Make 4- Lauren Imelio

Make 4- Lauren Imelio

Here is my thingy

For this make, I decided to create a lesson based on perspective. I found different poems that showed important events throughout Jacqueline Woodson’s life that I feel changed her perspective in life. Students learn the basics of perspective while putting themselves into Jacqueline’s position. I feel like 4th graders could begin to learn about perspective, and the Common Core Standard that would apply would beĀ CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.4.3. This standard says: 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). I imagine this taking place in the fall. Only the worksheet is necessary, along with the book to read the poems. I hope students learn that everyones perspective is different, it differs by what you’ve been through and how you decide to view life because of it.
