Lesson: Autobiographical Incident (ELA Grades 7-8) : Lesson: Autobiographical Incident (ELA Grades 7-8) Joanne Miller 10/22/2017 Objective: : Students will write an autobiographical incident that shows, rather than tells, their emotions in a specific experience or incident in their own lives. Objective: Introduction:: Two sentences written on the board: “I was angry and upset.” “I felt my lower lip quiver as tears started to run down my cheeks.” Have a brief class discussion about the differences in the sentence that shows emotion from the sentence that tells emotion. Introduction: Demonstration:: Each student will receive a copy of the short story “Fish Cheeks” by Amy Tan. After first reading as a class, story will be projected on front board. Teacher will model finding examples of how the author shows, rather than tells, her emotions (first two paragraphs). Students will underline these on their paper. Ex: “I prayed for a ….slim new American nose.” Students will notate which emotion is shown. Demonstration: Guided Practice:: Teacher will read aloud the next paragraph and ask students for examples. For each example, discuss whether the author shows, rather than tells, her emotions. Have students underline the example and notate which emotion is shown. Continue with two more paragraphs as a whole class. Guided Practice: Apply the Skill:: Students will work in pairs to read the final three paragraphs of “Fish Cheeks.” Students will underline examples and notate which emotion is shown. Student partners should be in agreement for each example. After sufficient time, discuss as a class. Apply the Skill: Apply the Skill (continued):: Working individually, students will write a minimum of two sentences to show, rather than tell, how someone expresses emotions. Sentences will be shared with a partner, who must determine which emotion is shown. Class discussion with students sharing their sentences. Apply the Skill (continued): Assessment:: Each student will write a brief autobiographical incident that shows, rather than tells, the emotions that were felt. (Students should have a minimum of 3 examples.) Teacher will provide a few prompts for students needing assistance: A trip to the dentist/doctor A fight with a sibling A special birthday or holiday memory Winning an award A special trip or vacation Assessment:
