#OER Week! Day 5: Planning a Revolutionary Dinner Party

The “Revolutionary Dinner Party” is an activity I created to assess students on motivations behind championing independence or remaining loyal in the years before the American Revolution.  Students analyze primary sources in a lesson plan from UMBC and then create a seating arrangement for those guests, carefully explaining their rationale for where everyone is seated.  Next year, I would like to extend this activity by actually simulating the dinner party with food, conversation, and all.

Tomorrow I'll share a way to bring STEM into the classroom for little to no money while covering PreColumbian America.

Until then,
