Talking alone doesn’t result in tears, laughter, hugs or anger, though. Word choice, tone, inflection and body language can cause these, as well as a whole gamut of reactions. All play a part in what people hear, and as Shakespeare said in Hamlet, “Ay, there’s the rub”.
These Common Core and Bloom’s Taxonomy aligned lessons reinforce Middle School and High School students' previously learned concepts, promote comprehension and instill inductive, deductive, critical and analytic and creative thinking skills orally and in writing.
One activity is for individual instruction (Quote Journals: He Said…She Said) and the other is for working in pairs (Acting Out). Together, the variety of skills embedded in all of the handouts address visual and auditory learners. The Teachers Notes show that both follow the Show Me, Help Me, Let Me teaching philosophy that I attempt to follow in all of my lessons.
