Partake in the “Big Ideas” spoken about in the new CCSS guidelines. This unit will help guide your students through this difficult, yet accessible, text.
Achieve positive results in creating analytical thinkers by nurturing your students’ abilities and giving them the necessary tools to develop critical reasoning skills. This can be achieved through close textual analysis of small sections of the Great Books.
While all of my units on TpT engage students in complex, higher-order thinking, my philosophy units especially do so.
This is a self-contained unit on textual analysis; everything you need is here.
You could use this unit as a beginning point of any class where you are engaging your students in textual analysis or critical thinking.
You could use this lesson, as I do, at the beginning of teaching the entire History of the Peloponnesian War.
This unit could be used as a stand alone lesson for High School, College, or University.
Keep this lesson on file in case of emergencies - where you need an extra week of material or leave this material for a sub to use.
I use Google Classroom for all of my assignments. I create the assignment in Google slides or as a Google doc - I post the assignment and Classroom makes a copy of the file (for each student) - they simply hit “turn in” when they are ready to submit. It’s accessible anywhere through Google Chrome. It is their own file with their name on it. They may also share the file with you or with other students when they are doing group work.
