Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standards for the 21st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, realworld situations, and further investigations. ISTE NETS - National Educational Technology Standards for Students 3. Research and Information Fluency: Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. b. Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media. 4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making: Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. c. Collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions. 2 3 4 5 6 Time Frame: 1-2 class periods Differentiation strategies for this lesson: Direct students to use learning tools included in our BCPSlicensed databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels/Lexiles, and embedded dictionaries. Use Closed Captioning on videos Allow students to work in partners or jigsaw materials Learning Styles addressed in this lesson: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Field Dependent, Field Independent Notes to the teacher: Collaborate with your school library media specialist to implement this lesson.
