1 5th Grade MELD Lessons Aligned to CCSS 10 Days Start Smart Overview Overview Collaboration across the curriculum is a required skill! On their way to becoming college prepared and career ready, students must: be prepared to effectively engage in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 5 topics and texts, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly (SL5.1) follow agreed-upon rules for discussions,as well as carry out assigned roles within academic conversations (SL5.1.b) differentiate between contexts that call for standard or academic English (e.g., presenting ideas) and situations where non-traditional discourse patterns are appropriate (e.g., small-group discussion) (SL5.6) In addition, as students engage in collaborative conversations about grade appropriate content, students will be expected to: come to discussions prepared, having read or studied required material; explicitly drawing on that preparation and other information known about the topic to explore ideas under discussion SL(5.1.a) pose and respond to specific questions to clarify or follow up on information, and make comments that contribute to the discussion and link to the remarks of others (5.1.c) identify the reasons and evidence a speaker provides to support particular points (SL5.3) CLR DOES NOT replace ineffective classroom management. Rapport = a connection between the teacher and the student that leads to an understanding based on care and concern for one another Relationship = building relationships that lead to trust Respect = mutual respest between the students and the teacher Being Positive, Proactive, and Preventive Requires explicit direction, practice, and consistency...high Expectations!!! (Hollie, 2011) 1

Follow agreed upon rules for discussion and carry out assigned roles. c. Pose and respond to specific questions by making comments that contribute to the discussion and elaborate on the remarks of others. CCSS.ELA LITERACY.RL : By the end of the year, read and comprehend informational texts, including history/social studies, science, and technical texts, at the high end of the grades 4 5 text complexity band independently and proficiently.. Materials and Resources Essential Question Big Idea MELD Lesson Objective(s): (Intended Student Learning Outcomes:) Protocols for Culturally Responsive Learning and Increased Student Engagement Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching and Learning Hollie s text Excerpt pg World Maps, Globes, and City Maps Advanced Graphic Organizer Crayons, scissors, glue and large blue construction paper MELD Journal Why are protocols important to us? How are your experiences different or similar to others? Intended Student Learning Outcomes: Students will be introduced to the Participation Protocols (PP) and practice using the Participation Protocols. Students understand why protocols are important to the classroom culture. 2

3 Lesson Sequence Introduction: Participation Protocols (Use a similar, or your own, explicit procedure for teaching Participation Protocols (PP) and Discussion Protocols (DP) 1. Gather students in a common meeting area. Display a World Map and ask students to share a city, state, country or continent that they have visited, read about, or learned about in multi media using the Whip Around Protocol. (Prior Knowledge, PP) 2. Introduce the procedure for the Think Pair Share (TPS) protocol. Then have students use TPS to discuss why learning about other cultures through geography is important for understanding how we all have different backgrounds that make us special. (DP) 3. Explain that Participation Protocols are communication and collaboration management systems, they tell when and how to participate with the class as a whole. (Set Purpose) 4. Introduce the Raise a Righteous Hand protocol by pointing to it on the Participation Protocol poster, and explain its purpose. Practice using the Raise a Righteous Hand protocol with the class. (PP) 5. Ask students to Raise a Righteous Hand to share their knowledge of geography. Record their ideas on chart paper using an appropriate Advanced Graphic Organizer (AGO) like a Circle Map. Whole Group: 1. Teach a Call and Response chant: Are you ready? Yes, I m Ready. Select a few Call and Response protocols that you are comfortable using with your students and practice using them with the class. Example: Teacher calls out, Welcome, students respond, Back. Another example: 3

4 Teacher calls out: When I say Peace, you say Quiet. 2. Use Call and Response to get students attention from now on. Introduce Small Group/Collaborative Group Work: Use the Protocols to practice the kinds of Team Building skills students will need to participate in collaborative small groups. Let s work as a team! to reconstruct the World Map! Small groups will receive blue butcher paper to represent the ocean, and they will have to work together as a team to reconstruct the World Map. 1. Teacher divides the class into 4 groups to use the Roll em Protocol. Eachgroup will each receive one copy of the continents and the World Map to use during this activity 1. Each Small Group member will receive a copy of a different continent. They will identify the location of the continent on the map, and then use color to shade the continent. 2. A recorder from each team will neatly label the continents. 3. Teams will correctly place the continents in relation to the World Map Poster. They will collaborate to identify, label, and star Los Angeles, California. 4. As we continue to read about various cultures throughout the year, we will label and star geographical landmarks on the World Maps the students have created to Make Cultural Connections. MCC 4

5 Share World Maps: Introduce other Participation Protocols and Discussion Protocols to share group maps. 1. Explicitly teach the My Turn, Your Turn protocol. Then use My Turn, Your Turn to share group maps. (PP) Independent Practice: 1. Students write a paragraph in their MELD Writing Journal describing where they live. Students may include the continent, country, state, city, and street address that describe where they live. In addition, students may add descriptions of their houses or apartments as they add more detail to their writing. Wrap Up: Conclude MELD lesson with a summary of learning 1. Summarize today s learning. Today, we learned 2. Return to the Big Idea Question by asking, Why are protocols important to us? Use an appropriate Discussion Protocol to get students response.

Students annotate Sam s experiences using a Circle Map. Introduce Small Group/Collaborative Group Work: Return to the idea of collaborative group work by telling students that it sometimes helps teams be more successful when its members have assigned jobs or responsibilities. What would happen if there weren t a teacher in the classroom? 1. Establish your rules and procedures for Collaborative Groups. (CCLE) 2. Have students make a Silent Appointment with a partner 3.
