Using videos to show cause and effect relationships Presentation Transcript

  • 1. USING VIDEOS TO SHOW CAUSE AND EFFECT RELATIONSHIPS By Kristin Davis and Kelsey Reese
  • 2. WHY TEACH CAUSE AND EFFECT RELATIONSHIPS?
    • This unit is intended for 2 nd grade students, including students with Early Intermediate and Intermediate English language proficiency
    • I chose the theme of cause and effect relationships because it is a 2 nd grade reading standard. The standard is listed as Literary Text: Develop an Interpretation- Describe cause-and-effect of specific events (EL.02.LI.06)
    • I also chose this theme because it is something that students have some background knowledge about because of being in cause and effect situations themselves. It is an important concept for students to understand because it is something that they will experience throughout their lives
  • 3. TUMBLEBOOKS RESOURCES
    • Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorist
    • The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate the Wash by Steven Kellogg
    • The Berenstain Bears and the Truth by Jan and Stan Berenstain
    • If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff
    • Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens
    • Students will view these texts and more on TumbleBooks in order to understand the cause and effect relationships.
  • 4. STRATEGIES USED THROUGHOUT UNIT TO HELP ELL STUDENTS
    • Visuals (YouTube video of skateboarders, TumbleBooks, and student generated YouTube videos)
    • Sentence Frames (help students express their understanding of a cause and effect relationship and practice using the language)
    • Think Aloud (teacher helps model cause and effect relationships in read alouds)
    • Think-Pair-Share (students will share ideas with each and model language as they share)
  • 5. CONCEPTS TO BE UNDERSTOOD BY STUDENTS
    • The first concept that I want students to understand is what a cause is and what an effect is
    • The second concept that I want students to understand is what a cause and effect situation/relationship is
    Cause Effect
  • 6. SENTENCE FRAMES TO BE USED THROUGHOUT UNIT
    • Cause  Effect
      • ________, so ________.
      • When ________, then ________.
      • Since _______, _________.
    • Effect  Cause
      • ________ because ________.
  • 7. LESSON #1
    • Ask students to share if they know what ‘cause’ or ‘effect’ mean (maybe Think-Pair-Share)
    • Share with students the meaning of words
    • Show students baggie with egg inside
    • Drop egg and ask students what happened (students answer) and ask them why that happened (students answer)
    • Draw a picture of the cause and effect on the poster and fill in sentence frames with student’s responses
    • Show students YouTube video of skateboard bloopers
    • Discuss what caused the skateboarder to stay on or fall off of his skateboard
  • 8. LESSON #2
    • Review skateboard video and the meaning of cause and effect
    • Introduce sentence frames
    • Have students practice with a partner describing cause and effect relationships in the video using sentence frames
    • Share and discuss students observations
  • 9. LESSON #3
    • Review meaning of ‘cause’ and ‘effect’
    • Show Life and Death of Ice Cream YouTube video
    • Students will generate a list of possible causes for why the ice cream melts
    • Students will Think-Pair-Share the cause and effect relationships from the video and the list using the sentence frames
    • Students will write their five favorite causes for why ice cream would melt using the sentence frames as needed
  • 10. LESSON #4
    • Review the meaning of ‘cause’ and ‘effect’
    • Review cause and effect situations that we have discussed (in stories and in real-life) from previous lessons
    • We are assuming students have access to Flip videos and know how to use them appropriately
    • Working in groups of four, students will choose one cause for melting ice cream and record a video of the process while voicing the cause and effect relationship using a sentence frame
  • 11. LESSON #5
    • Students will upload their videos to YouTube with a link on the classroom blog and write an explanation of their video describing the cause and effect relationship using the sentence frames
    • Students will present their videos to the class
    •   Home-School Connection: Students will share their video with their family and respond to each other’s videos on the blog
  • 12. CLASSROOM BLOG
    • At the beginning of the year, there will be a screencast posted on the classroom blog that shows parents and students how to navigate and use this essential classroom tool
    • Parents will be able to view their child’s work and have up-to-date information about what their students are studying and what is going on at school
