Students compare aspects of daily life from the mid-19th century with those of today to contrast life then and now. They study newspaper advertisements for housing and clothing from then and now and create and illustrate their own apartment and clothing ads for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
