Transcript of Induction Presentation - Choices Program
British Imperialism in India
Content Sequence & Modifications
Make complex international issues understandable and meaningful for students
Puts them “in the position of decision-makers at an historical turning point.”
I wanted something that would do justice to the complexity of defining issues, challenges, and perspectives of the Cold War and post-Cold War eras.
Units are available for all of the major topic areas in the Core Knowledge Sequence.
Geared more toward high school
Dense reading at times
Less text supports than typical middle school text.
Core Knowledge Content
INDIAN NATIONALISM and INDEPENDENCE
The Salt March
Partition of India into Hindu & Muslim states
Students use chronology to organize historical events and people.

Instruct students to find information about: When? Who was involved? What happened? What were the causes and effects of the event?
Analyze as a class:

Jigsaw Group activiy:
Reading divided into sections, with one section assigned to each group.
Groups determined most important information from their section.

While there are many cool, interesting, relevant and often edgy topics to explore with my students...
...Core Knowledge does not provide a text book for this content sequence.
Lack of affordable, high- quality options with the necessary content and a middle school reading level.
Met with content colleagues at 2 Core Knoweldge Conferences
Conducted my own research
