"You Be The Teacher" Blended Learning Unit


As a middle school English Language Arts teacher I look for creative ways to assess student learning.   I believe that if a student can teach a concept to his/her fellow students then I know that they have mastered that new knowledge.  In this blended learning unit students will become the teacher and teach a literary device using a presentation tool (Screencast-O-matic).  This assignment focuses on an 8th grade class who are learning about literary devices and their impact on literature.

Learning Targets: 
Students will be able to analyze why an author uses literary devices in their work.
Students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of literary devices.
Students will be able to Integrate multimedia and visual displays into presentations to clarify information, strengthen claims and evidence, and add interest.
