Independent Reading Lesson Plan Overview

Page history last edited by Jayson Yeagley 10 years, 6 months ago

Second nine weeks

 

1. You will be making lesson plans just as you did last nine weeks.  The big change is that you will have to teach to a person who is not in AP Lit.  This person should be on the recording and should not provide a last name.  You will interact more with your student.  The student can change each time.  You want to think about this as you plan your lesson.  You can have a little more meaningful interaction this way.  Get them involved.  Ask them questions.  They do not have to have knowledge of the book.  You give them what they need for the lesson.  The student can be: A sibling, a parent/grandparent, a neighbor, a student (not in AP Lit), etc.  Mix it up each week.  Briefly introduce the person without giving too much info.  Again, everything else will stay the same besides this one element.

 

 

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

First nine weeks (Make Sure you add the SO WHAT)

Goal: To teach yourself important novels as you teach others.  All of this is in preparation for the AP Lit Test and life.

 

Due: 1.  One Blog with your lesson plans completed by each Wednesday at Midnight (housed on your wiki in the correct folder)

             2. One Podcast Lesson being presented verbally completed by each Sunday at Midnight (hosted on Podbean and iTunes)

 

 

Specifics:   

 

1. You must focus on one element in your novel that you want to explore in depth with your students.  You must have an authentic lesson plan designed to teach your objective within the context of your novel.

 

2. You must teach yourself elements while teachers others through reflection and research.

 

3. You must annotate for yourself and your students.

 

4. You must reflect on past lessons in order to look for ways to improve your podcast

 

5. You must not rush this process or fill your space and voice with empty and elementary concepts.

 

6. You must get into the book and lesson.  This is apparent via your passion for subject and your thirst for knowledge.

 

Label your lessons as I showed as depicted below: (Exactly)

 






 

 

Lesson 1 "Diction" in The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner Sept. 6th 2010

Objective:  The students will learn the important role that diction plays in the setting of Faulkner's Southern classic.


 

Procedure 1- Focus first on dialogue and dialect.  Bring in theory from Dr. Winston Blanderbaugh who argued, "

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum."  Connect his idea to the grotesque ideas of Faulkner, O'Conner, and Blakeman. (www.theguyisnuts.com/extranutty.htm) Give quick examples including 
 
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

  

 

Procedure 2- Discuss the findings that dialect reflects the setting by  
 
 
 
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.  Use the following examples to show that the time and place play an equally pivotal role for Cada as she tends to use the strongest Southern dialect when she is responding to social norms. 

 

Chapter 1--page 23  (include quote here) 
Chapter 3--Page 45 (include quote here) 
Chapter 5--Page 67, 78, and 99 (include quote here)

 


Review- Reconnect the idea that diction can play a key role in much bigger role in a narrative then one might imagine.  To drive home the point...connect Jim Tucker's Northern accent with the idea of the "Rude Northerner" as another example of Diction taking an active role in the book.
