Instructional Ideas

  • Differentiate instruction by providing the blank chart to those that are able to complete all parts, and the partially completed chart to those that need assistance 
  • Provide additional literature for early finshers that showcase social expectations of different time periods
Classroom Considerations

  • This activity was written by a student teacher to use in a sixth grade class as part of a novel study for The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi
  • Schedule time to visit the school library or search on a mobile learning device to find out more about social expectations during different time periods 
  • The topic, When is it appropriate and admirable to defy authority?, stems from the idea of oppression from social expectations. Stress the importance of respect and the difference between disrespecting authority and standing up for a person's deserved rights so as not to enable bad behavior 
Pros

  • The lesson's purpose and steps are written thoroughly
  • Provides opportunities for extended learning  
Cons

  • The pages overlap, leaving titles on different pages, but does not interfere with the understanding
