Responsibilities Indicator(s): Contribute to the exchange of ideas within the learning community. 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). Scenario: To prepare to teach the children how to research the teacher and teacher-librarian meet to design and plan a beginners lesson on research about penguins. The teacher-librarian prepares a LiveBinder of resources to share on the SmartBoard, and pulls Non-Fiction books from the shelves on penguins. When the students come as a class the teacher-librarian reads 2 Non-Fiction books, goes over the parts of a book as a review, and discusses books from readings done in the classroom. To begin to teach the students how to research, the teacher-librarian will present the "Super 3" research method. Then the students will be shown the resources bookmarked in a LiveBinder to learn where they can find resources to do research on animals. The class will brainstorm facts from the books and websites and write them on the board. Students will then draw a picture of a penguin and write a sentence or a one to two word phrase with 1 fact about penguins. These pictures and sentences/phrases will be turned into an

2 online book with voiceover by the end of the unit. The online book will be shared with the children in the classroom on a later day. Overview: Concept: Students will begin to learn about how to research and find facts for a project. The essential question for this unit is,?how are penguins alike and different from us?? Final Product: For this unit, students' pictures will be uploaded into software at where they will do a voiceover of their sentence or phrase. The final product will be an online book that the librarian will print out for the classroom to have a copy and students will be able to share the online result with their family and friends through a link provided in their take home folder. Library Lesson: Goals include: - At the end of the unit, students will be able to recognize the parts of a book and remember what an author and illustrator?s roles are in creating a book. - The students will be able to analyze penguin facts they learn and compare them to what they have learned about humans, ladybugs, and flowers. - The students will be able to evaluate what penguins need to survive in their environment. Students will be able to name the parts of a penguin. - Students will design and produce a penguin book using - Students will be able to summarize penguin facts from their lessons into their voiceover of the penguin book - The students will be able to understand the difference between fantasy and reality and Fiction and Nonfiction. - The students will be able to name at least one part of the?super 3? research method of Plan, Do, and Review. - The students will be able to begin to classify and prioritize websites for finding facts about animals. - The students will be able to develop questions and share them with the class for research purposes. - The students will be able to use technology to analyze and create a way to share their learned information with others. Estimated Lesson Time: 60 minutes Assessment Product: The students will have drawn a picture of a penguin or have colored a picture of a penguin, depending on their ability, and will have copied a fact from the board or have written one from memory. The teacher and teacher-librarian will check students to see if they followed directions in drawing, coloring, and writing a factoid about penguins. If they chose not to participate, or could not participate, they will have to share what they learned from their time with the teacher librarian. Process: The students will be reminded/taught how to identify a Non-Fiction book from a Fiction book. The students will take knowledge from their classroom learning, the Non-Fiction books they have read, and from our online research as an entire class to brainstorm a list of facts and create their product. The students will be able to tell the teacher-librarian or teacher what a Non-Fiction book is and at least 1 fact they learned about penguins. They will also participate willingly in the creation of the final product using a Web 2.0 tool. Because they are kindergartener's they will gain or lose points by their participation, their ability to ask questions if they are confused, and a willingness to answer a question when asked. Student self-questioning: What is a fact? What kind of books do facts come from? Does the website or book answer most of my questions? Did I write down the source information so I can find the specific fact again? What do I do if I cannot find any information about what I am researching, in this case penguins? Instructional Plan Resources students will use: Still image (i.e.paintings, drawings, plans, and maps)

3 Moving Image (i.e. animations, movies, tv program, video) Interactive Resource (i.e. webpages, multimedia learning objects, chat services) Software Sound (i.e. music playback file, audio compact disc, recorded speech or sounds) Text (books, letters, poems, newspapers, etc.) Interactive Resource URL: Resources instructor will use: Laptop White board Smart board Other Other instructor resources: Non-Fiction books about penguins Instruction/Activities Direct instruction: The teacher-librarian will review what Non-Fiction and Fiction books are and show the spine so that students can see the difference. The teacher-librarian will talk about the "Super 3" research method and will begin to teach the kindergarteners how to research for facts. The teacherlibrarian will read 2 Non-Fiction books and the entire class will brainstorm facts from those books onto the board. The teacher-librarian will then work with the students on the SmartBoard using a prepared LiveBinder to share online resources to find facts about penguins. After each website the students will try and add more facts to their brainstorm board. Modeling and guided practice: The teacher-librarian will guide the students through a prepared LiveBinder of online resources and demonstrates how to find facts for their online book. Through discussion the students and teacher-librarian will decide which information found are facts and what they want to write on the board for later use in their online book. Independent practice: The students will draw or color a picture of a penguin and copy from the board or write a sentence, phrase, or word fact about penguins depending on their level of ability. Sharing and reflecting: The students' pictures and facts will be turned into an online book. The teacher-librarian will share this book with the students in the classroom at the close of the penguin section of the unit as a review. The students will reflect on their experience and share facts they learned with the teacher-librarian, teacher, and other classmates. Have you taught this lesson before: No Strategies for differentiation: Based on the student needs, the student will either draw a picture or color a picture of a penguin. The student will also either copy a word, phrase, or sentence from the board or write their own fact on the picture. The students also have the option of doing a voice over of their page in the online book. AASL/Common Core State Standards Crosswalk English Language Arts:
