Figure It Out: A Reading Comprehension Lesson

Figure It Out: A Reading Comprehension Lesson | To Kill a Mockingbird |

I’m a big fan of structuring lessons so that students can figure things out on their own. In the education world, what I am talking about is sometimes called the constructionist approach, sometimes called inquiry-based learning, sometimes called—well, whatever the name, lessons learned this way usually stick—and in the act of discovery, students are empowered as learners.

Here’s an example of what I mean: a reading comprehension lesson involving allusions—in this case, in the context of one of my favorite books, To Kill a Mockingbird. The goal is to show students how allusions enrich the meaning of a text—how to spot them, how to decode them, how to make meaning of what is frequently an analogy.

Get It  Free -To Kill A Mockingbird Audio Book | To Kill a Mockingbird |

The "To Kill a Mockingbird" audiobook is actually the timeless anti-racism novel, the drama about the Great Depression, a stylish tale about the South customs as well as customs. The plot centers about a attorney which defends a black man falsely accused with raping a lady which is not of colour. The account displayed throughout To Kill a Mockingbird mp3 audiobook puts within great contrast the thinking as well as irrationality of adults compared to children (the two small kids of the attorney being the people whose eyes view the events). This is much more than a basic narrative - it is the entertaining display of bias, hypocrisy as well as abuse manifesting in the Southern during the '30s.

I Scooped this site as I thought it was an interesting way of incorporating ICT into the English Classroom. If students in my English classroom were studying a text such as To Kill A Mockingbird, I would like to know their opinions on the different forms of communicating such a text. I would share this resource with them, and then ask: How did hearing the characters voices in the audio recording, change the way you had firstly imagined the character to appear? What form of communication do you find most engaging? This would then help to enhance my future teaching practice for this particular class by observing how students best take in information.
