(One of my UCCS students during her spring project where she studied  gender roles in the Boston area and how advertising might affect that.)

The Do Now is a short assignment to keep the students quiet and get them ready to think about the lesson of the day. I generally make it a critical thinking assignment. We discuss the topic every day, but rarely do I collect it. I ask the students to keep them and if the have each one from the semester at the close of the semester I give them extra credit on an end of semester test or project.

The agenda below as well as the Do Now is from a Macbeth unit I did when teaching English with the seventh grade.
