Learners communicate in the Inupiat language using weather related vocabulary, numbers, and days of the week. They prepare a weather forecast and present it as if they were on a television news program. The forecast must be entirely in the Inupiat language.
Young scholars, in groups, write scripts and perform "live" weather reports from "actual" sites where extreme weather or natural disasters are occurring. They choose from hurricanes, blizzards, tornados, and earthquakes. They videotape their reports using props, etc.
Students, in groups, investigate and demonstrate the science behind the development and characteristics of winter storms by creating a weather report.
Sight words, word recognition, and flash card drills are the mode for teaching that is outlined here. To increase weather vocabulary and content specific word recognition, kids with special needs work through flash card drills. The teacher chooses several weather words out of a weather report, uses them to create flashcards, then drills the learners until they can identify them correctly. They then attempt to identify each word in context.
