Description of how to implement in the class: To introduce this unit, the teacher will show the
video relating to this topic. After viewing the video, the teacher will allow a minute or two for
students to write down two things they remember from the video. They will then share the two
things with their classmate sitting next to them. Teacher will allow students to then share aloud to
the class. Teacher will begin to ask engaging, leading questions about famous people they know
and their contributions.
Then, the lesson will begin and teacher will start instructing about historical famous figures and
the contributions they made. This will be done through a PowerPoint, with students following
along and filling in their note handouts glued into their Social Studies notebook. Once the
PowerPoint is finished, teacher will show another video that is more complex than before.
Students will then write down five things from the video independently. The teacher will collect
these. Teacher will then have a follow up activity. Students will get into pairs and be given a list of
options: create a skit, create a PowerPoint and turn it into a movie, create a book, or create a
brochure of their favorite historical figure that they just learned about.
