How I Use It
I have used several units from the program. My student teachers also used some of the lessons. Easily modified; if needed. More information than I needed for some lessons. Did not use any of the games. Enjoyed the lesson on different types of propaganda. Went well; small groups rotating through classroom, evaluating types of propaganda.
My Take
I think the lessons have potential. Meet most of our State Standards. Some will be used as stand-alone lessons; while others will be used in conjunction with the textbook.
