My goals for this lesson were to:
- have students connect our Sketch and Stretch vocabulary lesson to the words within the text
- connect our introductory lesson for Contrasts & Contradictions in "The Horror" to "The Tell-Tale Heart"
- teach a second signpost, Again & Again
- be EXPLICIT in all teaching
I began by reading "The Tell-Tale Heart," marking up my text, identifying the above elements and making some teaching notes:
As I was reading, I was making a sample CC/AA reading log. You can see that I do not always think in order.
Using all of my notes, I created my presentation, adding my nerdy sense of humor throughout. I have an underlying goal to educate on all things 1980s. If I had to endure the torture, so should they!
I am definitely going to have to do some proofreading tomorrow. I am a bit delirious at this point (and not Eddie Murphy style), but I was determined to crank this baby out tonight. Any and all feedback is welcomed.
As always, I will post feedback from the lesson as we progress through the next week.
