This two-day lesson plan will introduce High School students to the poetry of Walt Whitman, and the associated ideas of realism and transcendentalism. This lesson plan utilizes a variety of educational technology tools, including an in-class presentation system (projector, internet-enabled computer) and a set of iPads (or other internet-enabled computer or mobile device.)
In this lesson, students will collaborate together to research the historical relevence of Whitman's poem, The Year of Meteors. In small groups, students will present the results of their research so the class will understand the historical meanings represented in Whitman's poetic verse.
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.
