Lord of the Flies Review Session PowerPoint

Lesson Plan

Student Objectives/Student Outcomes:
Content Standards:
Materials/Resources/Technology:

15 min.
Start of Class: Students will briefly study their stems while I take attendance. I will ask students to put everything except for a black or blue pen. I will pass out the stems quiz. After they finish the quiz, they will pick up and begin to cut out the flashcards for the new list.
5 min.
Introduction of Lesson: I will explain that we will be doing further review for their upcoming Lord of the Flies test. I will ask students to get out their books and study guide/guided notes chart, as well as a blank piece of paper for notes.
20 min.
Lesson Instruction: I will use the PowerPoint presentation I prepared to help guide the students through symbolism, metaphor, and how to find and use textual evidence. For each topic, I will first ask the students for the definition of the term. I will then ask them to find examples of and evidence for symbols and metaphors in the book. I will fill in any holes in the students’ definitions, examples, and/or explanations.
Throughout and after class
Assessments/Checks for Understanding: I will be able to check for students’ understanding by observing and listening to their thought and action processes as they try to use the text to support their views. Ultimately, I will also be able to check for understanding as I read through their tests.
10 min.
Closure/Wrap-Up/Review: I will ask students if they have any additional concerns or questions about the book or test itself. I will remind them that their test will be on Wednesday.
After class
Self-Assessment (optional): I will reflect with Mr. N. about the successes and shortcomings of my lesson plan and PowerPoint.
