English CPT Full Plan: Creating a Children's Book!

English CPT Full Plan: Creating a Children's Book!

This creative CPT plan includes instructions, mind maps, customized rubric, and samples of previous Work. Students are asked to create a 10 page children's book based on the short story elements they learned throughout the semester. This is an opportunity to assess different writing, reading, comprehension, and literacy skills… Students are asked to hand in a hardcopy, as well as present the book to reading buddies ( students of a younger age. This can be arranged by taking a class to a feeder school nearby to present their books]. This interactive activity allows teachers to view the student progress not only in relation to reading and writing, but also in the understanding of audience and purpose – this is why I thought reading to younger kids is a great observation opportunity for teachers to test how engaging their reading [tone, diction] and stories really are in practicality and with real life children. This activity is assessed through all learning categories (K, T,C, A) and the following learning specific strands: Listening to Understand 1.1 Purpose 1.5 Demonstrating Understanding of Content 1.7 Extending Understanding of Texts Speaking to Communicate 2.1 Purpose 2.2 Interpersonal Speaking Strategies 2.3 Clarity and Coherence 2.4 Diction and Devices 2.5 Vocal Strategies 2.6 Non-Verbal Cues 2.7Audio-Visual Aids 3.
