After reading an anecdote on Grace Coolidge's love of baseball, the Red Sox, and accordingly, her knowledge of the Curse of the Bambino, young scholars research and discuss other superstitions. The final project is a children's book about a superstition that students researched. A lesson extension allows young scholars to share personal and family superstitions as a class.

Lesson Planet has helped me to find lessons based on proven teaching strategies. I can then tailor them to my class - even though I teach adults who are working on their GED.
