Student Teacher


Students will learn to embrace how others celebrate their birthdays. They will explore the feelings of others as well as their own feelings as they explore the differences in how people celebrate birthdays. This lesson was developed by Tracey Dix as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.

Very easy lesson to implement.
*Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content
*Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be expanded (by using the extended learning opportunities)
* Strengths: opportunities for reflecting, sharing and offering feedback. Global lesson.
*Opportunities: Could do the extended learning opportunities in the lesson to deepen the learning and provide collaboration between the SLMC and the classroom teacher.

This lesson is part of a 4-part series. *Students are gaining information through questioning and discussion. *Collaboration between the SLMC and teacher is not evident but could be added as part of extension activities through research. *There are real-world applications for students as they begin to think globally. Prior knowledge is activated because each child celebrates his or her birthday differently. *An opportunity for growth would be for a small reseach project investigating how different cultures celebrate birthdays or select a different holiday.

Educators would do well to use sources approved for the NC Global Educator's Digital Badge. (No small feat -- I'm still trying to get mine!)
