Teaching the Argument by Solving Mysteries

 

Product Description

Teaching the Argument by Solving Mysteries

This is a great introduction to any literature unit. It teaches students the proper approach to literary analysis, which can be used from grades 7 all the way to 12 in any levels of study.

This mini unit contains 8 lessons that teach students the proper way to form an argument. Many times students will use the right information, but they don’t quite know what to do with it. Through a series of crime scenes, students learn how to collect information (data), collect evidence, and explain how this evidence supports a logical conclusion, all while having fun. This unit teaches students skills that are needed in all literature units.
These lessons allow students to learn the importance of collecting data by taking careful notes, how to select only information that will help support a thesis (or a claim), and how to properly use the information by incorporating pertinent explanations to develop an irrefutable argument.

This is a fun way of learning the necessary skills for argumentation.
The unit contains:

A Student Guide with 12 pages of activities and notes
A Teacher Guide with 8 comprehensive lesson plans and activities
An answer Key with 13 pages of answers and sample texts to help model proper format for students
A downloadable Prezi Presentation introducing the argument and how to develop it.
An end unit evaluation with answer key and evaluation grid 6 pages
Material is available as both PDF and in Word format for easy modifications

Pages total 58 pages

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Creating Measurable Criteria for Student Work”

by The Creative Classroom

Pre-Kindergarten – 12th Grade

 

 

As we all know, a major component of the Common Core State Standards is students being able to self assess their learning and evaluating the work they produce. Therefore, it is our job as teachers to provide students with a list of measurable criteria that they can use to self assess their progress towards a learning target. In addition, the list of measurable criteria can help you to create models of exemplary work that students can also use to self assess. This step by step handout will help you to focus on the learning target to identify essential learning and develop how students will demonstrate mastery of the learning target. You can then take these pieces of the puzzle to create clear and specific statements that describe exactly what your students needs to do to master their learning in any subject. There is also a model handout already completed to help guide you through the process of creating measurable criteria.

FREE 5-E Model Lesson Planning Tool

 

Want to know more about the components of a 5-E model lesson plan? 

One of the best ways I have found to teach a good math lesson is through the use of the 5-E model. I love the 5-E model because it allows the students to explore and discover the content on their own before I provide additional information and strategies.

 

The 5-E model also allows me to facilitate the lesson through questioning and assess the students’ understanding throughout the lesson through my observations. While I regularly plan my lessons using this format, I have found it necessary to adapt the format to fit the needs of my students. With that in mind, I will add that this lesson format may take me more than one day to complete and I sometimes complete several explore and explain cycles before getting to the elaboration stage. It all depends on the students!

 

You can get a more detailed look at how I use the 5-E model lesson with my free lesson plan template. It includes a description of each of the five Es and activity ideas that can be used to address each component. 

Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my 5-E model lesson plan template.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “FREE Interactive Phonics Segmenting Flashcards (CVC) “Mystery Words””

by KB3Teach

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

FREE Segmenting Flashcards: Reinforce letter/sound correlations while practicing segmenting and blending sounds. Common Core standards (RF.K.2d; RF.K.3a)

CURRENT SAMPLE FILE (Short “A”) INCLUDES:
– 16 Mini Interactive Flashcards
– 16 Vocabulary Tracing Cards
– 16 “Write and Wipe” Picture Cards
– Sentence Template
– B&W Flashcards & Vocabulary Set

FOR THE COMPLETE FILE (Short “A”) CLICK HERE:
Interactive Flashcards (Short “A”)
– 32 Mini Interactive Flashcards
– 32 Vocabulary Tracing Cards
– 32 “Write and Wipe” Picture Cards
– Sentence Template
– B&W Flashcards & Vocabulary Set

ADDITIONAL FLASHCARD SETS:
Interactive Flashcards (Short “E”)
Interactive Flashcards (Short “I”)
Interactive Flashcards (Short “O”)
Interactive Flashcards (Short “U”)
Interactive Flashcards *AEIOU* (BUNDLE)

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Print one 8.5×11 page per student (8 flashcards per page)
2) Students cut on dotted lines to make individual flashcards.
3) Students use picture cues to fill in the missing letters (mouse/apple/turtle = m / a / t)
4) Students use individual flashcard sets to “test” a partner, blending phonemes into CVC words (c / a / t = cat)

Note: If students are just beginning to learn the sounds of the letters, and are still learning how to segment and blend, you might want to cut the 8.5×11 sheets into two sets (an/at endings) and use them on two different days.

