Publishing Lesson Objective Students will be able to explain the structure in a research paper and begin the research process by answering guiding questions. Lesson Plan Connection mins: Students should be seated on the carpet with a partner. They will be expected to turn and talk throughout this lesson.
Learn how to be a good listener. Learn how to be a good speaker. Practice listening and speaking skills with classmates. Draw four columns down and four rows across the sheet of paper. At the bottom of each square write something that at least one student in the class may have experienced or a quality at least one student may have, such as "broken a bone," "loves pizza," "speaks two languages," "has been on an airplane," or "good dancer.
To being, play a few rounds of telephone with the class to demonstrate the importance of having good speaking and listening skills. Then have students watch Speaking and Listening Strategies to further explore good skills.
After watching the program, talk about experiences when students have had to ask questions or follow directions. Why is important to give clear directions?
What kinds of situations have you been in when you have had to listen very carefully to someone talking? Why is it important to develop good speaking and listening skills? Have students describe situations when they have not used good speaking or listening skills.
What were the results? Explain to students that they will play a scavenger hunt-type game with their classmates.
Hand out copies of "Have You Ever? To do so, they must match a classmate's name to the criteria written in a square. Each square must represent a different person, so a winning "Have You Ever?
Tell students that they will walk around the classroom and ask their classmates questions to fill in the squares on their sheet, such as "Have you ever broken a bone? If not, the student can choose to ask the person a different question or move to a different classmate until they have found one who has broken a bone.
Explain to students that they will also answer questions.
For example, if Mary is asking John a question, she cannot leave him when he has answered her question. She should wait until John asks his question and they are both ready to move to new classmates.
Remind students that everyone in the classroom will be working on their scavenger hunt at the same time, so it is important that students use indoor voices, listen to what their classmates are saying very carefully, and not to run. The first person to fill in all of their squares without repeating a name wins.
Tell students to raise their paper and call out if they think they have won. Give students time to complete their scavenger hunt. Walk around the classroom while students are engaged to make sure everyone is playing fairly and nobody is running.
Call time when a student has announced they have finished and have students quietly freeze where they are standing while you check the possible winning sheet. If the student is mistaken, have the class resume the activity. If not, ask students to return to their seats.
Discuss the scavenger hunt with students. Who learned something new about their classmates? What did they learn? Why was it important to use good listening skills during the scavenger hunt? Why was it important to use good speaking skills?
