Product Description
Students are to create a top-ten list of the most defining moments of the decade. For each moment, students need to:
1. Provide a name for the event.
2. Provide the year for the event.
3. Provide a theme for the event. (examples: Political, Economic, Religious, Social, etc.) Every teacher is different regarding these themes, so you could create your themes on the
board for students to use.
4. Provided their justification. This can be done several ways. Why they included the event on their list at all? Why they place the event on that particular level? Why they put the even above or below another event? How it impacted life in the United States or the world? etc. (It is up to you as the teacher---I tend to give my students all of these options and they can pick for themselves.)

Follow Up Discussions:
Students can present their top-ten list to the class. If you have several groups or the whole class do the same decade, they will begin to compare and contrast each other's lists. I have also had success showing students the following film clips after they present and then have a discussion.
