Ed 200 Analyzing Schools

introduction
Introduction
  • This curriculum project is a month long. Each week focuses on one culture, and the study of each culture utilizes all eight of Gardener’s Multiple Intelligences.
  • The cultures to be studied are Japanese, Mexican, Irish, and the Kenyan culture.
  • This presentation focuses on a week in which the Japanese culture is studied.
  • Gardener’s theory includes eight intelligences, or styles of learning.
introduction cont
Introduction, cont.
  • Gardener’s Eight Intelligences:

1. Musical

2. Linguistic

3. Spatial

4. Bodily-Kinesthetic

5. Logical and Mathematical

6. Naturalistic

7. Intrapersonal

8. Interpersonal

context
Context
  • This curriculum project is designed for a the first grade level of students who have English as their primary language.
objectives
Objectives
  • 1. Students will discover personal strengths through introduction to different learning styles.
  • 2 Students will increase ethnic tolerance, acceptance, and respect by exposure to new cultures.
  • 3. Students will better adapt to the school environment because of a reduction in the cultural gap between the home and school environments.
  • (Some of the results, because of the nature of some of the objectives, are not quantifiable, and therefore cannot directly be evaluated in this project)
objectives cont
Objectives, cont.
  • 4. Students will express their personal thoughts and identify the contributions of other cultures.
  • 5. Students will compare their previous knowledge of each culture with their newly acquired information about the cultures.
  • 6. Students will develop interests in each culture based on personal preferences.

Day 1:

  • 1. Teacher will start with “KWL” chart:

Day 1: Musical

  • Teacher will present class with pictures of Japanese instruments.
    • Examples: taiko, tsuzumi, kotsuzumi, etc.
  • Teacher will play CD of traditional Japanese music.
  • Students will be asked to identify what instruments they think are being played.

Day 1: Musical

  • Students will create their own miniature taiko drums with Quaker Oats cans and empty coffee cans and use chopsticks as drumsticks.
  • To demonstrate understanding of the style of music, students will keep beat with the drum beat in the music.

Day 2: Linguistic

  • The teacher will give a short presentation on the differences between the Japanese language and English.
    • Example: English letters are analogous to Japanese characters, 1 set of English letters; 4 sets of Japanese characters, etc.

Day 3: Bodily-Kinesthetic and Spatial

  • The teacher will present a short lesson about traditional Japanese dance and for what occasions it is performed.
  • The teacher will show a video clip of Japanese dance.
  • The teacher will give students pre-made pieces of paper with footprints drawn on them to guide the children to perform traditional Japanese dance.

Day 3: Bodily-Kinesthetic and Spatial

  • The students will move their feet in sequence with the drawn footprints.
  • As the final activity, the students will be asked to draw the footprints in the sequence in which they performed the dance. (which will also be the way that the pre-drawn footprints were given to them on their large pieces of paper).

Day 4: Mathematical and Naturalistic

  • All of the students will be given their own map of Japan and will be asked to count the number of islands that appear on the map.
  • In the final activity the students will qualitatively determine which island is the largest.
activities cont20
Activities, cont.

Day 5: Inter/Intrapersonal and Final Project

  • The students will combine their “final activity” worksheets from the four previous days to create personal journals.
  • Each student will write a letter to another assigned classmate writing one sentence about something they liked learning about and drawing a corresponding picture.
  • The sentence describing the one thing they learned about Japan should reflect which style of learning they personally found to be the most effective.
  • The letters will be included in the students’ journals.
activities cont21
Activities, cont.

Day 5: Summing it Up

  • The teacher will return to the “KWL” poster and record student responses to the question: “what have you learned about the Japanese culture?”
evaluation
Evaluation
  • There will be three methods of evaluation.
  • The first form will be based on individual student responses to the “KWL” chart.
    • This form of evaluation gives the students a chance to demonstrate their appreciation for the culture studied.
  • The second form will be based on the “final activity” worksheets that the students complete at the end of each activity.
    • This evaluation will give the students a chance to apply their understanding of the material presented in a constructive activity.
  • The third form of evaluation will be through what the students write about in their letters. What type of learning activity they liked will reflect their personal strength in learning styles.
