Learning Target
Students will work together to create a presentation to teach an essay they have analyzed to the class.

Opening Session
Get with your groups, everyone grab a laptop, and let me get your names and laptop numbers written down! You’ll always use the same laptop in class 🙂

Work Session
Today your goal is to finish creating the lesson you will present to the class tomorrow. Remember, you should present the essay you analyzed to the class and explain its significance related to the American Dream.

You can create anything you want to help your presentation – a PowerPoint, Google Slides, Prezi, or similar medium would be great. If you choose to make a handout or something like that, talk to me about making copies for your classmates.

Remember, you’ll be graded on how well you teach the class, so do a good job!

Closing Session
Draw numbers! I’ll have everyone draw a number to decide what order the groups will present. 1-4, get ready to go tomorrow!

Assessment Strategies
Formative (group work); Summative (presentation)

Process (scaffolding, varied difficulties, flexible grouping strategies)
