Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they
substitutes for instruction. When developing lessons from these seeds, teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the
lessons where appropriate formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.
Lesson Seed 8 - Day 21-25
Select one resource from each of the week's lessons.
Revisit the essential question and the focus questions from previous weeks. Engage students in a collaborative discussion to decide how each type of text we read demonstrated how the author and/or illustrator helped the reader understand different points of view. Pair or group students based on the text they selected from each week in the unit. Have the students work in the small groups to complete the pre-writing notes page. Note: The teacher should have all texts available for student review during this time. The teacher will need to monitor each grouping to ensure that the students are working collaboratively to answer the prewriting notes accurately. The teacher will model how to complete the prewriting notes before the students are to work in groups.
After the students complete the prewriting notes page have students create a digital product that answers the essential question (work independently, in pairs or small groups teacher discretion). Some examples of digital tools the teacher may have the students select from are: a PowerPoint presentation (using Windows), a StoryKit ebook (using StoryKit app for iPod/iPads), Educreations or ShowMe presentation (using app for iPod/iPad) or Paper Slide Video of a presentation (using Flip Cam, iPod/iPad). The students should incorporate the use of pictures, text and audio in their digital report.
Students display their drafts for peer and teacher feedback and publish final product based on feedback revisions and edits.
Students present their reports to the class.
