Lesson Plan: Katie's Trunk, Cause and Effect

  1. 1. v2Author: Joel Nauton  02/22/2009 10:06:00 AM PSTright0<br />VITAL INFORMATIONSubject(s): Language Arts (English) Topic or Unit of Study: Katie's Trunk: Cause and Effect Grade Level: 5 Standards: CA- California K-12 Academic Content Standards• Subject : English Language Arts• Grade : Grade Five• Area : Reading• Sub-Strand 2.0: Reading Comprehension (Focus on Informational Materials)Students read and understand grade-level-appropriate material. They describe and connect the essential ideas, arguments, and perspectives of the text by using their knowl-edge of text structure, organization, and purpose. The selections in Recommended Readings in Literature, Kindergarten Through Grade Eight illustrate the quality and complexity of the materials to be read by students. In addition, by grade eight, students read one million words annually on their own, including a good representation of grade-level-appropriate narrative and expository text (e.g., classic and contemporary literature, magazines, newspapers, online information). In grade five, students make progress toward this goal.• Concept : Structural Features of Informational Materials Standard 2.1: Understand how text features (e.g., format, graphics, sequence, diagrams, illustrations, charts, maps) make information accessible and usable.• Concept : Comprehension and Analysis of Grade-Level-Appropriate Text Standard 2.4: Draw inferences, conclusions, or generalizations about text and support them with textual evidence and prior knowledge.• Concept : Expository Critique Standard 2.5: Distinguish facts, supported inferences, and opinions in text.• Area : Listening and Speaking• Sub-Strand 1.0: Listening and Speaking StrategiesStudents deliver focused, coherent presentations that convey ideas clearly and relate to the background and interests of the audience. They evaluate the content of oral communication.• Concept : Comprehension Standard 1.1: Ask questions that seek information not already discussed.• Sub-Strand 2.0: Speaking Applications (Genres and Their Characteristics)Students deliver well-organized formal presentations employing traditional rhetorical strategies (e.g., narration, exposition, persuasion, description). Student speaking demon-strates a command of standard American English and the organizational and delivery strategies outlined in Listening and Speaking Standard 1.0.• Concept : Using the speaking strategies of grade five outlined in Listening and Speaking Standard 1.0, students: Standard 2.3: Deliver informative presentations about an important idea, issue, or event by the follow-ing means: a. Frame questions to direct the investigation. b. Establish a controlling idea or topic. c. Develop the topic with simple facts, details, examples, and explanations.• Subject : History & Social Science• Grade : Grade Five• Area : United States History and Geography: Making a New NationStudents in grade five study the development of the nation up to 1850, with an emphasis on the people who were already here, when and from where others arrived, and why they came. Students learn about the colonial government founded on Judeo-Christian principles, the ideals of the Enlightenment, and the English traditions of self-government. They recognize that ours is a nation that has a constitution that derives its power from the people, that has gone through a revolution, that once sanctioned slavery, that experienced conflict over land with the original inhabitants, and that experienced a westward movement that took its people across the continent. Studying the cause, course, and consequences of the early explorations through the War for Independence and western expansion is central to students’ fundamental understanding of how the principles of the American republic form the basis of a pluralistic society in which individual rights are secured.• Sub-Strand 5.6: Students understand the course and consequences of the American Revolution. Standard 4: Understand the personal impact and economic hardship of the war on families, problems of financing the war, wartime inflation, and laws against hoarding goods and materials and profiteering. Lesson Summary:   Lesson Objectives:   Time Allotment and context:   IMPLEMENTATIONInstructional Format/ Model:   Student Grouping:   Differentiated Instruction:   MATERIALS AND RESOURCESMaterials/Resources:   Technology/ Web Resources:   ASSESSMENTSAssessment/Rubrics:   Sample Student Products:   Author's Comments & Reflections:   <br />
