4 Lesson Plans for Socratic Seminar

By on December 15, 2015

As we head into winter break, we wanted to share some great lessons that you might want to teach this week or use when you return after a long two week rest. If these lessons do not fit in your curriculum, consider other lessons we have developed this school year to teach reading skills.

Although each lesson has an identified grade level, LiteracyTA Members can add the lesson to their lesson plans and change the grade level, subject area, state literacy standards and skills. Each lesson follows LiteracyTA’s 5-Steps to Confidence Reading process and highlights a skill in an effort to support teachers as they implement more literacy standards into their curriculum. Enjoy!

Want to know the full power of your online TA? Register for a FREE 30 minute orientation. A LiteracyTA Team Member will walk you through our award winning tools and resources and show you how LiteracyTA makes teaching literacy standards easy and fun.

LiteracyTA University winter session is around the corner. Don't be left out in the cold. Register this week and go into break knowing you have something to look forward to when you return. We can't wait to see you on February 2nd.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.

Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and communicative tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate.
Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
Acquire and use accurately a range of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases sufficient for reading, writing, speaking, and listening at the college and career readiness level; demonstrate independence in gathering vocabulary knowledge when considering a word or phrase important to comprehension or expression.
