Remote Learning Plan: Finding Purpose in Life (Main Ideas Focus), Grades 9-11

Overview

This Remote Learning Plan was created by Melissa Pilakowski in collaboration with Caryn Ziettlow and Eileen Barks as part of the 2020 ESU-NDE Remote Learning Plan Project. Educators worked with coaches to create Remote Learning Plans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The attached Remote Learning Plan is designed for 9-11 ELA students. Students will review and practice finding main ideas in non-fiction/expository texts and write an objective summary. This Remote Learning Plan addresses the following NDE Standards: 12.1.6d, 12.1.6f, 12.2.1a

It is expected that this Remote Learning Plan will take students 120 minutes to complete.

  1. The teacher link to the Quizizz is here: https://quizizz.com/admin/quiz/5ee7cf48fd38a7001b8b0c03

  2. I use Actively Learn because it allows students to view others’ answers after submission, which serves as a form of automatic feedback for them to gauge if they’re on track. You can also locate the article here and use a Google Doc, Google form, or another method to distribute this assignment.

  3. I usually use Google Classroom to collect student work. Use whatever LMS or methods that work best for you. This also can serve as a discussion piece or allow students to confer about what they think the main ideas are if you are able to meet together in person or in online breakout rooms.

  4. Synchronous Meeting Suggestions: Have students work in pairs on the Quizizz. You may also want to do more modeling in the opening paragraphs of “How to Find Your Purpose in Life”
