Original Lesson: I created a Peardeck for this lesson that was clunky and too much information.
What I Changed: I created a keynote presentation that included parts of my original lesson, but narrowed the focus down to only include some KEY parts (see what I did there?). Then, I used Apple Classroom to help facilitate the lesson. I airdropped the presentation to students so they could flip through it at their leisure. I started class with an inquiry question and asked students to think about what they have control over in their own life to help them figure out what federalism is about. Students used keynote to fill out a slide and present it to the class.
Impact: I think this was a great lesson to help students understand federalism from a perspective that matters to them. It was a fun lesson that got students talking about things they did and did not have control over in their own lives. We had a fun class discussion, and I heard from students who normally didn't speak in large group discussions. #d214

You made a couple of “Key” 😉 take away points here for me:
“help students understand federalism from a perspective that matters to them”
“I heard from students who normally didn't speak in large group discussions.”
Wonderful lesson switch!
