The topic that I would like to teach for this class period is:
Purpose and Methods of Delivery for Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations
Students will be able to create and build from scratch a purposeful multimedia Powerpoint Presentation. Students will be able to recognize when presentation software is appropriate to be utilized to communicate information. Students will be able to understand the methods of presentation delivery and distribution.
Students will summarize and interpret presentation software and multimedia.
Students will differentiate, compare, and contrast appropriate and inappropriate content that can be utilized in a ...view middle of the document...
The students will be advised to follow along and utilize a note taking worksheet that is handed out to them. Next I will assess their knowledge by forming student learning groups and giving each group a scenario to role play for a Powerpoint Presentation. Once they carry out their roles to the classroom I will have the class interpret whether the Presentation that was presented was appropriate or inappropriate. Next we will move on to digital Activity module sheets that will be accessible on the students iPads. These digital worksheets are step by step guides that the students will utilize while working independently to create a PowerPoint Presentation about the State of North Carolina.
I will help students organize their knowledge by first having them to critique the video that will be shown on appropriate and inappropriate presentations. Next I will have students participate in a student led conversation about the appropriateness of presentations. Then I will have them take notes on the instructional lesson on the basics of presentation software and methods of delivery. Then as they work in groups the students will utilize their collaborative communication skills to have in depth conversations about appropriateness for presentations. Students will take that newly learned content and apply it when creating their own Powerpoint Presentation.
In order to activate the students’ prior knowledge, after watching the video clip I will have the students fill out a K-W-L chart that will consists of what the students already KNOW about presentation, what they WANT to know about presentations, and at the end of the lesson they will utilize this same chart to fill out what they have LEARNED. The end of the lesson when students are constructing their own presentation and when they fill out what they have learned from this lesson will be a way for the students to connect and differentiate old learning and new learning. The L portion of the K-W-L chart will serve as an exit ticket to assess if the students clearly understand the content that was taught in the lesson.
Students will be engaged in several different ways and scenarios. I believe that it is important for the students to chunk small bits of information learned in brevity and then utilize that information to create a final product. Engagment will take place for the students when they are watching the video clip, participating in their collaborative groups to create presentation scenarios, and when they work individually to create their own presentations.
The students declarative information will be stored throughout the lesson. Students will first identify...
