For this first lesson, I first introduced the students to Glogster and showed them a Glogster tutorial video. We then went to the computer lab for the students to complete a study guide on Old Alabama Town by using the virtual tour. The students enjoyed looking at the virtual tour of Old Alabama Town. To end this lesson, we discussed how Old Alabama Town is different from Alabama now.
For my second lesson of my Montgomery Unit, the students first completed a class KWL chart on the Civil Rights Movement. I then showed a video about the Civil Rights Movement, and the students completed a matching study guide while watching the video. We had to watch the video 2-3 times in order for the students to complete their study guides. After the video, I read aloud the next chapter of The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 to the students.
