Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Activating Prior Knowledge - Section 3: Did They Get It?


Today's exit ticket is different from my usual writing assignment.  Of course, I would always prefer my students to write in beautiful prose, but my goal today is for students to tell me what they know about slavery, abolitionists, emancipation, and civil rights.  They can give me that information in the form of a paragraph, a list, or a timeline.

This exit ticket is going to be especially useful in the coming days as we begin our work with these topics.  I want to be aware of any misconceptions my students may have, so that I can be sure to address them as we move through the unit.
