Lessons Incorporating Information Literacy and Language Arts

 

Standards: I. Reading and Literature

 

Lesson: THE VOICE OF DREAMS: THE AMERICAN NOVEL (grades 9-12)

Overview: Students will examine the American dream (if it exists, its many meanings, if it is achievable) through the lens of American novels, authors, and characters. In addition to exploring a variety of literature, students will record and listen to real stories of people who are working toward the American dream. Then they will write a dramatic version of an American dream story.

Standards: Research Process, Reading/Media Literacy

 

Standards: II. Writing

 

Lesson: COMMUNICATING ON LOCAL ISSUES -- PERSUASIVE WRITING (grades 9-12)

Overview: Students will identify and research local issues which concern them by using the internet and print sources. They will then argue a position on the issue in letters to two different audiences, addressing their own purposes and considering the needs of the audiences in each letter. Students will work with peer groups as they draft and revise their letters before sending them to the intended readers.

Standards: Research Process, Technology Use, Reading/Media Literacy, Responsible Use

 

Standards: III. Speaking, Listening, and Viewing

 

Lesson: BROADCASTS & PODCASTS: ORAL STORYTELLING & DRAMATIZATION (grades 9-12)

Overview: After exploring the historical information surrounding H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds" broadcast, students will create criteria for effective audio dramatizations. They will then compose their own dramatizations (radio presentations, podcasts, or audiobooks) of a selected scene from an in-class reading.

Standards: Research Process, Technology Use, Reading/Media Literacy
