Lesson Objectives: Students will be able to:

2. Discuss with 100% clarity the concepts that make social change an integral part of society.
3. Present examples of these concepts and how they occur in today’s society.
4. Outline the main points of the assigned sections for their group.

Equipment and Supplies Needed: Textbook, chalkboard, chalk, paper, pen (pencil).

Anticipatory Set: The anticipatory set for this lesson will be a brief discussion of the Revolutionary War. The set will include an overview of why the colonist’s desired freedom from the oppressive rule of the English government, the effects this rule had on the colonists and the steps taken to accomplish the change. The anticipatory set will serve to enforce the concept that social change can and will take place given the correct circumstances.

Sequence of Learning Activities:

2. Break in to three groups
3. Discuss the objectives of this group project. Design grading rubric.
4. Assign sections of responsibility to each group
5. Distribute timetables to each group
6. Allow specified time for each group to complete project

Assignments: Each group will receive a specific section of Chapter 4 as their area of responsibility. Each group will receive two days to work together in order to present the assigned section to the rest of the class. Each group will during their presentation cover all key points (highlighted words) within the assigned area. Their presentation will also include coverage of the two questions at the end of the chapter (page 135, study guide).

Closure: The lesson will conclude with each group being graded during their presentations, according to the rubric designed in class.
