PREDICTION OF LIKELY DIFFICULTIES STUDENTS MAY ENCOUNTER WITH THIS MATERIAL (possible misconceptions or assumptions) -Students might not be able to define poetry. They might have forgotten what is a verse and/or stanza. Content of the lesson. -This poem uses figurative language, thus students might have comprehension problems. Content of the lesson. -Since students are going to be exposed to new vocabulary words, they might be confused with the definitions. Content and process of the lesson. -Students might find the poem difficult to understand because they might not know key vocabulary words that are necessary for comprehension. Content and process of the lesson.

INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES: What the teacher does to help students cope with the difficulties in order to succeed STEPS (Fill in each box with specific information) Anticipatory Set (Into) -I will start the class by introducing how the music students listen to relate to poetry. -I will ask the whole class a few questions: How many of you listen to music? Did you know that music is a kind of poetry? -I will explain to students that many songs of any genre take a significant portion of their lyrics from poems or poetic works. In music people express their ideas and/or feelings. The same thing happens in poetry. First day-10mins. -Auditory -Verbal - Introducing the class to the similarities between the music they listen to and the poetry they are about to read is a strategy so that students can connect this material with real life examples. -This might make students realize that the concept of poetry is not as abstract as they might think.

-Then, I will also explain to students the class objectives. I will explain that: Today you are going to be exposed and be able to learn about poetry. You will be introduced to the poem Bolvar. For this lesson, we have three objective goals that we have to meet. The first goal is that in order to understand this poem, you will be able to work in pairs to discuss and analyze the poem Bolivar by Luis Llorns Torres. The second is that after doing vocabulary flashcards and playing the Speedy Gonzalez game, you will be able to identify the correct vocabulary words when given its definition. The third objective goal for today is that you will be able to utilize four vocabulary words in a sentence. This vocabulary words would allow you to deepen your understanding about the historical figure (Simn Bolvar) and Latin America culture. First day-5mins.

-Auditory -Verbal

-It is important that content objectives are stated orally, and they are displayed for students and teachers alike to see. It is important for both native and non-native English speakers to hear the objectives explicitly and clearly. -It is important to tell students about the objectives, and caution against listing the standards in an abbreviated form because it would be meaningless to the students. In fact, listing the standard number only would not be informative. -Written, studentfriendly objectives serve to remind us of the focus of the lesson, providing a structure to classroom procedures.

Instruction (Through) -I will present a PowerPoint introducing all the vocabulary words that will be important to know in order to read and understand the poem. In each slide, I will introduce the word, the definition, visuals, and two sentences for each vocabulary word. -Auditory -Visual -Verbal -Intrapersonal

-Students will be able to have the opportunity to practice their new vocabulary words verbally. -Students will be able to see the word visually, hear the word orally, and practice the word verbally. -I will be giving instructions to students orally, while I am drawing the three- column chart on the whiteboard. I will be modeling for students to clarify instructions. -By giving students the opportunity to receive participation point for making their own sentence, I give myself the opportunity to make a formative assessment about their vocabulary understanding. -Overall, my communication will be appropriate to students proficiency levels. I will enunciate and speak more slowly, but in a natural way to make sure my Spanish Language Learners comprehend the task. -I will be using the features of comprehensible input functions because English/ Spanish learners, no matter how motivated, cant be successful academically if they dont understand what the teacher is saying, what they are expected to do, or how to accomplish a task. In other words, I will clearly and explicitly communicate to students what they have to do.

Instruction (Through) -Students will get a piece of paper to start writing their vocabulary words. -They will do a three-column chart. -As they are listening to the teacher, they will have to write the vocabulary word, one sentence (made by themselves), and a visual that represents the word.

-Students will be able to see the word visually, hear the word orally, and practice the word verbally. -Students will be given instructions orally, while the teacher is drawing the threecolumn chart on the whiteboard. -Modeling for students is a great strategy for visual learners, special education students, and for English Language learners too.

-Before presenting my PowerPoint, I will instruct students to get a piece of paper. This paper will be used to write their vocabulary words. They will have to do a three-column chart. They will have to write the vocabulary word, one sentence (made by themselves), and a visual representing the word. -I will be giving out points of participation to students who want to read the definition and sentences that I have on each PowerPoint slide. Also, I will give out points to students who want to share their own sentence.

-Students will have the opportunity to receive participation points for reading the definition and/or sentences that I have on each PowerPoint slide. Also, they will be able to receive points for sharing their own sentence.

Guided Practice (Through) -We will do a game to practice their old and new vocabulary words from the chapter. -Auditory -Kinesthetic -In previous session classes, students were able to learn vocabulary words. During this class session, they will be able to add four more vocabulary words and practice both the new and old vocabulary words. They will be able to review all vocabulary words. -At this time, I will explain to students that this activity meets the second objective. Thus, during this vocabulary game, students will be able to identify the vocabulary words when given its definition orally. Also, during this game I will monitor students. I will be able to assess students and see who knows their vocabulary words and who does not. From there, I will be able to identify how much more time would I need to spend on this vocabulary words for other class sessions. -Likewise, this vocabulary game allows students alternative forms for expressing their understanding of information. Often English learners have learned the lessons information but have difficulty expressing their understanding in English, either orally or in writing (the same problem happens with Spanish learners). Thus, this hands-on activity can be used to reinforce the information presented. -Using a variety of techniques can be useful to make content concept clear.

-I will instruct students to get their old vocabulary cards (previously made in another class session) from the front of the class. -The game we will do is called Speedy Gonzales. In this game students seat with a partner facing each other. They use one set of cards to spread evenly on both desks. Teacher says the definition. Both students look for the word and whoever finds it, keeps the card. At the end, whoever has more cards wins the game and the winner receives a participation point. I will give students two minutes to get with their assigned partner and spread evenly their index cards. First day- 10mins

Closure (summarize; make meaning of the lesson) -Now, we will transition to reading the poem. We will read Nota biografica. We will read about the author of the poem. -After reading Nota Biografica students will be using the Sharing Partners technique. -Thus, students will be able to think and answer a few comprehension questions about the Nota Biografica. Questions include: where is the author from? What did the author write about? What does the author writes about poetry? What are his interests? -Then, students will be able to pair up with two other students and share their thoughts. They will be able to compare thoughts and to clear up confusions. -Next, we will discuss the title of the poem. I will ask students to raise their hands and explain their ideas about what they think the poem is going to be about. -Then, to model the pace and pronunciation of the poem, students will listen to the audio first. While we are reading, we will pause after each stanza and discuss each verse. Students will be identifying its true meaning by a Think-pair-share activity. Students will have to think first about the meaning, and then they will be working with a partner to make sure they understand the material. Students will pair up with a partner and share their thoughts. Then, I will ask a few students to report their ideas to the whole class. -Also, I will make sure to emphasize the vocabulary words we learned. Students were introduced to the words, words were written, repeated, and now it is the time for them to see them

-Auditory -Interpersonal -By doing the Sharing Partners technique students learn to work in groups. Also, they learn to feel confortable about sharing their own ideas, thoughts, and/or opinions. -This strategy lets students compare thoughts and clear up confusions. Excellent for collaboration. -During this time, students will be able to read closely literacy texts to determine how meaning is conveyed explicitly and implicitly though language (this ties back to the ELD standards.) -I will use the audio of the poem to model the reading. -Then, by reading out loud I will give students the opportunity to practice their reading skills.
