Grade 4 ELA Module 2A, Unit 2, Lesson 12

LISTENING CLOSELY AND TAKING NOTES IN EXPERT GROUPS: COLONIAL TRADE PODCAST

In advance: This lesson focuses on students’ listening skills, and is dependent on technology so students can hear podcasts in their expert groups. Coordinate in advance to ensure success. Ideally students would do this lesson in a computer lab, but a handheld device would also work. If Internet technology is unavailable, then a teacher could transfer the podcasts to MP3s and use a CD or MP3 player or off-line computer to listen to the audio. If this technology is unavailable, consider modifying this lesson into a small group rotation. If no technology is available, consider skipping this lesson and substituting another lesson for SL.4.2 using a text related to colonial trades that can be read aloud to students
