Lesson idea implementation:


Using Timeline, students will complete a timeline focusing on the causes, events and results of the American
Revolution. They will be able to display date/time period, who was involved, and pictures/visuals to portray
their information accurately. The students will be grouped together in groups of 3-4 and will construct a
graphic organizer based on this time period. This lesson will take around 2-3 class times to complete. They will
be able to access multiple internet resources, the textbook, and primary sources to complete this assignment.
Also, the students will have worked with Timeline before, so they have previous experience using the tool.
This is their final project to test their knowledge about the American Revolution.

This timeline must be creative and include visuals that relate to the topics being discussed. Student learning
will be assessed on the quality of the timeline, along with the presentation given. Their work will be posted on
online for their parents, families and other peers to see. The students will be allowed to privately grade each
other and themselves for part of the participation and collaboration grades. This activity is student-centered,
and the teacher is also a learner who will observe the students and learn from them.
