Self-Assessment Strategies Indicator(s): Use interaction with and feedback from teachers and peers to guide own inquiry process Determine how to act on information (accept, reject, modify) Assess the quality and effectiveness of the learning product. Scenario: After reading a novel or play for English class, students will pick a main issue in the work and compare how the issue is perceived in two primary sources from two time periods. Newspaper articles will be accepted as primary sources in this assignment. One source must be from the time period of the novel. One must be from today?s point of view. Students will consider how three characters in their book view the issue. Students will consider these questions: Are the characters in agreement over the issue? What do

2 you think the author is trying to say by creating this situation? Would one character agree with the first primary source you found? Looking at the second primary source from?today?, ask yourself: have the ideas and perspectives about the issues changed with time? Has the issue been resolved? Why or why not? Students will create a PowerPoint to present their findings covering the issue and how the characters would respond to the primary documents. This is a 10th grade American Literature class. Overview: In the library students compare primary sources from two time periods relating to an issue in their novel or play. Students compare how the issue was perceived by characters in their work to how it is perceived by individuals today. The essential questions for this lesson are: Have the ideas and perspectives about the main issue of the novel or play changed with time? To what extent has the issue been resolved? Final Product: Students will create PowerPoint presentations displaying the two primary sources, the issue of their novel or play and how they perceive their characters would respond to them. Students will also analyze their issue in terms of today?s attitudes and defend their opinion. Library Lesson:? Students will learn to analyze their topic for keywords and keyword combinations to use in online searches.? Students will learn to develop questions to answer in their research about the issues in their work to determine what type of primary document to locate.? Students will learn to access primary sources online from the Library of Congress.? Students will learn to access historical newspapers using Google News.? Students will learn to access subscription databases with historical documents on the issues in their novel or play.? Students will learn to persist in revising their search terms as needed to generate an appropriate results list for their topic. Estimated Lesson Time: 90 minutes Assessment Product: SL and teacher use a student self assessment checklist (see attachment) to verify that each student locates a primary document from two periods in time on a theme relating to their work. Process: SL and teacher circulate as students use their own keywords to access primary sources on their novel or play. Students having difficulty locating primary sources at the time of their novel or play will need to be guided to revise their keywords or try other resources. Student self-questioning: Do I understand my issue? Do I know what the characters in my book or play think about the issue? Have I accessed the best resources for my topic? Do I know which keywords I need to pull up the best primary sources or newspaper articles? Did I use the best combination of search terms? Did I use too many search terms in the same query? Did I remember to match the search term with the correct field? Did I alter the combination of search terms and fields multiple times for different results? Did I evaluate the article to be sure I can use it before I made a source card? Did I make a source card for each primary source I will use in my project? Instructional Plan Resources students will use: Dataset (ie. lists, tables, databases) Still image (i.e.paintings, drawings, plans, and maps) Interactive Resource (i.e. webpages, multimedia learning objects, chat services) Text (books, letters, poems, newspapers, etc.) Interactive Resource URL:

3 Resources instructor will use: Projector Laptop Smart board Instruction/Activities Direct instruction: The teacher instructs students in the classroom with an overview of the project and explains the grading rubric. Students are instructed before they come into the library:? Choose a controversial issue addressed in your novel or play.? Consider how three different characters in your book view this issue. Are they in agreement? Do they have different opinions? Why?? What do you think the author is trying to say by creating this situation? In the library, the librarian uses a projection system with a Smart Board to show students how to access online resources using the pathfinder. Begin showing a primary source document from one of the primary source sets on the Library of Congress teacher's pages. Evaluate the resource together using the question guide provided on the teacher's pages(see sample document attached) <http://www.loc.gov/teachers/usingprimarysources/> Modeling and guided practice: After evaluating a primary source together, the librarian uses an online computer projection system with Smartboard models accessing and citing each resource on the class pathfinder. Taking examples from several students, the librarian brainstorms specific novels and issues to help students determine which keywords will give the best results. Students proceed to the library computer workstations. Accessing the class pathfinder, students begin their own search. The librarian and teacher circulate to monitor student work. Students not getting the results they expected are guided to revise their search terms and field combinations to increase success. Independent practice: Students continue to combine search terms to modify their results lists and locate historical and current primary sources relating to their novel or play. They must experiment with multiple online resources to determine which best supports their query(see reflection questions under checklist in attachments). The teacher and librarian continue to circulate and assist students as needed in finding sources they can use and filling out source cards. A few students will probably need to continue working on this assignment after school and from home. They now have the tools they need to complete their research for their assignment and create their PowerPoints. Sharing and reflecting: Students share their PowerPoint presentations and opinions about how the issues have been resolved with the class. The works from American literature used successfully in this unit are: Ethan Frome (1911) by Edith Wharton (Poverty 1900's); The Awakening (1899) by Kate Chopin (Depression in Women - Victorian Era), The Crucible (1953) by Arthur Miller (Witch Hunts, Puritanism, McCarthyism, Terrorism today); The Bean Trees (1988) by Barbara Kingsolver (Immigration); The Glass Castle: a Memoir (2005) by Jeanette Walls (born 1960)(Homelessness, Child Neglect). Have you taught this lesson before: Yes Strategies for differentiation: For students with physical disabilities, the databases and online search engines provide audio access and enlarged text. The keyboard helps those with fine motor disabilities. Much of the information gathering and citation collection can be done as point and click with the mouse.
