Critical Literacy: Point of View.
The critical literacy program described in this lesson plan encourages sixth- through eighth-grade students to question what they are reading by providing them with the language and skills needed to analyze a text. During four to five 45-minute lessons, students will: describe key information of a text from a prescribed viewpoint; discuss differing viewpoints; discover the importance of viewpoint in a text; and compose alternative viewpoints of a selected text. The instructional plan, lists of resources, student assessment/reflection activities, and a list of National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) Standards addressed in the lesson are included. A copy of the story "The House" is attached. (PM)
