Room for Five: Senior High School English Language Arts. Teacher Guide.
This teacher guide contains teaching and learning activities to accompany "Room for Five," a video series developed by Alberta Learning. The teacher guide is designed to give teachers ideas for using and connecting the videos from the series to the outcomes of the new Alberta curricular programs. It features student activities for the opening credits and each of the nine videos, as well as four units that may be covered with the student activities or separately. The four units in the guide feature scripting, producing a film/video, interviewing, and effective communication; references are made to specific videos and, in some cases, to specific student activities. Each unit in the guide includes: a focus; a connection to particular outcomes from the Alberta "Program of Studies for Senior High School English Language Arts," Pilot Draft (April 2000) and to other particular outcomes; a reference to texts being studied; a reference to the particular text(s) that will be created; an overview, and suggestions for class organization and time; an assignment; notes to teachers, including suggested procedures and information; and ideas for assessment and metacognition. Appended are handouts/blackline masters and sections of the original shooting scripts for two of the videos. (NKA)
