Accuracy: Very Weak (0)

The link for one of the activities does not work. So some of the discussion questions do not make sense. It is not discussed about what "staying on task" look likes and how that can look different for different students. This can create a bias against neurodiverse students.

I am an elementary school librarian media coordinator and work with our counselor on character development lessons. This lesson appealed to me because its overview indicates that students would receive explicit instruction on how to participate in collaborative groups, and the standard would focus on the meaning and importance of personal responsibility and self-awareness.

This lesson follows the North Carolina Essential Standards for Guidance. Reading standards are identified but literacy strategies are not integrated in subject content. Collaboration between SLMC and counselor is not present but could be added.

The resource did not open when accessed from the GoOpenNC link and required clicking on an extra link in the lesson title. Activating strategy (video link and questions) was engaging. There was not a link for the mentioned worksheet. Lesson presentation (video) did not work as I do not have a Sway subscription; therefore, for me, the goals of the lesson were not met. However, the book Three Hens and a Peacock is good for teaching students how to value one’s own talent and not to point out the value or inadequacies of others’ talents.
