Roman Tables Activity
Lesson Plan REFLECTION
During this lesson the entire class was active and energetic. The class activity involved the role-play strategy of teaching along with questioning. The activity worked well because it kept the students active and questioning, looking for answers and seeking knowledge that they did not have prior to the lesson. The role play strategy was successful in that it kept the students interested and involved in the class discussion and learning of the ‘Roman Tables (Roman Laws).

As for assessments, all students completed an ‘Exit Slip’ to show that they understood the basis of the ‘Roman Tables.’ The results of the ‘Exit Slip’ were to gauge if students were as fully involved as they seemed to be from the discussion. The ‘Exit...
