Lesson seeds are ideas for the standards that can be used to build a lesson.  Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they substitutes for instruction.  This lesson seed provides a compelling question and a bank of sources to use to drive an inquiry based lesson or a potential Evidence Based Argument Set (EBAS).  When developing lessons from these seeds, teachers must consider the needs of all learners.  Once you have built your lesson from the lesson seed, teachers are encouraged to post the lesson that has emerged from this lesson seed and share with others. Compelling Question: Is gerrymandering inconsistent with our representative democracy?EL Modifications: identify key vocabulary and add images to improve comprehension; consider adapting content, process and/or product based on Can Do WIDA Descriptors Image source: "Election" by OpenClipart-Vectors on Pixabay.com
