Unit Plan PowerPoint

  1. 1. Unit Plan: The 5Elements of a StoryBy: Shelby Bollner
  2. 2. The Learner and the ObjectiveO My class is a 3rd grade class of 22students, 12 boys and 10 girls.O The class is broken down by 55 minutes foreach subject a day.O The objective of my 5 day unit plan is to teachmy students the basics of the 5 elements to astory which arecharacter, plot, setting, style, and theme.
  3. 3. Day One: CharacterO I will begin by showing the students the short YouTubestory-telling video about all five of the literary elements andthen explain that today’s focus will be about the element ofcharacter.O I would then go over the class literary poster and talk abouthow each picture pertains to each element. This would bethe time for class discussion and questions on theelements.O I would then read the “Olivia” book aloud to the studentsand to keep them engaged I would stop periodically and askthem questions about the text that pertain to character.O After the read-aloud I would put the children into groupsand have them do a post-reading activity pertaining tocharacterization and then have them present.(Good Reads)
  4. 4. Day Two: PlotO I would start the day by reviewing the class literary elementposter.O Then I would read “There Was an Old Lady WhoSwallowed a Fly” and I would use this book to demonstrateplot because it has a building plot.O The students will be grouped together to do a post-readingactivity where they will write five things that happened in theplot.O The students then will watch a video made by me thatinstructs them how to preform a read-aloud.O Their homework assignment will be to pick a book wherethey will gear the read-aloud towards plot. They will have topostthe book they picked on the class Facebook page for theirhomework assignment as well(Caldecott Medal)
  5. 5. Day Three: SettingO I would start of class with a review of the classliterary element poster.O Then I would do a read-aloud of a historical fictionbook, like Ox-Cart Man, for this lesson todemonstrate that setting is both where AND whenthe story is occurring.O After the read-aloud we would have a classdiscussion about the book and how setting wasimportant.O Then each student would get a computer from theclass set and go to the class FaceBook page andlisten to a podcast made by myself. They wouldcomplete the activity within the podcast.
  6. 6. Day Four: StyleO I would start of the day with a review oftheclass poster of the five literary elements.O I would read the book “Arrow to the Sun”to demonstrate author’s style.O After reading the book and pointing outthe any style techniques, I would have thechildren discuss the different uses of style.O Then I would have each child get acomputer and go to andcomplete the WebQuest individual andgroup activity
  7. 7. Day Five: ThemeO For the last day in the unit plan I wouldstart of, of course, with a review of theclass poster.O I would read the book “Knuffle Bunny:A Cautionary Tale” that has a cleartheme but also incorporates all otherelements very clearly into the storyaswell to tie the unit plan altogether.O Then I would have the students eachget a computer and go to the classpage on FaceBook where they willthen go to Blogger and complete theactivity listed within the blog I createdfor them.(Silvey, 2013)
  8. 8. Use of TechnologyO I would be using a lot of technology forthis unit plan.O I would be using the ELMO to display thestory better for all students to see duringthe read-alouds, FaceBook, Twitter, DigitalImaging, Posters, YouTube Videos, Story-Telling Videos, and Podcasts.O All of this technology would be used in avariety of ways throughout the week.
