Reflection: ELL Students Figurative Language with Casey at Bat - Section 2: Teaching Strategy

 

I used the picture in the cue set to build more background knowledge regarding baseball before teaching the lesson.  I realized that you have to understand that 3 outs means the players switch and that 3 strikes means that you're out in order to fully comprehend the poem.  I also paused every few stanzas to summarize and discuss what happened with the class during the first read.  This ensured that all scholars had access to the text and that everyone understood what the poem meant.

Big Idea: Other versions of a popular story are so fun to read aloud. In this case we use a different story to compare versions and explore how an author uses figurative language in their books. Students will begin to practice slowing down for figurative language.
