Student Teacher

Description

Overview:
During this component students are engaged in a variety of expository texts to fortify their understanding and deepen their knowledge of global poverty. Students will read and classify information from news articles related to poverty on a character map using the five subtopics (causes, effects, challenges, emotions and hopes). After guidance and modeling of an article about homeless children in Colorado, students will operate in learning teams to become experts on a different news article. Teams will read and collaborate to create a poster showcasing their new learning about a person or group of people living in poverty. Working in diverse teams provides students with the opportunity to take charge of their learning while promoting higher-level thinking, oral communication and leadership skills ("Collaborative Group Work" 2012). 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.
