Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback "The key to making your students' learning experiences worthwhile is to focus your planning on major instructional goals, phrased in terms of desired student outcomes—the knowledge, skills, attitudes, values, and dispositions that you want to develop in your students. Goals, not content coverage or learning processes, provide the rationale for curriculum and instruction.
The Game of Persuasion 1. Post the chart you created where students can see it see Preparation, Step 3.
Distribute sticky notes, and ask students to write their names on the notes. Call students up to the chart to place their notes in the column that expresses their opinion. After everyone has had a chance to put their name on the chart, look at the results and discuss how people have different views about various topics and are entitled to their opinions.
Give students a chance to share the reasons behind their choices. Once students have shared, explain that sometimes when you believe in something, you want others to believe in it also and you might try to get them to change their minds.
Ask students the following question: Explain to students that they are going to play a game that will help them understand how persuasive arguments work.
Follow these rules of the game: Have students get into their groups. Explain that sometimes when you play games the winner gets a reward and that at the end of this game the winning team will get the reward you have chosen see Preparation, Step 1.
Have each team choose a recorder, or designate a recorder for each team yourself. The recorder's job is to write down the team's arguments. Tell students that they must work together as a team for 15 to 20 minutes to come up with the best reason why the class should award their group the prize.
Their reasons can be serious or playful. Use a signal to let them know when to begin and when time is up.
Have students present their arguments. Students can either present as a group or choose one person to be their speaker. Have the judge decide on a winning group or ask students to vote for a group other than themselves that had a convincing argument. While students are working, there should be little interference from you.
This is a time for students to discover what they already know about persuasive arguments. Use the Observations and Notes handout as you listen in to groups and make notes about their arguments.
This will help you see what students know and also provide examples to point out during Session 2 see Step 4. Students are to find an example of a persuasive piece from the newspaper, television, radio, magazine, or billboards around town and be ready to report back to class during Session 2.
Provide a selection of magazines or newspapers with advertisements for students who may not have materials at home. For English-language learners ELLsit may be helpful to show examples of advertisements and articles in newspapers and magazines.Critical Media Literacy: Commercial Advertising.
By looking at advertising and mass media critically, students begin to understand how the media oppresses certain groups, convinces people to purchase certain products, and influences culture.
