Lesson Plan: Teaching the Lesson: Activity 3

Activity 3: Small Group Project Work

This activity gives students a chance to synthesize what they have learned in their research and determine what to include in their presentations. You may find it useful to help students think about a three-part presentation in which they 1) present an opening statement that describes the problem and tells why they became interested in it; 2) desribe the various things they have done to educate themselves and the community about the problem, and 3) end with a clear statement of what action they are seeking from the City Council. Students also will need time to prepare any visual aids they want to use in their presentations. It is also a good time to review the rubric you and members of the community will use to assess their work.
