Objective 1 (Explaining & Understanding): Students will review the definitions of bias and point of view. Students will be taught how to determine bias and point of view (word choice).
Summary of Lesson 1: Class will begin with students listening to the song “In the Living Years” and be asked to underline words that make them feel something. I will use this as my hook into our unit. Students will be given a brief overview of the unit and then we will move into the demonstration portion of class. A Brainpop.com video will be shown that reviews point of view. As a diagnostic I will use the post test as a pre test and have the students track their scores before and after the video. Following the video and post- test I will have a brief Q & A that reviews that definition and understanding of bias. As a class we will read 2 different short stories and analyze bias and point of view in each of these. The teacher will indicate how certain words or word choice can indicate bias in order to model for the class. The first story will be more teacher led while the second the teacher will work with the students (scaffolding) until they are able to work through the text. As an independent activity students will be asked to complete a short worksheet that reviews bias and point of view based on the website www.martinlutherking.org.that will be posted on my P-board.
Assessment: I will informally monitor answers during the discussions that follow the short stories. I will also review the diagnostic tests to see if there are any major issues. The website worksheet will be collected and feedback will be given.
Objective 2 (Interpretation and Application): Students will practice recognizing different parts of view...

- From taking minutes we learnt that it was important to keep track of what we were doing each lesson as it is easy to lose track. The planning process can then be recounted and referred back to with ease. Being able to refer to the minutes was good as it was easy to check that everyone done what they had to. It also made the assignment easier to reflect on and assessed as it shows a timeline of the assignment process. Finally it also provides evidence that my capabilities were built upon gradually throughout the assignment.... [tags: Teacher, Lesson plan, Lesson, Teaching]

- Learning Theories and Instructional Strategies The lessons contained in this unit of instruction were based upon Madeline Hunter’s Seven Steps of Lesson Plan Formatting. This lesson plan format is a proven effective means for delivering instruction. When designing lessons, the teacher needs to consider these seven elements in a certain order since each element is derived from and has a relationship to previous elements. It should be noted that a lesson plan does not equal one class period. Throughout the course of the lesson, it may take multiple sessions before the student is ready to independently practice the skills learned.... [tags: Learning Strategies, Instructional Unit]
