Product Description
IMPORTANT NOTE: The purpose of this DEMO product is simply to illustrate its functionality and scope--it is NOT intended to be used in the classroom. The full version, available for $4.95, is ENTIRELY classroom-ready.

Language Arts Presenter: MicroLesson 2 (see Additional Notes below)
Time required: 28-33 minutes
Special Note: Distribute copies of the included organizational chart before starting this presentation.
By the end of this MicroLesson, students will be able to...

• recognize that literature is the art of writing and the author is the artist.
• generally estimate the number of authors and their readers.
• list at least two authors for both younger and older readers.
• define genre, fiction, and nonfiction.
• use lines and boxes in an organizational chart to show the relationship of genres.
• demonstrate mastery by correctly responding to 10 multiple choice questions.

This free version of Introducing Literature is complete and fully-functioning. The full version has no "Free Trial Version" stamps and includes an organizational chart, a word search, and a crossword puzzle.

With the presentation itself and both puzzles, an entire class period will be needed to complete all of the activities.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

This application is one of the 30 MicroLessons available in the series, Language Arts Presenter.

Each MicroLesson features animated talking avatars who present instructional material to your language arts classes via a smart board or a digital projector.

In addition, these MicroLessons include...

• definitions and examples.
• direct instruction.
• a summary of the instruction (in most MicroLessons).
• practice quizzes ranging from 5 to 15 questions.
• an on-screen answer key.
• a word search and crossword puzzle to extend the mini lesson (the words found in the word search provide the word bank for the crossword puzzle).

Teachers report that during MicroLessons, they...

• appoint students to be mouse operators while they roam the classroom, keeping a wary eye on the knuckleheads.
• become dynamic partners with the avatars, giving additional examples of concepts, checking for comprehension, and reading questions and answer choices orally to the class.
• record scores, grade papers, or even work on lesson plans.

All of the mini lessons in the Language Arts Presenter series are accessible with any of the major web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari. As a result, these apps are compatible with all versions of both Windows and Mac.
