While pumpkin size is generally controlled by genetics, any factor that limits plant growth will adversely affect it's size. This includes water, temperature, insects , diseases, pollination, fertility, soil type, plant population, weeds, etc.
For standard carving without a stencil, decide if it should be tall and narrow, or more rounded, based on your ideas. Select pumpkins that are uniformly orange meaning that are ripe, have no bruises, cuts or nicks.
…two succulent oval baby leaves break through and unfold like a pair of opening hands which soon look like low flying butterflies.
Look at the text resources.
What examples of internal text features can you find? Mark each with a post it to share out one of each type with the whole group. Pay attention to the words that “signal” that structure.
We will guess which type it is.
What role do illustrations, graphs, subheadings and other external text features used to convey information and highlight important points?
Creating Strategic Readers, p 174
This project is composed of two parts: Part 1: Planning for Nonfiction Lessons and Doing Written Reflection and Part 2: The Content Area Task. Part 1 will be your final project for EDS 361A grade. It consists only of the written reflection (Part 1, numbers 5-7). Part 2 will be used as part of your credentialing requirements and will not be a part of your final grade but will be scored according to the included rubric (EL 2). Both parts will involve lessons you will plan and partially implement that teach reading comprehension through a read aloud that uses nonfiction text.
1. Select a nonfiction text related to interests of students or to the content areas you are studying (“Umbrella Topics” in Math, Science, or Social Studies). Annotate the publication information and describe the rationale for your selection.
2 Select a reading comprehension strategy to teach. You should consult grade-level standards and your cooperating teacher for this selection. Choices include:
` Connecting text to self, text to text, text to world
Identifying nonfiction features
Distilling Important ideas from Interesting Details
Reading and Inferring Answer to a Specific Question
Many additional instructional activities are described in Strategies that Work.
5. Reflect on your lesson. Write up this lesson reflection (approximately two double-spaced pages). Detail what went well through specific observations of student behavior and your recollection of your teaching decisions. Detail what did not go as well, providing specific observations of student behavior and your teaching decisions. Try to avoid blaming students and making generalizations. Be as specific and detailed as possible.
6. Reflect on your lesson sequence. Explain how these lessons are interconnected, as well as adjustments you would make, based upon the implementation of one lesson. Write up this sequence reflection (approximately two double-spaced pages).
7. Hand in a printed copy of your reflection on the lesson and the sequence by Monday, December 13, 9:00 a.m.. You may teach more than one lesson, and select from these for your reflection You may teach more than one lesson, and select from these for your reflection.
Overview of Task
Complete a plan for each of two lessons (Part 1, #4).
√ Be sure to address the current curriculum content and related academic language.
√ Identify standards by standard number, followed by the text of the standard. If
only a portion of the standard is being addressed, then only list the relevant part.
√ Use the lesson plan format.
Submit copies of all instructional materials, including handouts, overheads and informal and formal assessment tools used during ht lesson segment. If any of these are included form a textbook, please provide a copy of the appropriate pages. If any of these is longer than four pages, provide a summary of relevant features in lieu of a copy (TPEs 1, 2, 4, 7, 9)
Label each document with a corresponding lesson number.
Provide appropriate citations for all materials whose sources are from published text, the Internet or other educators (this includes the nonfiction text).
Be sure to address each of the prompts in the Planning Commentary.It is suggested that you insert the prompt in the commentary.
Write a commentary of approximately 5 double-spaced pages (including prompts) that addresses the following prompts. You can address each prompt separately, through a holistic essay, or a combination of both, as long as all prompts are addressed.
5. Describe any teaching strategies you have planned for your students who have educational needs (e.g., English learners, GATE students with IEPs. Explain how these features of your learning tasks will provide students access to the curriculum and all them to demonstrate their learning. (TPEs 9, 12)
 Language demands can be related to vocabulary, features of text types such as narrative or expository text, or other language demands such as understanding oral presentations. For early readers/writers, this will include sound-symbol correspondence and a word as a text but might also involve the development of oral skills which are antecedents to reading and writing, oral narratives and explanations.
