Dr. Mengele: Angel of Death (Cloze and Context Clue Activity) (Videos and Key Included!!)

Dr. Mengele: Angel of Death (Cloze and Context Clue Activity) (Videos and Key Included!!)

Context Clues and Word Elimination (Cloze Method) strategies have been proven to enhance the comprehension of higher level texts. Due to this finding, I have used these methods with my middle school students. First, I copied and pasted the entire article, *The Road to the Nuremberg Trials*, onto a Google Doc. Then, I chunked each paragraph or separate passage within the text. Secondly, I placed engaging visuals that directly aligned with the text within the text. Thirdly, I read through the passages again to denote Tier 2 and 3 terms that I knew that my students may not know and eliminated them. I placed a line or blank line in its place. I checked to ensure that there were definitive words/phrases around the missing word that could verify or prove the term's meaning within its context. Fourthly, I created multiple choice terms: Three (3) are icorrect and one (1) was the missing term. Fifth, I added an EXPLANATION box where the students are to explain why their answer choice was correct using EVIDENCE from the text. ** NOTE: During the process, the students must go through the following steps: 1. Read the passage. 2. Read the terms. 3. Think about what word would LOGICALLY fit in the missing blank based upon the sentences and terms within the text. 4. Indicate your word choice. 5. Turn and Talk with your group members to explain your thinking. 6. Explain your findings in COMPLETE SENTENCES using EVIDENCE FROM the TEXT to JUSTIFY your answer choice. ** This process is first scaffolded by me using Think-Alouds and annotations several times as I gradually release the level of responsibilityy to the students. **Activity Key** For demonstration purposes, I have included a key for the activity. The responses are based on the proficient and advanced levels (3 and 4). Please feel free to modify it as you deem necessary. ** Bonus Video** I have included two videos based upon the **Context Clue and Cloze methods.** ** Best Practices: High School Reading Strategies Instructor: Mary Katherine Keeting and Robert Seebring** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Y00Oe-cODw&t=82s **Cloze Procedure by Andrea Powell** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz8v7bffUTY&t=4s Note: The documents are in PDF. Please feel free to use DocHub or other program to allow you and your students to write in the activity using a computer. Image Resource: Information Resource: https://goo.gl/eAVEhD Enjoy!

Memory building game - Property tycoon

Memory building game - Property tycoon

During this task students will memorise designs and communicate effectively with team mates to reconstruct buildings as best they can. Students need to record how much they spend to construct each building and keep an eye on if this will be profitable or not. Included are images of buildings that I printed out and put in the hallway for the architects to spend 10 seconds looking at each time. Also the profit and loss sheet is set up and ready to go. This task has worked well across KS3 and KS4 and students show a great level of engagement.

Your children may spot an owl, a robin, a fox, a hedgehog, a rabbit and two squirrels amongst the moonlit branches of this wintry wood.
