Materials/Resources/Technology: - The Pantheon board will be used as a class work as a class on the Know, and Want to know parts of the worksheet (KWL worksheet provided) - The projector will be used to show the Prezi I will be using about Gandhi (Prezi PDF provided) Teachers Goals: - As a teacher I hope to have the students be able to identify forms of civil disobedience and how they could apply this themselves - As a teach I want to be able to use the technology in the classroom more smoothly than the first two time I taught - I want to effectively hold the students attention while I give my brief lecture and have them fully participate in class


Start of Class: Get class working on the KWL worksheet as they come in Introduction of Lesson: Introduce that topic for the day, Gandhi and Civil Disobedience. Then have them as a class talk about what they already know and what they want to know about Gandhi and Civil Disobedience and discuss how we will come back to the sheet at the end about what they learned Lesson Instruction: Use the Prezi to talk about Gandhis life and his influence using civil disobedience. Then discuss the people influenced by Gandhi and their uses of civil disobedience Assessments/Checks for Understanding: The assessment will be having the students write down answers to an open ended questions asked in class such as: - How did Gandhi first gain his political activism? - What was Gandhis influence on the U.S. Civil Rights Movement? - What was one of the most recent acts of Civil Disobediance in popular culture? Then ask the students to discuss any other lingering questions that they have that may not have been answered by the informational session. At the end of the Prezi there are a few quotes and pictures to ask the students If they feel they were influenced by Gandhi or not.





Closure/Wrap-Up/Review: Discuss with the students how this relates to their bigger pictures of Buddhism and Hinduism and the ideologies and beliefs Self-Assessment: My self assessment is taking the comments from the kids Asking myself if they could be elaborated on better if I asked more critical or guiding questions.
