I spent the last few days working on the curriculum for my enrichment class. This year each teacher will teach a 30 minute enrichment period on a topic they are passionate about. I love the idea and am thrilled to delve deeper into the monarchs with my classes! I will teach the class 4 times, to a different class each marking period.
I decided to focus a lot on the area of Mexico where the Monarchs migrate. That means looking at the Aztecs and Mayans, modern-day Michoacan, and the monarch’s effects on the culture. I’ve come up with a rough outline of the class, seen below.
