History (Class) Repeats Itself - With A Virtual Twist
April 29, 2020
At the end of her Cold War unit, Ms. Morgan Lieske always holds a conference for her sophomore US History students to debate how it started. While this year's conference had to be held online, the format was able to remain almost identical.
Lieske split the class into two, so they each heard about 10 speeches from their classmates on a Google Meets call. She offered extra credit for those that dressed or acted with the demeanor of a historian, so some students showed up for the call wearing a bowtie or a jacket over a t-shirt and sweatpants.
