FUN FRIDAY: Got any good GOSSIP about the Berlin blockade?

December 7, 2012

Looking for a new active learning technique that will work for students in middle and high school? Try the GOSSIP game described in this student teacher’s post about an engaging social studies lesson on WWII and the Berlin blockade.

I love this sort of lesson as it honors so many different learning styles and preferences. Social students will love the chatting pieces, those needing movement get a bit of it, and those who can’t get enough of the Common Core get to do some close readings (ok, just wanted to see if you were paying attention-LOL)! Seriously, this seems like an efficient and effective way to immerse students in the text without boring them silly. Hats off to Ms. Wojnarowicz for teaching such an inventive lesson and for letting us all know about it.
