Help me give my students the materials that will provide them opportunity for effective guided instruction. The headphones will allow students to focus on the computerize assignments without getting distracted.
I teach in a high poverty neighborhood, and most of my students are reading two or three grades below grade level. In order to bridge the gap, I focus on small groups instruction, and close reading. My students present with many different learning and emotional challenges, and need extra support. Many of my students are creative and eager to learn. However, they find it challenging and are often frustrated with not being able to communicate effectively. I teach three sections per day, and I differentiate my lesson according to my students needs.
I also use language arts computer programs to help my students improve their comprehension and other skills.
My students work best when they are in small groups, where they can get extra support as they try to understand differences and work together as a team.
These materials will allow my students to be focused on what they need to do. The headphones will allow students to enjoy listening to stories or articles without distracting other students in the classroom. I will use the easel and chart paper for Anchor Charts that will help students to have a visual, since many of my students are visual learners.
One lesson that I will teach my students is to Analyze how events in a story drives the plot towards a resolution.
Students will listen /watch A Pixar movie and answer questions. They will use the information from the story to complete a Plot Diagram.
