Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Responses to The Communist Manifesto: Individual Assessment - Section 3: Connecting Industrialism to Imperialism


This portion of the lesson was too difficult to ask a sub to lead on his or her own. My teaching partner could have done it, but I (selfishly) wanted to hear my students' responses so that I knew what direction to take conversations in the coming week. As such, we adjusted this lesson plan so that I could be there for the discussion. By moving this activity to Friday's class, I had to move something from Friday to today to make some time.

Thankfully, I had copies made of the Heart of Darkness excerpts, which included a brief overview of the story, historical context and literary merit (pdf copy of this packet available here). My teaching partner handed these packets out after students were done with the quiz (which took much longer than expected) and assigned the contextual reading as homework.
