A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words. 7th Grade Lesson. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
MacDonald, David R.
This seventh-grade lesson plan asks students (working in teams) to create a multimedia advertising campaign on a current controversial issue. The lesson plan states that team members are not to apply any dialogue (either written or verbal) to any part of their presentation so that they may emulate the non-verbal, image only process that Martin Luther used when he began the Protestant Reformation. It provides background information on Martin Luther; presents the task; suggests activities for the team; lists resources; gives learning advice; discusses evaluation format; provides concluding discussion questions; and offers reflection questions. The teacher notes section gives grade level/unit; suggests length of lesson and lesson purpose; addresses history/social science and language arts standards; considers preparation for the lesson; and suggests interdisciplinary connections for art.
