Lincoln Line Graph
Students viewed a biography of Abraham Lincoln this week and took notes, with a twist. Instead of writing notes traditionally, students were given sixteen topics about Lincoln's life (two examples are his childhood and his role as Commander-in-Chief during the Civil War). Each student wrote down facts for each topic and then ranked them on a line graph that ranged from +5 to -5. When students were finished with their notes and graphs they then reflected on their graph and wrote conclusions about their rankings and justified their opinions.
