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.
Text: Give Me Liberty Chapters 31-32
Length: 2 days
This lesson is an outgrowth of the fully developed lesson plan #2 for chapters 9-12. That lesson can be modified to fit the demands of these chapters. This time students should be able to work more independently with the content than for chapters 9-12
A consideration is vocabulary within the song lyrics. To fully comprehend its intent, students should understand the following: has gone for a soldier, heed, cry my fill, and tear should turn a mill.
Another consideration in teacher prep is that the lyrics of the song and the content of the two chapters are an ironic joining.
