In this lesson, students will learn about a topic in three different text formats. They will then evaluate each format to determine the pros and cons. Students will also assess the credibility of each text.
This lesson plan is a simple project to have students show that they can use a template, add pictures of their choice and add a few paragraphs of body text to a document. This is something that can be done in any program, but this specific lesson is designed for Pages (Apple's version of word processing).The idea is to make a summary of school events that have happened in the first two-three weeks of school. This lesson could be modified for any three week stretch of school that aligns to your scope and sequence. The important part of this project is that students learn how to add pictures, use a template and add some text for their desired school activities.
In this lesson, students read informational pieces about whether or not schools should teach cursive writing. They will evaluate the arguments presented and then choose a side of the issue. Finally, they will write their own arguments expressing their points of view.
