Title: UbD Lesson Plan: Personal Odyssey Scrapbook


1
UbD Lesson Plan Personal Odyssey Scrapbook
An Interactive Rough Draft
  • Created by
  • Terri D. Williams, High school English teacher,
    18 years of teaching, 10 years of learning
    technology

VITAL INFORMATION
  • Subject Literature and Composition (on-line
    course)
  • Topic The Odyssey, The Heros Journey
    (Humanities)
  • Grade Level Ninth/Tenth grades all levels of
    learners
  • Task Learners will prepare to create a
    multimedia scrapbook by completing a Session 1
    task.
  • Students will graphically represent important
    life events making use of one of two web tools
    (Interactive timeline, graphic map) offered at
    ReadWriteThink.com.

STANDARDS
  • NETS for Students 2007
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Students demonstrate creative thinking,
    construct knowledge, and develop innovative
    products and processes using technology.
    Students
  • apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas,
    products, or processes.
  • create original works as a means of personal or
    group expression.
  • use models and simulations to explore complex
    systems and issues.

Learners have analyzed The Odyssey for its
presentation of archetypes as well as its
delivery of the heros journey. Learners are to
make a connection to The Odyssey by categorizing
their life experiences with 18 designated
references to the heros journey in The Odyssey.
4
STANDARDS
  • Georgia/District
  • ELA9W2 The student demonstrates competence in a
    variety of genres. CC4.The student produces
    technical writing that reports technical
    information and/or conveys ideas clearly,
    logically, and purposefully to a particular
    audience
  • NCTE/IRA NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR THE ENGLISH
    LANGUAGE ARTS
  • 8. Students use a variety of technological and
    information resources (e.g., libraries,
    databases, computer networks, video) to gather
    and synthesize information and to create and
    communicate knowledge.

5
Established Goals
  • Learners will make personal connections to The
    Odyssey.
  • Learners will chronicle the details and
    discoveries of their life (like those encountered
    by Odyssey) and label their events according to
    the stages of the heros journey.
  • Learners will create a timeline or graphic map of
    their personal hero journey to be used as a guide
    to later create a PowerPoint scrapbook that will
    synthesize their understanding of the hero
    journey and demonstrate use of multimedia aids
    (pictures, graphics, symbols, design,
    poetry/lyrics, drawings, photo montages, etc.).
  • Learners will interpret and make connections
    through literary analysis, evaluation, and
    comparison.
  • Learners will organize material effectively.
  • Use available technology to plan and compose.

6
Understandings
  • Learners will successfully use a web tool to help
    create a timeline for themselves in which they
    view Odysseus as an archetype for today as his
    journey home to Ithaca represents our own
    adventures and discoveries.

7
Desired Results
  • Essential Question
  • Students are to reflect on important events in
    their lives How is my life like an odyssey?
  • Knowledge
  • DOK Analysis, Synthesis, Create, Design,
    Connect, Apply Concepts
  • Skills
  • Use of computer, PowerPoint, use of web tools,
    Understanding chronological order, understanding
    how to use an organizer for sequence of events,
    make connections between literature and life

8
Experience
  • Featured Resources
  • Graphic Map This online tool allows students to
    graphically map the high and low points related
    to a particular item or group of items, such as
    life events.
  • Interactive Timeline Using this online tool,
    students can generate descriptive timelines that
    can be plotted with their choice of units of
    measure (date, time, event, entry, or other).
  • _at_ReadWriteThink.com
  • Rationale
  • Learners get to use a web tool that engages them
    as they type in information and choose symbols
    for their life experiences ad draft those
    experience according to the heros journey.
    Students are analyzing as well as making
    comparisons. Students make evaluations as they
    decide which life event fits with the description
    of Odysseuss situations. This activity is
    engaging and calls for the learner to utilize
    higher order thinking skills.

Assessment
  • This assignment is the beginning of a larger
    assignment and is used as a motivational strategy
    to engage the learner to create using web tools
    on the Internet. The finished graphic organizer
    will be a blueprint to later create a scrapbook,
    so a formal grade would not be applied here and
    neither would a rubric be used. Such assessment
    would be applied to the larger project.
