
3) Guided group discussion handouts (three pages)
4) Reflection assignment (one page)
