Objective

SWBAT use a written dialogue worksheet to create a Kerpoof story about the uniqueness of the USA.

Big Idea

Students will create a Kerpoof story about the uniqueness of the USA.

Narrative

1 minutes

Introduction

4 minutes

In this lesson, students build upon the previous lesson in which they wrote the dialogue of a Kerpoof narrative.  They had a choice of 3 different topic scenarios for their narrative (see attachment).  They will actually type their dialogue into the computer program, Kerpoof in this lesson and create a comic strip narrative.

Collaborative Partner Work

45 minutes

Students spent the majority of the class period working with their partner to designing their comic strip, selecting characters and setting, and typing their dialogue.  I circulated around the class providing feedback to students as they developed their stories. (Teacher will need to use a class email account for Kerpoof to approve student accounts in order that students may save their work.)

Closure

10 minutes

To close the lesson, I put the narratives of those students who had completed their Kerpoof stories on the Smartboard for the whole class to view and read.
