This language Mini-Unit is focused on critical topics including: Personal Aspirations and Student Agency. This power point walks you through a learning progression that begins with an analysis of Voice in both Writing and Oral expression. Technology is integrated into this program such that students can analyze real world models, share their ideas in real time and then offer feedback on the ideas of others.
Students are then provided with an experience focused on exploring how Word Choice contributes to the development of a Powerful Voice when communicating critical main ideas. Students will then be challenged to share their understandings of powerful language by creating interesting medias.
Creative medias serve as a pathway to critical paragraph writing with a focus on analyzing point of view.
The Learning Journey continues with student opportunities to develop Meme Stories and Procedures for "How to Aspire."
This file contains: Student Models, Success Criteria, Teachers notes (suggestions), Links to available technologies to enhance student demonstrations of learning.
A graphic organizer for the Procedural media will be added to my shop.
Please feel free to share your feedback! Be Great!
