    Doing What Works

This PowerPoint outlines a seventh-grade social studies lesson that scaffolds text discussion strategies to help students develop an understanding of the experiences of Chernobyl survivors. The lesson plan includes student guidelines for engaging in partner and small group discussions. The lesson concludes with class presentations, a question-and-answer period, and individual student reflections. An example of student work is also included here.
