1) Divide students into groups of three to five.
2) As a class review the list of issues, facts, and terms created in the first lesson in this series and decide which are the most important. (Possible list items are included below.)
3) From the shortened list created in Step 2, assign each group one item.(Depending on the size of the list, Step 2 might not be necessary.)
4) Assignment (To be started in class)
a) Write a two- or three-paragraph explanation of the given term, issue or fact.
b) Develop a method for sharing this with the class with an emphasis on creativity.(I.e.-Power Point presentation, notes on the board, handout or pamphlet, photos, original song, poem, etc.)
c) A description of the presentation should be submitted for approval either at the end of the class meeting or a set deadline.
5) On an assigned day, groups will present their topic and be prepared to answer questions from the class. Each group will probably need at least fifteen minutes. Copies of the group’s written explanation and presentation tool should be given to the teacher.
