Dear LOR user,
Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).
Reviewing cause and effect concepts in the Jefferson Era
Reviewing cause and effect concepts in the Jefferson Era using Padlet
1 - 2 days
8 – U4.1.2 Establishing America’s Place in the World – Explain the changes in America’s relationships with other nations by analyzing treaties with American Indian nations, Jay’s Treaty (1795), French Revolution, Pinckney’s Treaty (1795), Louisiana Purchase, War of 1812, Transcontinental Treaty (1819), and the Monroe Doctrine. (C4)
8 – U4.1.3 Challenge of Political Conflict – Explain how political parties emerged out of the competing ideas, experiences, and fears of Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton (and their followers), despite the worries the Founders had concerning the dangers of political division, by analyzing disagreements over • relative power of the national government (e.g., Whiskey Rebellion, Alien and Sedition Acts) and of the executive branch (e.g., during the Jacksonian era) (C3) (National Geography Standard 13, p. 169) • foreign relations (e.g., French Revolution, relations with Great Britain) (C3) (National Geography Standard 13, p. 169) • economic policy (e.g., the creation of a national bank, assumption of revolutionary debt) (C3, E2.2)

Review Causes (Events) of the Jefferson Era
Using Padlet, have students respond to the essential question,
“What are some Cause & Effect relationships during Jefferson's and Madison's presidencies?”
Have students identify other effects from the Padlet responses of other students
Have students identify Padlet responses that are incorrect
Debrief/Discuss correct and incorrect Padlet responses
Remind students that Causes have more than one Effect
Formative via Padlet and discussion
Use Kahoot to review Cause and Effect relationships during the Jefferson Era
Have students take a summative test on the Jefferson Era
What was your experience, both successes and challenges, using this lesson object with your students?
The students offered a lot of cool responses… this led to a lot of discussion. This lesson took longer because of the number of student questions and comments.
In the future, more question prompts could be used, but it might work against scaffolding the lesson, and it would need to span over more than one day.
I like the way this lesson allows for a safe opportunity for student responses.
