  • I liked the Language Arts Toolbox. It was brief, to the point, and will hold the attention of middle school boys. It makes connections to tools they use.

Language Arts Toolbox Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Language Arts Toolbox
  • 2. Attention
    • Attention is your wrench. You can make adjustments using this tool. Ask yourself:
      • Am I focused?
      • Am I getting enough sleep?
      • Can I sort what’s important from lesser details?
      • Am I linking information to other experiences?
      • Am I making predictions?
      • Am I working at an appropriate pace?
      • Am I making changes when things aren’t working?
  • 3. Memory
    • Memory is your screwdriver. You can use this tool to connect or fasten together different aspects of your learning. Ask yourself:
      • Can I paraphrase or summarize information into my own words so I can remember it?
      • Can I balance immediate objectives with long-term goals?
      • Can I link related items together to help me remember?
      • Can I categorize items together so I can remember?
      • Can I recognize patterns?
  • 4. Higher Order Thinking
    • Higher Order Thinking is your fastener. You can make connections with this tool. Ask yourself:
      • Am I evaluating?
      • Am I brainstorming?
      • Am I using steps or systems to solve problems?
      • Do I learn and apply rules (i.e. grammar, mechanics)?
      • Am I coming up with thoughtful answers?
  • 5. Language
    • Language is the material out of which we construct English. Ask yourself:
      • Do I learn and understand the meanings of words and use them properly?
      • Do I understand sentences and sentence structures and formulate good sentences when I speak and write?
      • Can I paraphrase and summarize what I read?
      • Is my writing organized?
      • Do I expand and develop ideas when speaking and writing?
      • Do I follow the rules of standard English?
