Discussion for Goal Directed Lesson Plan: Walt Whitman's "The Year of Meteors"
Dilys Gibbs-Harrison (Teacher (K-12))
What a pleasure it must be to work with Seniors. I always feel like Seniors are more mature to handle the literacy research. The students are very fortunate to have such a well thought out lesson plan. I like how you present/introduce the material to them through a Youtube clip.You increase their presentations to be successful by supplying a research graphic organizer and the vocabulary words that they should incorporate into their lesson. Their personal blogs allow freedom to expresss their real feelings about the project. The collaboration of group members will promote critical thinking. The idea of presenting Walt Whitman as one of their own is very creative. I like how you have divided the poem equally between the groups.
The iPad is a great incentive and a great tool for the students to use. Students create blogs and Webquests.
