So, I have one 50 minute block where I essentially can teach whatever I want to 8th graders (9 week class). This is also supposed to be a more relaxed class for the students....I'm a history teacher so, I chose to teach about conspiracy theories. But I am struggling coming up with enough material to teach each day. My initial plan was this - Cover a new conspiracy theory each week... Monday - Present brief information on historical event, then present conspiracy theory Tuesday- cover conspiracy theory in full, watch a video, take some note, read articles, research... Wednesday- Research/ Notes on what the mainstream media says Thursday- play devils advocate on the theory vs. what main stream media said happened... Friday - Students write their opinion and turn in their stance on if they believe the theory or not, using facts and notes from videos and lecture I am struggling to find resources and just with the concept in general. I love conspiracy theories but I'm not sure my plan is strong/ well thought out. Should I jump ship and teach something like leadership?
