Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Kate Chopin's The Awakening is a frank look at a woman's life at the turn of the 19th century. Published in 1899, Chopin's novella shocked critics and audiences alike, who showed little sympathy for the author or her central protagonist, Edna Pontellier. A master of craft, Chopin wrote a forceful novel about a woman who questioned not only her role in society, but the standards of society itself. In this lesson, students examine Chopin in context.

Using their new understanding, students will be asked to select one of three published endings to The Red Badge of Courage best suited to their understanding of Crane's exploration of values in the novel.

The Red Badge of Courage: A New Kind of Realism
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

The Red Badge of Courage's success refleced the birth of a modern sensibility; today we feel something is true when it looks like the sort of thing we see in newspapers or on television news. Gone are the trappings of romance and poetry and all the old ways of memorializing battle that had come to seem increasingly artificial, unreal. Increase your students' understanding of Crane's influences and how the novel's style helped convey a new realism.

Overview:

Within U.S. History II, I encoutnered two issuesOne: how to assist students in developing connections between past events and today's world.Two, how to present hsitorical content to studnets while teaching another specific disipline.So, I developed a graphic organizer for each decade of the 20th Century that fosucses on not necessarily  "dry" historical content, but instead on more culturally impacting events on American lives, using videos from www.history.com.  Students were provided with the graphic organizer packet and the video segment was loaded onto the library computer, (so that I could be working with students in U.S. History I at the same time in another location).Students would review the video segment, usually not focusing on a specifiic historical eventcovered in class, but more about American culture during the time period being reviewed, such as (in)famous individuals, physical items such as toys used in the time period/decade, news events and occurrences such as sporting activities, etcStudents would then need to analyze an audio/visual lesson on a partiuclar subject, but also to formulate a connection between that subject and the world today.
