  • The students will describe the conflict of the story in their own words.

Summary

The teacher will have a discussion about the term conflict. After talking about this with the students the teacher will then read the story, "Three Billy Goats Gruff". After reading the out loud to the class the teacher will then ask the students what the conflict was that the characters faced in the story. Then the students will transition to the computer lab, where the students will pair up with a partner and get a computer with internet access. The students will then go to http://goodnightstories.com/finish.htm and chose a story that is found on the website. After they choose a story the students will type in their own ending to the stories (each student is required to type 1 paragraph). Then have the students share with the class their endings to the stories and what conflict they found in their stories.

Evaluation Plan

The teacher can evaluate the ending of the student's story by using a rubric. The students can give a presentation and compare their conflicts that they found with other students who read the same story. This will allow the teacher to hear the conflicts that the students found and listen to how they describe it to their classmates.

Justificatin for technology

By using this website it allows students to work together and write their own ending to a story. The students also get a chance to see a conflict in a story and make up their own ending on how the conflict may be resolved. It is a great assignment to have the children use to express their own ideas and believes about a story.
