Lesson Four


 

Essential Element: Oral Language (Oral and Visual Communication)

 

Framework(s):

  • OV.1.8.7 Deliver oral presentations using available technology

  • OV.2.8.5 Evaluate presentations using established criteria/rubrics

  • W.4.5.4-7.4 Use available technology to access information by using a card catalog, the Internet, and multiple Internet sources

 

Rationale:

Materials presented using multiple learning styles will help students to better remember the information. “People remember: 10% of what they read, 20% of what they hear, 30% of what they see, and 70% of what they see and hear.” (Caughlin, PowerPoint Workshop for Teachers). Using technology in the classroom will also help address the variety of learning styles.

 

Materials:

  • Computer with PowerPoint and projector

  • Individual research on US Presidents

  • U.S. History/Social Studies/Civics textbook

  • Classroom Library resources

  • PowerPoint planning sheet

 

 

Direct Explanation:

This week we will begin working on our PowerPoint reports on the Presidents of the United States. We will be using class time all week to work on the report.”

 

  • On Day One, students are to identify which president will be the topic of their report and begin writing notes using the class textbook and class library resource materials. Pass out a PowerPoint Slide planning sheet.

  • On Day Two, students are to write their first draft.

  • On Day Three, students are to revise, edit, and publish.

  • On Days Four and Five, students present PowerPoint to entire class.

 

 

Model:

The first thing I have to do is to decide which president to write about. We have had 43 men elected to the office of President. I looked at the list and chose to do my presentation on President George Washington. On my planning sheet, I will write the title and put my name on it. I will also include a picture of George Washington. When I begin writing, I will only make an outline. Each slide should include only one fact so that there is not too much information on each slide. I should have between 10 and 15 slides, including the title page and a bibliography.”

 

Guided Practice:

Pass out PowerPoint planning sheets. “Let’s work together to plan our title pages. In the large rectangle at the top you will put the title of the PowerPoint. I have titled mine ‘George Washington, First President’. I have my name, the class name, and the date. On the second page, you will begin with your text. You have to decide which facts you want to tell about your president.”

 

Application:

You will have the remainder of today’s class to work on your planning pages. Tomorrow we will finish our planning pages. On Wednesday we will begin the editing process and create your PowerPoint presentation on the computer. The class presentations will begin on Thursday. We will finish on Friday. I have posted the schedule on the board.”
