  1. Jerry –

    This lesson came together nicely. I like the idea of the mock trial. This will really have the students engaged as they dig through evidence to support their claims. And of course they will learn a lot in the process. I also like your assessment plan -the initial journal entry with subsequent entries to show what they are thinking. Good work!

  2. This is such a huge and important part of Alaska’s history it should not ever go untaught like it did in my AK history course in high school. Overall, I thought the lesson plan was engaging and sounded thought provoking and fun.

  3. Jerry-This is an excellent lesson plan! What an awesome approach to learn about such a devastating topic! I think your students will really enjoy getting involved in this and you may even have to crack out the gavel during their arguments 😉 I can’t wait to hear how this one goes in your classroom!! Thank you for sharing!
