Student Teacher


This lesson has two components: 1) a fluency list of poverty words and 2) a world map of poverty cases. In the first component the teacher introduces a list of poverty words organized by part of speech that will be learned and practiced during this lesson. Fluency practice continues to occur throughout the unit in both the reading fiction and non-fiction components. Being able to read content vocabulary words, phrases and sentences fluently is so important in a student’s ability to comprehend complex texts and issues. Providing students with ample time and opportunities to practice academic language directly from their texts will allow this to occur (Rasinski "Fluency Matters" 2014). In the second component a large world map is used to investigate the issue of poverty by comparing the effects of poverty of people in 6/7 continents. Students will engage in speaking and writing tasks using the world map. This lesson was developed by Karie Gregory 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.
