LASF.2.SL.2.5: Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas: Standard for Speaking and Listening


The objectives for this lesson will cover ELA, Social Studies, History, Research, Drama and Writing and will continue throughout the months of February and possibly May, as we enter January with national race relations, ML King Holiday, and February designated as "Black HIstory 'Month" as well as world traditions and celebrations. This introductory lesson is created to aid students understanding when comparing and contrasting events with similar characters and experiences. The scholars are second grade; therefore viewing the movie is chosen for grade level and ELL parents as well as scholars. The series will include activities, games and graphic organizers and diagrams to engage all scholars. Students also learn unfamiliar words, practice retelling and locating Key details to identify the main Idea of sections and entire texts. This webquest will assist in using technology to enhance skills in this ever-growing and changing virtual learning society and excitement while providing challenging opportunities for learning and life skills


Scholars will be familiarized with author's and writers presentation and be able to see how a book and movie parallels. I will introduce the tasks by pointing out to notice the parts of a story such as plot, setting, characters, problem and solution will parallel with the written texts we have discussed previously but not discuss or provide opinions concerning the two movies. We will also show that both movies are based on actual events and are also books.