Suggested Extension:
Students read/blend the word, then draw a picture on the back of the flashcard. For more advanced students, have them write a simple sentence using the words in context.

If you’d prefer letter tiles instead of flashcards, I do have a set of “Interactive Letter Tiles” (requested by another wonderful buyer) that includes A-Z tiles, as well as a set of digraph tiles.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Gold Coins Missing Numbers 0-20 FREEBIE”

by Sherry Clements

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

 

 

Gold Coins Missing Numbers 0-20 FREEBIE —

This two page freebie gives students the opportunity to practice writing numbers 0-10 on one page and 11-20 on the second page. The first and last numbers on each page are included to get the students started. Numbers are written on gold coin shapes to give motivation for the skill. A number line is included at the top of both pages to aid students in writing the numbers correctly and in order.

These pages can be laminated or put in a page protector for a math center and have students fill in the correct numbers with a dry erase marker. Then wipe the sheets off, and they are ready for another student.

They can also be used as a race to the end activity. Make two copies of the chosen sheet 0-10 or 11-20. Have two students see who can correctly fill in the numbers first without writing them backwards and making sure they are written neatly so they can be read.

I hope your students have fun with this FREE number writing activity!

Please leave me some love/feedback–Thanks!

Other teachers who’ve tried my seasonal grammar worksheets shared these classroom success stories:
♥ “This was a fun activity for my SAT Prep class. The examples were great for high school – they weren’t too elementary for 10th and 11th graders. They enjoyed the examples and I liked that they weren’t too easy and weren’t too hard – great for review and discussion.”
♥ “These were so fun to use, and with so many options, I was able to use some with one level and some with another which helped since I have multiple kids taking both classes and I hate to have them do the same thing!”
♥ “Another excellent product from Team Faulkner. Great product. A true time saver.”

FREE Math Station Game Bag Labels

 

Need to organize your math station materials? 

One of the most challenging parts of implementing math stations is staying organized. Because math stations have a lot of moving parts, it can be time-consuming to manage all of the materials; however, if you invest the time upfront to organize your materials, it will save you hours of time later.
To help you get organized, I’m sharing a free copy of my math station game labels. The labels are formatted for Microsoft Word and can be printed on Avery (5163)-style shipping labels. After printing, write the name of the game in the center space.
Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of my math station game bag labels.

Need to get your math station materials organized? 

One of the most challenging parts of implementing math stations is staying organized. Because math stations have a lot of moving parts, it can be time-consuming to manage all of the materials; however, if you invest the time upfront to organize your materials, it will save you hours of time later.

One of the strategies that has been most useful for me is to keep station games and activities organized in labeled plastic bags that include all of the necessary materials. I can then store the bags in a file cabinet for easy access later.

Click here or on the image above to grab a free set of labels to use in your classroom to organize your game materials. The labels are formatted for Microsoft Word and can be printed on Avery (5163)-style shipping labels. After printing, write the name of the game in the center space.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Classroom Writing Prompt Journals FREEBIE”

by Mr and Mrs

1st – 5th Grade

 

 

To celebrate 500 followers (seriously, you guys rock!!) Here is a fun freebie to spruce up your writing centers!! It includes 30 writing prompt/classroom book covers. Here’s how I use them (feel free to use anyway you’d like). Print them out (and laminate for durability). Then I run the writing paper back to back, this offers pages with a front and back. Then each student in the class makes a page responding to the prompt. After they are done, I bind each student’s page using the prompt as the cover. Now you have a classroom book! I put them in our classroom library, and do a drawing for them at the end of the year. I hope you enjoy!!
