Lesson: Bio Poem Summarizing Characters/ People
State Standard: . 3.LT-EF.14
Objective:Identify how a character feels and acts in support of a story or passage by summarizing using biopoem.
Do-Now: Students complete a biopoem about themselves. This can also be done as an icebreaker in the beginning of the year.
Students will be able to identify feelings and opinions based on a biography or autobiography of a person.
Opening: Are there any characters in your book you really feel like you connect with? Do you think you connect with them on the surface? Have you ever read a book and read the book to really get to know the character or focus only your attention on the character. If we read a story and just focus on the character we can actually really get to know the character, we can visualize and pretend that they are like a person.
Today we are going to read a story and truly focus on the character. Make a list of things you are going to look for: we are going to look at how a character feels, acts, what kind of personality they have, what they like, dislike, who they are. In doing this we are establishing a connection with the character. We are allowing ourselves to walk in a character shoes. Today we will spend time walking in a character shoes by exploring our characters feelings through poetry.
Guided Practice: Model the biopoem make a chart paper list or project the same biopoem. Complete a read aloud story about a character. Fill out the biopoem with the character in mind. Show students how you are deriving answers for the biopoems.
You can also do this with non-fiction text and incorporate biographies.
Students compelte a bio poem based on their character or individual they are studying.
Closing: Read your biopoem. Create a picture and caption for your biopoem.
