This engaging, flipped lesson on the controversial Mexican-American War is differentiated to meet the diverse needs of our middle school students.
A flipped lesson is one in which a student completes an assignment at home and then comes to class the next day with the completed assignment. The assignment is then used by the teacher to drive instruction that day. Please bear in mind that many flipped lessons involve the use of technology for the assignment…this lesson does not. Instead, I use a traditional handout that students complete and then use that handout to drive the motivational activity for the lesson the following day.
