Collaborative (Voice Level .5 - 1) 40 minutes: 
We will be reading short biographies about Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson together as a station. You will then have time to work to create either a rap battle or write two 5 sentence paragraphs comparing Hamilton and Jefferson using information you have learned. 





All assignments should be completed on a piece of lined paper. 

At the end of this station, reflect on the objective you just worked to complete. On your paper you need to write whether or not you met the objective AND how you know this. For example, "Yes, I met the objective because I was able to annotate and I am confident I answered at least 8 of the 9 questions correctly."
