This week, I'm going to highlight my European Colonization Reading Response Journals. These activities are great to use as warm-ups, or as a way to introduce the process of generating and testing a Social Studies hypothesis. Personally, I typically use them to introduce a topic.
My European Colonization set includes these 3 topics: Spanish colonization, French colonization, and English colonization. In each, students are presented with a question about which they generate a hypothesis. Then, they read a brief selection and complete 5 Marzano aligned tasks while considering the accuracy of their initial hypotheses. The activity concludes with them re-visiting and evaluating their hypotheses citing evidence from the reading.
So, click the link below to check out my European Colonization Reading Response Journals which is also available as part of a larger bundle, and don't forget to check out and follow my store for more great American History resources!
