Teach This! Teaching with lesson plans and ideas that rock #teaching 04/22/2012
This is a fascinating lesson and student opinion question about teenagers with ADHD and their driving. I think this is one that all drivers ed teachers should read but also that should be part of discussions with students of driving age. (You could combine with a mock trial idea.)
IN this lesson plan from the New York Times, learn how to prepare a mock trial for your classroom. You can prepare one around just about any topic. This would be an excellent way to end the school year to add enthusiasm.
A great question developed from an award winning website. You can integrate this into what you may have already been doing around the Titanic. This is a "court case" and can be used to teach about the judicial process and hold a mock trial. I love this idea.
