How I Use It
If you are using with ELL or low literacy; you may have a problem; since many lessons are in original language. However, you could work students in pairs of your choosing to reduce the problem or us an abridged version of the reading.
My Take
Lessons are usually interesting; draw on primary source and add information about the subject beyond the textbook. Some articles could be discussed as a class, if warranted, and then progress to the activity. Some of the lessons are long (4 days) so you could not use them all the time; but some of them are worth the time for providing the Big Picture.
