Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

As a way to support teachers with English Language Arts (ELA) instruction during the pandemic, the NCDPI ELA team created choice boards featuring standards-aligned ELA activities.The intended purpose of these choice boards is to provide a way for students to continue standards-based learning while schools are closed. Each activity can be adapted and modified to be completed with or without the use of digital tools. Many activities can also be repeated with different texts. These standards-based activities are meant to be a low-stress approach to reinforcing and enriching the skills learned during the 2019-2020 school year. The choice boards are to be used flexibly by teachers, parents, and students in order to meet the unique needs of each learner.Exploration activities are provided for a more self-directed or guided approach to independent learning for students. These activities and sites should be used as a way to explore concepts, topics, skills, and social and emotional competencies that interest the learner.

I Used My Own Words! Paraphrasing Informational Texts
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Paraphrasing helps students make connections with prior knowledge, demonstrate comprehension, and remember what they have read. Through careful explanation and thorough modeling by the teacher in this lesson, students learn to use paraphrasing to monitor their comprehension and acquire new information. They also realize that if they cannot paraphrase after reading, they need to go back and reread to clarify information. In pairs, students engage in guided practice so that they can learn to use the strategy independently. Students will need prompting and encouragement to use this strategy after the initial instruction is completed. The lesson can be extended to help students prepare to write reports about particular topics.

Rating

Overview:

This activity for gifted learners might serve as a culminating activity as part of a larger unit on fables, folktales, & myths. Students will take part in close readings of a variety of stories throughout the unit (including fables, folktales, & myths).  In this activity, gifted learners would work either individually or with a partner to closely read Amos & Boris by William Steig.  They will then work to decipher the central message(s) of the story and what fable(s) this story can be connected to.  As they read, they will pay special attention to two main details that help to convey the story:  the word choice and illustrations.  Using the central message of the story as an anchor and the saying, “A picture’s worth a thousand words,” they will then argue that the Steig’s word choice and illustration do or do not support the story’s central message in the best possible way by creating an audio/visual presentation that supports their argument.  This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
