Learn about Greek gods, heroes, and creatures through digital storytelling produced by students who have learned research techniques.
This Empower Learner Activity is designed for MS English students studying the book Hoot. Students will self-assess, set preliminary goals, and think through learning strategies.
In this lesson students will examine the characters in a chapter who happen to have differing view points. This is an important factor for success with this lesson. Students will analyze characters and actively express theiir perspectives on different topics and questions. Students will use their background knowledge,previous learning from the book, and make inferences about the characters. During the "discussion" students use their acting skills to be a partticular character and discuss from that point of view. They will justify the stance they take as they speak in character. This creates a great understanding of perspective and view points before moving into deeper dives about author's perspectives.
