Lunchroom Fight II OR
How to "fix" what's wrong with history.
LUNCHROOM FIGHT II From The Stanford History Education Group
"This lesson builds on our popular Lunchroom Fight activity. While the first Lunchroom Fight focuses specifically on sourcing, this lesson requires students to evaluate evidence by sourcing, contextualizing, and corroborating different eyewitness accounts. This lesson introduces historical thinking skills through engaging students to build a case for who started a fight in the lunchroom."
