LESSON OBJECTIVE: Native American Tribes (First Nations) & culture
♦♦describe how could you use each of the three instructional strategies to meet the educational objectives of this particular lesson?
- CONTEXTUALIZATION w/VISUALS & REALIA
- I would use the contextualization of visuals by having pictures, video clips, and audio pertaining to Native Americans to assist students with their understanding of who Native Americans are and their cultural practices.
I would use a paint program on a computer to have the students create/paint of the things they saw in the pictures and video slips. (acorn, teepee, bow & arrow, woven basket, native clothes and etc) I would also present a PowerPoint presentation on First Nations to re-present and review the content discussed in class.
3. METACOGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT
I would have students get into groups of 3 to create their own PowerPoint presentation. This would cause the students to need to discuss with their peers the content they just learned, and then decide on what key details/facts they want to include in their presentation. It also gives them another way to reflect or self evaluate their work later.
