Random Shakespearean Insult Generator Lesson
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson integrates coding and computer science into English Language Arts for the purpose of fostering appreciation of Shakespearean wit and language and to provide students exposure to coding. Students first choose words that carry insulting connotations from a Shakespearean play and then create a program that randomly generates insults based upon those found words. Swift Playgrounds, Scratch, or Raspberry Pi are recommended resources for creating this project, and links to projects are provided for each of these platforms. Sample code and directions are provided. Students who are beginning to learn coding may complete the code while more advanced individuals may modify the program or create their own.

Sentence- Phrase-Word- Understanding Theme & Big Ideas
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This is an activity that includes student's own ideas and beliefs about the central ideas and important parts of the text. Students will also do a bit of writing to support their opinions. This activity gets at the heart of a text. I see this as introductory to deeper dives into theme. This lesson could be structured to be online or face to face. This is written as a class activity but an online discussion could easily be created after students had followed the protocol a few times and seen the discussion that results. This could easily work in many classrooms through high school.

Rating
0.0 stars

eview the text we read in class, "Cronus".In this discussion, we will explore theme. A theme is a significant idea or lesson conveyed in a text. It is a message the author conveys through important details or events. Some themes are so universal that they apply to people across time and cultures.For example, a relevant theme from "Cronus" is: Parent-Child Relationships.Using that, here is a thematic statement: A mother will put her love for her children above every other relationship.Note that a thematic statement is a full sentence that conveys a complete idea. In this discussion, you will be writing thematic statements.

Using Details to Determine Theme
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Students often struggle to find theme in literature--one that is not a bumper sticker, a "moral to the story," or anything that could be applied to more than one story.  Understanding what theme is, an implicit argument the author is making, is the first step.  Then it gets more complicated as they realize that there are wrong answers (the ones that don't make sense with the story), there are undeveloped answers (ones that don't get far enough past motif but are on the right track), and there are many possible correct answers that can be explained and supported with the text. This activity uses the Generate-Sort-Connect-Elaborate strategy in small groups to help students focus on the details of the story and how they contribute to the overall point of the story.  It can be used with any piece of literature you deem appropriate for your students.
