PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This thorough lesson on Visualization begins by defining the concept and explaining how/why visualization is an important reading strategy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zY7Mz7Qi4x0 Students are then exposed to an authentic recording of Casey at the Bat from the 1800s to listen to and visualize the events.

In groups, students draw their own depiction of the story using the text as well as the recording. After a gallery walk, students compare/contrast their own depictions with that of other groups.

Finally, students watch a video depiction of the story (from 1964).

The power in this lesson comes from the meta-cognitive/reflection component. Students are asked to evaluate how and why the process of visualization helped them understand the setting and events progressively more as they went through the lesson.

A follow up homework assignment is provided.

The lesson meets a HOST of common core learning standards including:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.1 Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
