PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION:
Route 66 is a highway that extends from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica,

Behavioral Objective (Do): Formulate why Route 66 began in Chicago

Transfer (Learning theory / citations):
Constructivism: the students knowledge is constructed through an active,
mental process of developing (via a PowerPoint presentation) and the
students are creators of this meaning and knowledge. Audrey Gray

Motivation (Teacher created): Teacher will dress as 1920s Chicagoan.

transportation policy. The Federal Highway Act drew the first line of
an interstate road and included the creation of the first

transcontinental highway in the world, crossing eight states and


opening up the thriving Chicago.

about Route 66 including history and route locations.
o Students will learn why Chicago and Santa Monica were chosen as
starting and ending points.

ANALYZE THE RESULTS:
o Students will learn that the concept of new, affordable mobility in the

RUBRIC (What does it measure?):

Informal Assessment: Ask students if they have any questions

Formal Assessment: FIFTEEN POINTS possible for completing assignment

Students understanding will be assessed through three (3) specific
PowerPoint presentation slides:
1.
Slide one (1) will be title page
Include one picture or graphic illustration (one point)
2.
Slide two (2) will include history of transportation in America during
the 1920s that helped the need / want of Route 66 (five points)
One paragraph with five complete sentences
o Introduction
o Three (3) supporting sentences showing evidence

CONCLUSION:
Students will determine that Route 66 was vital for Americas movement
west via automobiles. Share findings with class through final presentations.


SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER STUDY (Activities):
Have students find other cities along Route 66 and chart them along United
States Map
Have students locate references to Route 66 in multi-media (i.e. Route 66
song, Cars movie is similar to Route 66, etc.)
For fun: develop a brochure (PowerPoint, Word, Photoshop) for Route 66


CLOSURE:
Thank class for its enthusiasm to learn more about the expansion of transportation
and culture across America.

DIFFERENTIATED LEARNING ACTIVITIES (Learning centers, manipulatives,
special needs, etc.):

Gate: students can research 2 cities along Route 66 and explain why there
were main attractions along the route.

Learning Difficulties (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) :
Student(s) will work with Teaching Aid in order to research using internet
and publishing PowerPoint presentation

SDAIE Techniques:
Write internet site suggestions on board
Presentations can be 1:1 with teacher rather that in front of entire
class
