I use this student packet to guide our unit on WWII. Most times I do not use the textbooks provided and would rather create my own. Since this is a word doc, you can change or add anything to meet the needs of your classroom and students.
This particular series of lessons has multiple video clips to help with visual learning
This is a great way to keep everything connected and kept together so students aren't losing assignments.
Argumentative Essay prompt is included as an assessment along with 2 comprehension quizzes. Also, includes a mini research project. Lends itself to a DBQ type of research assessment.
I have included a description of the video clips I use as well as some places where you can find them. I have also given some tips on how I use this packet as well as grading information.
Duration: This usually takes about 3-4 weeks of 55 minute classes meeting everyday.
