Shelby Bollner Day Two 6/4/13AThe students in my class will be completing a week long unit plan about the five literaryelements which are character, plot, setting, style, and theme. It is a 3rdgrade class and is abouteven in the ratio of boys to girls at 12 boys and 10 girls. Culture wise, the students are similar asthe school is not located in a very culturally diverse area though some have Hispanic roots. All ofthe class speaks English, though for some it was not their first language, which makes the modeof communication much easier. The class doesn’t vary in age, so each should be taught on thesame level, with the exception of a few that lag behind.SStudents will describe what the literary elements are with a focus on the literary element of plotand why they are significant by having a review of the class literary element poster, and a read-aloud of a book pertaining to the literary element of plot. The students will complete a post-reading activity about plot by writing out five different things that happened in the sequence ofthe plot during the read-aloud. Students will then watch a YouTube video about how to conducta read-aloud, which will pertain to the homework assignment of posting to the FaceBook classpage “MissBollners3rdgradeclass” what book they will do a read-aloud on about plot. Thestudents will Students will be able to describe the literary element of character with 100%accuracy by the end of the unit.SThere will be a couple different methods being used. First, the short review will be going on asstudents sit at their desks and simply listen and can participate in review of the class elementposter. The second method will be listening to the read-aloud of the book “There Was an OldLady Who Swallowed a Fly” which demonstrates a building plot. Activities following this willbe students getting into groups where they will receive of a piece of paper and collaborate onfive things that happened in order during the sequence of the read-aloud. Lastly, the students willbe asked to return to their seats where they will be told that they will be preforming a read-aloud
in front of class about plot and that they will get to choose a story of their own preference. Thestudents will then watch the teacher-made YouTube video about how to conduct a read-aloud forthe class. This video will be on the FaceBook class page “MissBollners3rdgradeclass” where thestudents can go home to rewatch if necessary and they will post the book they want to do on thepage. The media used for this class will be a combination of audio, visual (as in computers andmultimedia), still images (the poster), text, and Elmo use because of the class poster review, theread-aloud, the YouTube video about how to conduct a read-aloud, and the homework FaceBookassignment. The materials used will be the poster made by the teacher, the video made by theteacher, and the text purchased by the teacher.UThe audio and visual media used will be the review of the class literary element poster andtheYouTube video about how to conduct a read-aloud being played from the class YouTubechannel while the students are at their desks. So there will need to be an already correctly set upthe computer so that the YouTube video is up and has been tested and made sure it works withthe internet connection and that it will come up smoothly and play without glitches. There willalso be will be a need to make sure that the class literary poster is in a visible place in theclassroom where all students can see it. For the read-aloud, I will need to make sure that theElmo is set up so that the book can be viewed from the front of the classroom so no students willhave to strain to see. I will have already practiced this read-aloud many times to assure that I willgo through it smoothly and that I already know what I want to say and mention about the literaryelement of plot. The paper for the post reading activity will be supplied by me and the studentswill have an allotted time to finish this posting reading activity. To ensure this group activitygoes smoothly I will have already selected which students will be in what group and will havemoved the desks accordingly. Lastly, the students will need to post what book they will choosefor their read-aloud to the class FaceBook page “MissBollners3rdgradeclass” and I will makesure that each student has their FaceBook account that has been previously made for otherhomework assignments before this unit.RThe learner participation in this class will have to be great. The students will often be in classdiscussions and in groups, like when going over the literary element class poster when there willbe opportunity to discuss each element and have students ask questions and when students willbe divided into groups for the post-reading activity. The FaceBook homework assignment also
requires learner participation with them posting actively on FaceBook. So the students will havemany opportunities to discuss what they think about the activities, what they felt about theactivities, if they liked them.EFor evaluating my lesson plan, I will take what the students liked best and what they didn’t enjoyabout the lesson. I will evaluate how much the students knew about the literary element ofcharacter after the lesson and see how much they retained. I will consider what went smoothlyand what parts of the lesson need to be practiced and worked on to make sure there are lessinterruptions and to make sure each activity flows from one to the other. I will also consider whatother technologies I implement into this lesson plan.
