Preparing students to answer state testing prompts in which they have to analyze, take notes on videos and read texts is a daunting task. Scaffolding is extremely important; this 4-5 day lesson will keep your students' attention as well as help them step-by-step analyze nonfiction in the form of 4 articles and 5 videos. This lesson deals with the topic of PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES and their salaries, so it is a great one for discussion.
5 Video Clips
4 News Articles
3 Student Examples
Kid Friendly Language
Not only does this lesson provide you with kid-friendly links to videos as well as four news article links, it all relates to a high interest subject that almost everyone loves: SPORTS!
Take students through the lesson easily using ppt, guided notes, STUDENT EXAMPLES, and a GRAPHIC ORGANIZER. Using the graphic organizer will ensure that students jot their thoughts down in a way that they can easily find support with evidence from the texts.
Keep your students' interest and teach them to incorporate text evidence into their paragraph analysis. Enjoy the BONUS MATERIAL (more practice) at the end for further enrichment.
Have fun with the topic!
