Lynbrook North Middle School eighth-graders in Neil Farina and Christopher Balas’ American History class journeyed back in time to the Reconstruction Era during class on Sept. 25. The class participated in a carousel lesson where students collaborated as a group and traveled to four stations, writing facts about the time period for their upcoming exam. Stations included “Early Reconstruction,” “Radicals Take Over,” “The South Reigns Control” and “Life in the New South.”
The interactive lesson allowed each group to conduct research using their tablets and then use a different color dry erase marker to display their answers at each station. The class then gathered back together as a class to review the facts. Mr. Farina and Mr. Balas helped the students by reinforcing the concepts as the eighth-graders used their tablets to take notes.
