Tomorrow I will try a different approach in one of my history classes on Great Britain and India.
Homework: Watch the first 28 min. of this video and prepare 3 questions for quiz and swap in class.
1) 15 minutes of quiz- and-swap : Students quiz one another with their questions in pairs, then swap questions and move on to another classmate.
2) Reflection in class: Questions to documentary’s content.
3) Students team up in pairs and frame a research question on India as part of the British Empire.
4) Students answer their questions by finding proper source material – and will present their work to the pair next to them.
