Dynamic Duo Text Talks: Examining the Content of Internet Sites.
Stokes, Valorie
This introductory lesson exposes students to a variety of online texts about Anne Frank and the Holocaust prior to more extensive study of these topics. Students are encouraged to cooperatively examine Internet sites as a primary source of information, and then share their impressions and opinions of the various sites. During the two 40-minute class sessions, grade 6-8 students will: work cooperatively in pairs; access and view specific sites on the Internet related to the topic they are studying; make observations that reflect thoughtful examination of each site's features and content; hold a "silent conversation," that is, an exchange of comments and ideas written on paper; and share their questions and thoughts about the sites together as a class. The instructional plan, lists of web 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. An observation and inquiry sheet for viewing websites about Anne Frank and the Holocaust and a silent conversation sheet are attached. (RS)
