Reflection: Pacing Social Studies Connection: A Manifest Destiny Debate Circa 1840 Day 2 - Section 3: Debate


Net year I want to definitely leave more time for this activity and more like it. I want the kids to have more time to read and prepare. They did well today, but they would've been better had I given them a day or two to read, have good overall discussions and possibly meet with more small groups. 

  More time next year
  Pacing: More time next year
