New Product Alert!! This is our 15 page packet to introduce our new discussion topic for the 2017-2018 school year; Social Media. We found the topic using procon.org and have decided to utilize a similar format from our previous topic of Tablets vs. Textbooks. That topic was so successful we decided to make a similar packet with a new topic and some new activities to go with the new topic. The target is still the same; oral language, written language, and receptive language.
We have students orally discuss the topic. Then we have them engage in a listening activity that requires them to watch a video and take notes. They are then required to read through some of the statistics/facts related to social media. In this packet we have included an emphasis on both Tier 1 and Tier 2 vocabulary terms. We then included an opportunity for the students to paraphrase the statistics/facts which was something we included in our previous packet and received positive feedback and wanted to include it in this packet.
We have also included a Lesson Plan to go along with this Packet. The Lesson Plan breaks down the packet into mini lessons, group work, guided practice and independent work. The Lesson Plan is intended to give you step by step directions as to how you can present this packet to your students.
This packet now connects to the new Packets 2 and 3 that can be found in our store. all of the packets relate to the common topic of Social Media and build upon each other to eventually have the students write their very own 5 paragraph Argumentative Essay.
Group work is provided within this packet along with independent work. Watch for following packets that target more of the writing of an argumentative essay like our previous Tablets vs. Textbook Bundle Included.
Common Core Packets Bundle Tablets versus Textbooks
We really value the importance of oral language at the High School Level as we feel that is the primary skill for them to achieve in order to be more successful with written and receptive language.
Again, this packet will target many of the Commonn Core Language Skills that are required for students at the Middle School and High School Level
