Lesson Summary : Character Map
In this lesson students will read Chapter 1 and answer the focus questions: "How do the traits of each character affect their relationships?", "How are the main characters introduced and how are they related?" Students will use images from Google Slide and add traits of each character including possible background information such as appearance, relatives, etc. after reading Chapter 1. Then, each group will present their own slide to class. While they are presenting, the rest of the students can add any extra information from the presentation on their Character Map. This activity will help them answer text-dependent questions and understand the characters' relationships. In addition, students can build their inferences on how some characters can take a stand for others or not.
Lesson Summary : Group Project - 'Taking a Stand' Flyer
In this lesson, students will create an online flyer about taking a stand for inequality using Smore. The teacher will first demonstrate how to add various contents such as images, news articles, videos, music and so on. Before this lesson the teacher has handed out a list of topics representing inequality for students to make a selection, and examples of the possible images related to the themes that can be used for each group’s flyer. Groups of students have assigned to each person what kind of information is to be collected regarding their topic, and already have done some research on it. During this project, students will be encouraged to participate actively and to scaffold what they have learned in class by researching inequality on their own. If time allows, each group will present their flyer to the class and explain why its contents support their claim.
