How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
One of the most interesting literary elements is about the characters. They can be characters in books, movies, television shows, or poems. Day 1:We will look at several common characters and discuss the characters by asking questions using the socratic method including understanding the role of the main character. Students will also start brainstorming about who is their favorite character and describe that character. I will use a powerpoint to further illustrate the lesson, and discuss...
Students will be able to recognize the characters in famous books, movies, or television and answer socratic questions about the main character. Students will be able to identify any other characters in the story. Students will be able to become the character of their choice and be able to answer questions from other students about his/her life. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.3.3 Describe characters in a story (e.g., their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.4.3 Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character's thoughts, words, or actions). CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.5.3 Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters interact).
The homework for Day 1 is to come up with a character that they enjoy. ( Peter Rabbit, Charlie Brown, Aslan, etc). Dress up like that character and be able to be that character on the second day of class. Each student will introduce themselves as their character, describing details about their character using FAST (they will learn this in class). The student will be given a set of questions that their character of choice should be able to answer for class on day 2 and student should be able to use Feelings, Actions, Speech, and Thinking to talk about their character. Write at least 6 sentences about your character. Who are you? How old are you? When were you born? What are you famous for? Are you educated? Where did you go to school? What do you like to eat? What do you like to do for fun? How would you describe yourself? ( kind, stern, silly, serious) What do you look like? What do you like to wear? What is the most important thing in your life? What else should we know about you? **** Students can be as creative as they want with these questions.
Whatever is needed to dress up as their favorite character.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Peer assessment. How convincing was your student being his/her character?
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
