BOOKMATCH: Scaffolding Independent Book Selection
Read the Fine Print
Rating
5.0 stars
Overview:

This lesson prepares students to be independent and responsible for their own just-right book selections during independent reading time. Using the BOOKMATCH poster, the teacher introduces various criteria that influence book selection, such as length, language, topic, and genre. Students select books for independent reading using several of these criteria. In subsequent lessons, they discuss and evaluate their book choices and are introduced to additional selection criteria. Ongoing support and practice lead to increased awareness of their personal preferences as readers.

Book Summary Digital Platform Project -  CC by: Stacey Plott / Remix: Mollee Holloman
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Stacey’s original project was created for a 3rd grade lesson with students creating book summary graphics on Canva.com / This idea was remixed for 4th grade AIG and Library collaboration

In the AIG ELA classroom, students will read fiction books in their genre book study groups, as determined by the AIG coordinator. Throughout their reading, students will use Google Keep to manage notes and submit occasional check-in reflections using Google Classroom, with both the AIG coordinator and librarian available to read and respond to these reflection questions.

At the completion of their book, students will use their Google Keep notes and Classroom reflections to create a sharable artifact on a digital platform. Students will be given instruction for three separate digital tools that can be used for their summary: Canva for a graphic, Anchor for a podcast, and Flipgrid for a video.

In the digital artifact, students must include key details (no endings), character and setting descriptions, themes, as well as a “rating”. Students will create their artifact and present them in a digital gallery for other readers in the school to access from the library.

English Language Arts, Grade 11, The American Short Story
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this unit, students will explore great works of American literature and consider how writers reflect the time period in which they write. They will write two literary analysis papers and also work in groups to research and develop anthologies of excellent American stories.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Students read and analyze stories from several 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century American authors. After researching a time period, they select stories from that period to create an anthology. The readings enhance their understanding of the short story, increase their exposure to well-known American authors, and allow them to examine the influence of social, cultural, and political context.
Students examine elements of short stories and have an opportunity for close reading of several American short stories. During these close readings, they examine the ways that short story writers attempt to explore the greater truths of the American experience through their literature.

GUIDING QUESTIONS

These questions are a guide to stimulate thinking, discussion, and writing on the themes and ideas in the unit. For complete and thoughtful answers and for meaningful discussions, students must use evidence based on careful reading of the texts.

If you were to write a short story about this decade, what issues might you focus on?
What defines a short story? Just length?
To what extent do these stories reflect the era or decade in which they were written?
To what extent are the themes they address universal?

CLASSROOM FILMS

History.com has short videos on the Vietnam War (“Vietnam” and “A Soldier's Story”).

A Genre Study of Letters With The Jolly Postman
Read the Fine Print
Rating
3.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson, The Jolly Postman is used as an authentic example to discuss letter writing as a genre. Students explore letters to the storybook characters delivered by The Jolly Postman. They then learn how to categorize their own examples of mail. The Jolly Postman uses well-known storybook characters, from fairy tales and nursery rhymes, as recipients of letters. This children's storybook is therefore ideal for using as a review of these genres of literature and as a means of helping children begin to explore rhyme and a variety of writing styles. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.
