3. Students will popcorn read pages of the lesson. One student will read until the teacher says stop, student will pick another student to continue where previous student stopped until teacher says stop, and repeat. 4. Conduct discussion while popcorn reading. Use prompts to guide discussions: o Why did sharecroppers usually stay poor? o Describe the Ku Klux Klan and what they did? o What were some disappointments of the Reconstruction? o What is the importance of the Jim Crow laws? 5. Students will work independently or in pairs on the Extend Lesson 5 activities on page 486-487. 6. Explain the activities and expectations to students. Allow them to pick between the activities: Make Your Own Poster or Write About It 7. Students should read the content on the pages for more information about the activity they choose to complete. 8. CLOSURE: Students will share and explain their extended activity to the whole class. Whole group discussion will occur following presentations. F. Assessment: What will you use to measure student understanding? I will use informal assessment based on reading and discussions. Rubrics for the extend activity are on page T487. Posters and essays should be accurate and complete based on information within past lessons. Explain how you will know students understand the concepts from the lesson. I will know students understand the content of this lesson when they can effectively explain and describe events that occurred during the end of the Reconstruction and the effects they have on various people. G. Reflection: 1. Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach? This entire lesson should be pretty easy to teach. The lesson gives students a lot of freedom to make their own choices on activities to complete which should be fun too. 2. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach? Because we have not seen a Reconstruction period like this in a long time, I think some of the various events might be difficult for students to fully comprehend since they are not familiar. 3. How will you follow up or extend this lesson?

The follow up for this lesson will be in a formal assessment based on the content of the entire unit. 4. What will you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? I will answer all questions and misconceptions students have through small group or one-on-one time with students. 5. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I dont think any part of the lesson needs to change. The activity might take longer than a day to complete though. 6. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? The most difficult part of writing this lesson was coming up with an activity that had an appropriate connection to the lesson. We have done a lot of different activities throughout the lesson and coming up with something different was difficult.
