Lesson Sequence:
 Announcements and good news share out

 SSR-- read 22.4 in the textbook.

 Warm up-- Online textbook question—students independently write their answers (5 minutes)--- share your answer
with your table partner. GO OVER

 Connect: teacher leads connection between the SSR/Warm

 Objectives: Go over objectives--- and directions for the activity.

 Vocabulary Activity: Teacher: puts pictures on the overhead with a sentence starter ( From the pictures, I think
emancipation means ___________) (3 mins) Students finish the sentence starter--- turn to your table partner—
compare answers and discuss why you thought that. (2-3 students share out what their partner said and if they agree
or not) Students then watch a short video and listen for clues to what the word means. Students then change or
modify their definitions--- turn to table partner and discuss any changes you made and why. (2-3 students share out
what they think or what their partner thinks the word means)—whole class comes up with a class definition and we
check to see the textbook definition—we then create a TPR movement for the vocabulary word—practicing it 5 times.
 Test movements: Teacher test students by saying the vocabulary word and students do the movement. Teacher can
also do the movement and have students say the word/defintion.

 Assessments: Warm up and vocabulary activity are on a piece of paper that is turned in. Teacher does spot checks as
while students are working on warm up. Teacher listens to the students conversations during the turn and talk
moments. Teacher will continue to use TPR movements and work through the unit. The final vocabulary test will be
the final assessment on these words.

I know that my students like to be moving, talking, and for the lesson to be interactive, especially when
learning vocabulary. By having students explore what they think the words mean using different context clues
to help their investigation students are excited and engaged to see if their predictions are correct. Students are
able to use their classmates to help them form a good understanding of the vocabulary words. I also know that
many of my students are levels 1, 2, and low 3s. TPR, pictures, and videos are great ways to get those students
interacting and understanding the words. Students were able to read at the beginning of the class for 10
minutes, and then work through a matching question for that reading. This is a big hit in my class because the
students are able to try it on their own, but then see and understand how the correct answers and how to find
them in the reading (clues). I also provide opportunity for my students to interact and talk with their
classmates using the vocabulary words, sentence starters, and their own thoughts. Students were able to look
at pictures, listen and watch videos, and then discuss with their partners to make meaning of the vocabulary
words. Students were very engaged in this activity and my early assessments of their understanding are
positive. I really do think this lesson went well—my students were engaged and participating (over 90%).
With TPR I do require 100% participation before we can move on—it doesn’t take much though. My lower
level ELs are always participating and really seem to enjoy the TPR and whole class talking moments. I really
enjoyed covering my vocabulary this way. I think for the future I would use the same method. It does take a
while to cover each of the words, so this might really only work for the big vocabulary words.
