Lesson PlanThe main objective of this class is for the students to learn about the benefits and negatives of different energy sources but there are some other things going on too This lesson also focuses on self advocacy and team work skills. The first part of the class the students need to work in teams to become experts in their own field (the energy source they are assigned to) and then to try and communicate what they learned after to their peers. There is also a say write do in this class, say is the end when they are debating, write is in the middle when they have to write down what they are going to say later and what they learned in this class, and finally the doing, is the research at the start too.(Under 3 ratings)
