Reflection: Real World Applications The Bill of Rights and You - Section 6: Closure


Understanding the topic of this Bill of Rights lesson is definitely a real world application in which my students have gained a thorough conceptual understanding through a variety of activities.  The exit ticket helps them to quickly reflect upon and write about what they learned in today's lesson.  Although I have my students to recite our class motto of "Failure is not an option, I'm getting better and better every day in every way," I still structure my class in a way in which our class culture allows my students to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes.
