Lesson Plan: Teaching the Lesson: Introduction

Introduction

Introduce or review the concept of a constitutional convention. Distribute the Constitutional Convention Rubric and discuss your expectations about what students should be doing and what they will get out of the activity. Form students into groups. Matt Johnson uses six groups of four students each to encourage diverse approaches that can be resolved through debate in Activity 4.
