About This Lesson

I created short summaries for four early Chinese dynasties. The students were divided into groups and instead of assigning each group a dynasty, I had the students treat each document as a piece of evidence. They had to code the text identifying the economic, political and social conditions that existed in each dynasty. The groups have a time limit with each document. I wrote on the board that they were taking on the role of historians. I incorporated at least one aspect of the Common Core Standards into every lesson.
If you would like more clarification on this activity please inform me.

An example of how to code the text would be helpful for those who are not familiar with this reading strategy.
