Assessing and Reteaching Key Ideas with Langston Hughes Short Stories
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This unit was planned as an intervention series for students struggling in this area of the standards. Our PLC selected these literary texts to teach because they are rich in key ideas and themes. Both stories are authored by Langston Hughes. "Thank You, Ma'am" will be used for the pretest. Then several actives will be used over the next two days to help students go deeper into the rich vocabulary, characterization, and themes of the story, to ultimately improve their understanding of the plot and key ideas. Finally, students will be asked to use some of the same comprehension strategies as they read the story, "Early Autumn." This will culminate in a post-test on the second story.

It is to be used in three lessons, approximately 40 minutes each. A teacher could easily adapt the lesson to be used in a whole group setting, over the course of more days, before administering the final post assessment.

Conflict and Diplomacy in the Middle East: External Actors and Regional Rivalries
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

The Middle East’s geographical and strategic uniqueness has made every great power in history to seek to advance its interests in the region. Yet, the region constitutes the greatest single reserve of oil in the world, which has made it a regular source of foreign interference in the post-World War II era. In addition to its geographical and strategic uniqueness, the Middle East is the birthplace and spiritual center of the world’s three most important monotheistic religions. Due to its geopolitical importance, any inter- and intra-state conflict in the Middle East has the potential not only for destabilizing the region as a whole or upsetting the regional balance of power but also affecting global stability. After employing the Regional Security Complex Theory (RSCT) in order to define and delimit the region of the Middle East, the chapters of this book address the question of regional order, examine how regionalism and globalism feature in Middle Eastern integration processes, explore regional bids for hegemony, and investigate the approaches and policies of major international actors.

English Language Arts, Grade 12, Things Fall Apart
Rating
0.0 stars

In our lives, we are constantly telling stories to ourselves and to others in an attempt to both understand our experiences and present our best selves to others.  But how do we tell a story about ourselves that is both true and positive? How do we hold ourselves up in the best possible light, while still being honest about our struggles and our flaws? Students will explore ways of interpreting and portraying personal experiences.  They'll read Chinua Achebe's novel Things Fall Apart , analyzing the text through the eyes of one character. They'll get to know that character's flaws and strengths, and they'll tell part of the story from that character's perspective, doing their best to tell an honest tale that presents their character's best side. Then they'll explore their own stories, crafting a personal narrative about an important moment of learning in his or her life.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Students read and analyze Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart , viewing the events and conflicts of the novel through the eyes of one of the central characters.
Students write a two-part narrative project: one narrative told through their character’s perspective and one personal narrative about an incident in their own life.

GUIDING QUESTIONS

These questions are a guide to stimulate thinking, discussion, and writing on the themes and ideas in the unit. For complete and thoughtful answers and for meaningful discussions, students must use evidence based on careful reading of the texts.

How do our conflicts shape and show our character?
How can we tell a story about ourselves that’s both honest and positive?
How do definitions of justice change depending on the culture you live in?
What are ways individuals can react to a changing world? To a community that doesn’t accept us?

BENCHMARK ASSESSMENT: Cold Read

During this unit, on a day of your choosing, we recommend you administer a Cold Read to assess students’ reading comprehension. For this assessment, students read a text they have never seen before and then respond to multiple-choice and constructed-response questions. The assessment is not included in this course materials.
