Product Description
Get your students to engage with content and with one another as they learn about the the Salem Witch Trials. This product contains a two-day lesson plan designed to promote student engagement.

On Day 1, you will read aloud a short-reading about the Puritans and the Salem Witch Trials. You will pause ten times in the reading to present the students choices as to WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? You will give the students three different options (A, B, C) and they will write their answers on an ANSWER SHEET provided for them. Other students will be asked to check their answers and then initial their ANSWER SHEET. You will then give the correct answer. This is done ten times throughout the reading. This approach gets students to really engage in the content that you are trying to teach as they try to figure out WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? When they are done, you will have your students work on a RESPONSE SHEET which will ask them to write and make sketches about the Puritans and the Salem Witch Trials.

On Day 2, you will get your students to work cooperatively together. Placed in groups of five, they will be given a fifteen question STUDY GUIDE on the Puritans and the Salem Witch Trials. They will use that STUDY GUIDE to play the fast-paced and exciting BUMP GAME together. When they are done, you will have your groups work together on two interdependent cooperative group activities designed to get them talking and working together in a truly cooperative fashion. Using the STUDY GUIDE questions for content, both the SHARE-SHEETS and the INTERDEPENDENT CROSSWORD PUZZLES activities give each student different sheets and different information that all the members of their group will need. They will need to communicate openly and work together effectively to succeed. Both of the cooperative activities come with answer keys.
