6 Tracing the Anchor Standards  On a piece of chart paper, visually represent how the standard changes from grades 6 to 12  Brainstorm some activities that would meet the standard AND encourage students to use civic engagement skills

7 Gallery Walk/Share-Out  As you visit each poster, write comments, questions, or ideas on post-its and stick them on!  After we have rotated, one member of the original group will sum up what was said.
