STEP 2 – TEACH YOUR PEERS:

Plan and present a lesson for the peers in your quads that synthesizes your research in a cohesive and engaging manner. 

Lessons must be no longer than 30 minutes (we should be able to get through two groups per class). By the end of your presentation, each of the peers in your quad should be able to answer the questions from your section of the “Laurier Era Guided Questions” handout.

Consider using:

  • Primary source documents, photographs, and political cartoons
  • Clips from video sources
  • Hands on activities to help consolidate learning
