    Students are given a blank piece of paper and crayons. They are asked to draw a picture of characters for a specific story, an event that took place, or a setting from the story. If students are verbal they can describe what they drew after they are finished.

    positional vocabulary. The teacher will video tape the students sequencing and explanation. The teacher will video tape a few times a year to show student growth and development.
    The teacher will rate the students understanding based on the rubrics below. The teacher will also keep in mind that some students are younger and will have another year of preschool. Other students are non-verbal so they would not be able to perform verbal tasks to demonstrate learning. Non-verbal students should also be provided with word cards to represent the vocabulary words they can use with retelling or sequencing the story, to help them demonstrate that they know what these words mean and how they should be used.

    The students have been exposed to various topics in U.S. History throughout their schooling, but this will be their first formal, in-depth lesson on the United States Civil War. Most of the concepts presented will be new, so it is critical to accurately assess student readiness. The topic is fairly important in the overall curriculum due to the fact that the Civil War was a divisive, polarizing, destructive conflict that heavily impacted the lives of many different Americans. It is important that students learn how the Civil War influenced future events in U.S. History, partuclarly how it impacted race relations. Students should be cognizant of the fact that the Civil War has helped shape the social dynamics present in America today. The textbook does a fairly thorough job of presenting relevant concepts, but some students will require modified instruction. The content will be presented utilizing a variety of modalities.

    Questions pertaining to Students:
    I have a few bilingual students where Spanish and English are spoken in the home, but I don't have any ELL students per se. All of the students have a pretty firm grasp of the English language. As many of my students are African-American, I think they will experience a deep, personal connection to the material. They will be eager to learn how the slavery issue and the subsequent Civil War impacted African-American culture, and how it influenced race relations and the African-American experience. Some of my students have reading difficulities, so instruction will have to be modified to meet their individual needs. The students will not be able to learn effectively by exclusively reading the textook, but instead they will be exposed to a variety of instrucitonal modalities. The students will have to be taught unfamiliar vocabulary terms, for there were many words and phrases used during the Civil War era that are not often heard in today's vernacular. A significiant amount of instructional time needs to be devoted to assisting students with vocabulary. Without a clear understanding of important vocabulary terms, the students will not be able to acquire a firm grasp of the larger concepts. It is cetainly possible that many of my students have experienced racism, and I think they will find this lesson particularly meaningful. This lesson will provide them with the opportunity to explore their cultural roots more thoroughly. I will consistently apply behavior modification techniques to manage students with concentration problems. As stated previously, I'm hoping the students will find my enthusiasm infectious, and this will lead to the students having greater focus. Those students who are disinterested in the subject matter will have to be provided with appropriate learning materials designed to heighten student interest.

    Student's Learning Profile:
    The teacher needs to try and incorporate many of the learning profiles of their students to help interest their students and teach them the best way possible. Trying to incorporate the learning styles that the teacher has noticed in the classroom can be beneficial for all students because even if a child appears to learn best from one style, it is important for the student to have different opportunities to explore the concepts in a variety of ways.
    ...
    Computer- Students will use the kidspiration web program to create story boards of every day events. This will guide them to understand the concept of sequencing events as it pertains to events in their lives. Student will be shown an example of how to create these based on the everyday event "Going Home" in this example students know first they get their coat, then their hat, next is their mittens, and then their backpack. Then the can go to the bus and then bus will take them home.

    Storytelling- The whole class will listen to a story read by the teacher. After the story is read the teacher will work with the class to put story event cards in the correct order modeling this activity. Once the cards are in order the teacher will guide the students through the the sequence of events and help them to use positional words to retell what happened first, next, after, at the end etc. When the teacher has modeled this activity several times during whole group instruction and feels that the students are ready to work on this task, the teacher will allow the students to work in small groups or with a partner, providing several story sequencing cards from the stories that have been read to the class. The teacher will then oversee the groups and listen as the students share the stories with their classmates to make sure they use positional words appropriately.
    Acting- Groups of students will act out scenes from the story. They will demonstrate their ability to retell important events from the story as well as understand the importance of the ordering of the events and how it affects the story.
