The Civil Rights chartwheel has proven to be an excellent tool. I used it in conjunction with an assessment I do on Civil Rights legislation. The back of the chartwheel helped the students determine which Civil Rights act was violated in various scenarios acted out by students in small groups. Presently, I am using the American Presidents chartwheel as we review for our AP exam next week. I have the samples up on my whiteboard with magnetic clips. Few kids have been able to resist investigating this new tool, and many have offered suggestions as to how we can use them.
