Reflection: Self-Talk U.S. Timelines with Register Receipt Paper - Section 3: Closure


The kids really threw themselves into this little project.  I think it had everything to do with freedom.  Often, we limit the students, without even thinking.  With this activity, they had numerous choices: Students to work with, selecting whatever time period they wanted to write, and creating a unique timeline without a specific template. 

Freedom to choose is a motivator.
