  1. 1. Touro University, Gibbs Technology Integration Unit Launch Page Teacher Name: This could be you Project Title: Self-Image and the Media Project Subject(s): Language Arts, Media Literacy Grade Level(s): 7 Goals & Objectives: Students will be able to: • recognize different types of evidence • draw out the main idea and important details from an article • summarize an article • correctly cite references • recognize the influence media plays in influencing a person’s self-image and feelings of self-worth Essential Question: In what ways does the media affect a person’s self-image? Scaffolding Questions: What types of evidence are used to present information in non- fiction writing? What is an effective way to take notes from an article?

Approximate Length of Unit (days, weeks) 12 – 14 days Unit Summary and Sequence of Events, Timelines – give details: Summary: Students will learn to differentiate between facts and opinions in advertising.

They will identify the main idea of the article, the types of evidence used in the article, and the important details given in the article. They will share this information with their classmates through a PowerPoint presentation. Day 1: Classroom – Students will view a PP presentation and take notes on types of evidence: anecdote, fact, statistic, example, and expert opinion. They will read an article from their textbooks and learn how to chunk the text, find the main idea of each chunk, and label the type of evidence being used. They will keep notes on binder paper and use the notes to write a summary of the article. Days 2 & 3: Classroom – Students will be assigned a partner and an article to read about self-image and media. They will use the chunking/note-taking strategy for their article and write a summary. Days 4: Classroom – Students will be shown a student prototype of a PP presentation. They will plan out their own presentation of a storyboard sheet. Days 5, 6, & 7: Computer Lab – Students will work together to create a PP presentation about the important details and evidence from their article to present to the class. Days 8: Classroom – Students will rehearse their presentations. Days 9 & 10: Classroom – Students will make class presentations and the rest of the class will take notes. Day 11: Classroom - Students will write a reflective piece about what they learned from the unit.
  2. 2. Touro University, Gibbs (Optional) Day 12: Computer Lab - Students will use to create a poster that sends positive messages to teens about how to live a healthy, confident lifestyle and overcome negative messages in the media. Software and Hardware needed: -computers with internet connection -Powerpoint or Google presentation software Accommodations for Differentiated Instruction Learning Challenged Students will be paired according to ability. Teacher will Student: provide articles of varying degrees of difficulty depending Gifted Student: on the needs and abilities of individual learners. ELD Student: Students will be partnered with students with academic English proficiency.
