When reading ‘Wisdom Story #149’ by Paul Brian Campbell, the students will identify the cause and-effect relationship, verified by the teacher.
Formative assessments, such as worksheets that will serve as a quiz, will be used in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment, which will also involve listening to students’ responses after reading the selected stories.
Cause and Effect Worksheets, Pen, Scratch Papers (For Group Brainstorming), & Whiteboard Marker
Advanced Preparation by Teacher:
Prepare printed copies of the story and worksheets to distribute to the students. Prepare the needed materials for discussing and performing the ...view middle of the document...
3. After reading and brainstorming, discuss the cause-and-effect relationship to the whole class.
SAY: An effect is what happens in a story. A cause is the reason why something
happens. As you read, ask yourself: What happened? This is the effect. Then ask: Why did it happen? This is the cause. Identifying cause and effect helps you to understand the story.
4. Model cause-and-effect relationships.
• Have students from each group cite what they have brainstormed. Give emphasis on the topic.
• After sharing, proceed to ask the ff. from each group:
• What is the main cause? Support your answer
• What is the main effect? Support your answer
5. Have the whole class reread the same story paragraph by paragraph and tell all of the events that happened with. Then ask them to explain why these things happened. Remind them that they are trying to find the cause (reason why something happens) and effect (what happens in the story) of each event that happened in the story. Next, have each group brainstorm for causes and effects by providing a printed copy of a cause and effect worksheet. Next, let each group present their input in the worksheet to the whole class.
6. Ask the students to give conclusion to support their work and how they think.
7. Ask the each student to give a short generalization.
8. Review cause and effect. A cause is the reason why something happens. An effect is what happens in a story. Ask if they have any questions.
9. Have each group hand their worksheet and scratch paper for brainstorming. Then, let each student return back to his or her proper seat.
Meet with “student name” during group reading time.
