A. Into
Anticipatory Set: How will you excite the students about the learning?
Introduction – Conceptualization
Link to Previous Learning and Background Knowledge
To get the students excited, the class will discuss/recall what Malala kindness
(and determination) has done in her life to change the lives of girls in her
country.
I will also have them go to www.malala.org and read her brief story of her life.

B. Through
Instructional Input: What will students learn? How?
(Model, bridge, connect, schema, scaffolding)
Guided Practice- After teachers’ model, students are supported
as they practice.
List specific strategies you will use to support student learning.
Bridge- The teacher will talk about how little acts of kindness can have a huge
impact!
Graphic organizer- (Idea web) Have the students brainstorm an act of kindness
that they have received or committed (or an act they could do) and complete an
idea web.
Sentence strips- Use sentence strips or sentence starters to write a paragraph
about an act of kindness.

C. Beyond (Application/Enrichment/Follow-up)
Independent Practice: What do students do independently to reinforce
their learning?
How is learning extended to future learning and to the context of their life?
Students should recognize that even the simplest act of kindness can positively
impact someone else’s life (and their own).

XI. Assessment: How will students demonstrate that they have met the standard?
Students will write a paragraph about an act of kindness.

Procedure:
1. Introduce key vocabulary: community, kindness, prewrite, edit, final copy
2. Teacher will review Malala’s Magic Pencil and her community. The teacher will talk
about all she has accomplished and how simple acts of kindness can have a big impact.
3. The teacher will have an idea web for the students to fill out about an act of kindness.
4. Check for understanding. The teacher will review the idea web.
5. The students will write a paragraph about an act of kindness.
6. The teacher will review the paragraph and have the student edit and write a final copy
of their paragraph.
