STUDENT TEACHING LESSON PLAN OUTLINE Anna Bedillion EDUC 510C April 13, 2010 Student Teaching Lesson Plan Outline Introduction y y Edgar Allan Poe and ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ are the topics. The lesson should last one 90 minute block period for an 11th grade regular level American literature course. y ³Virginia Standard of Learning 11.7a. The student will:
a) Generate, gather, plan, and organize ideas for writing.´

(Virginia Board of Education, 2003). Learning Objectives In this lesson, students will:
y y y

Demonstrate knowledge of Poe¶s work ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ Identify the setting and mood in ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ Combine critical thinking skills and group-thinking skills in dissecting the meaning behind ³The Fall of the House of Usher´

Teaching and Learning Sequence
y

Introduction or Anticipatory Set: I will ask students to turn in their five-paragraph essay on the dramatic reading or acting of Poe¶s works during the tour of the Edgar Allan Poe museum the previous day. Before students hand these in, I will ask them to present the essays from their desks, reading them aloud. We will then discuss as a class, for a grade of participation, how the acting/dramatic reading enhanced the mood of Poe¶s works

y

Lesson Development: We will then continue the class by having students log-on to their laptops (assuming they are provided by the county as in Henrico¶s one-to-one program), and take the ten question online quiz on the Poe museum website (Wilson, 2010). Students will take the quiz and then determine how well they have done. We will share the answers together as a class.

y

I will then begin calling on students to start reading Poe¶s ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ aloud to the class. Once this reading is finished, I will give out a hand-out (Web English Teacher, 2010) of eight questions on Poe¶s ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ to students and divide students into groups of 4 or 5 depending on the class size. Students must each place their names on the paper and come up with answers to the questions to be presented in front of the class and then turned in for a grade. These questions will prompt an in-class discussion on ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ and its meaning, during which students must actively listen, participate, and take notes. The group work will be handed-in to me after it is presented.

y

Closure: Students will be able to provide their own personal responses to ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ in a five-paragraph formal essay to be composed and turned-in during the last 20 minutes of class.

y

Homework: Students will read the white board which has tonight¶s assignment listed and copy this down at the end of the class period. Some vocabulary words will be listed and students will need to create original sentences using these words in correct context after they have looked up the definitions in an online dictionary. The rest of the homework

STUDENT TEACHING LESSON PLAN OUTLINE listed will be to read Poe¶s ³The Raven´ and to be ready to verbally answer questions on ³The Raven´ and have a class discussion on it the next class period for a grade. y Formative Assessment: I will be asking students to read ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ aloud as a class, and then to get into groups to answer the eight questions on the Web English Teacher (2010) hand-out on this work. Groups will compose formal answers, present these to the class as a group, allow questions and class discussion during their presentations on the meaning of Poe¶s ³The Fall of the House of Usher,´ and turn in their responses to the eight questions on the hand-out. y Summative Assessment: Students will be graded fairly and equally based on if they fully answered the questions on the hand-out as a group and seem to have a good understanding of the work and on their own individual formal five-paragraph essay response to ³The Fall of the House of Usher´ and the meaning they got from the work and how it affected them personally. Finally, the homework given has the students reading Poe¶s ³The Raven´ and to be ready to respond to in-class questions and discussion the following class for a grade. y Grading Rubric: This is the grading rubric for the formal five- paragraph in-class essay
