2/15 Wednesday

Guiding Questions: 
How was Indian Removal Justified? 
What was the experience of the Cherokee on the Trail of Tears? 

Collaborative: Students will reinforce prior knowledge of the Indian Removal Act through the collaborative investigation of two primary sources, completing at least three rows of their Socratic Seminar Prep sheet, and generating at least 1 question. 


8.8.1. Discuss the election of Andrew Jackson as president in 1828, the importance of Jacksonian democracy, and his actions as president (e.g., the spoils system, veto of the National Bank, policy of Indian removal, opposition to the Supreme Court).
RH.6-8.2 - Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source 

ELD B.6 - Reading closely literary and informational texts and viewing multimedia to determine how meaning is conveyed.

Do Now (Voice Level 1) 5 Minutes: 
Rewrite today's objective on your tracker. 

Whole Group (Voice Level 1) 5 Minutes: 
Review Key Ideas: What did we learn yesterday about Indian Removal? What was one support for Indian Removal? What was one piece of evidence supporting the claim that Indian Removal was not justified? 

Collaborative (Voice Level 0) 37 Minutes: 
Task 1: We will read through Andrew Jackson's Message to Congress together

Task 2: Students will work in their table groups to read the second primary source by John G. Burnett. Highlight or underline at least two important details. What is some evidence that Indian removal was not justified based on this source?

Task 3: Complete your socratic seminar prep sheet. Remember you need to have a total of 6 pieces of evidence (3 from the Holt text we went over on Monday/Tuesday and 3 pieces of evidence from the texts today.) Need help generating questions for the seminar? Here you go! 

Early Finishers: Watch CNN, Play Free Rice, research the experience of other Native Americans on the Trail of Tears! 

Exit Ticket (Voice Level .5 - 1) 2 minutes: 
Make sure you've completed your objective tracker, including adding + or - sign on your calendar. 

Make sure you are ready to participate in the socratic seminar tomorrow/Friday! This will take place during the first half of class.
