This week, we covered 5.RL.7, which reads: Analyze how visual and multimedia elements contribute to the meaning, tone, or beauty of a text (e.g., graphic novel, multimedia presentation of fiction, folktale, myth, or poem). ***[Note: The first time I read this, I was like, “ummm, what?!”]
Thank the heavens I put in the extra work to make these teaching notes because these standards can be tricky.
I had already planned to read my students this fabulous poetry book about Paul Revere for social studies…
…and I could also use it to introduce this standard for English Language Arts. Jackpot!
So, for a quick and easy lesson, I posted the standard on our anchor chart during social studies.
I then pulled a few of my lower readers to view the video independently or in a small group using our laptops and my teacher computer.
Here a few excerpts from my student’s assessments on comparing a text to both pictures and a video:
All of the above assessments, video links, photos, teaching notes AND MORE can be found in my 5th Grade ELA/Literacy Assessments and Teaching Notes! Click HERE or the button below to check them out!
I would love to hear your ideas for teaching RL.7!
