The last two lessons for the interactive notebook focused on writing skills. I started with writing summaries because their core teacher requested that I work on those skills with the students. Writing clear and concise summaries is associated with the writing Standard 3 (CCSS: W.9-10.4). For this lesson, I gave them a summary template to follow and a graphic organizer on how to write a summary, which they placed in their books. At the end of the lesson I wanted them to write a summary of their own using a Ted Talk; therefore, the objective was for the students to write an effective summary of the Ted Talk using their graphic organizer with 85% accuracy.
Strategy Instruction and Rationale: The students will be given an expository text to read on their own. The students will also be given a power mapping graphic organizer to use while reading their text. The students will fill out the power-mapping organizer with the main idea, the subtopics and then the supporting ideas. The students will have to use phrases from the text to make sure that they are utilizing the correct vocabulary.

• Personal response and application: How has this assignment helped you? What lessons have been learned? How will you apply this to your role as an educational leader? The reflective statements may draw on previous experiences or future plans to use the information.
Given this understanding such activities should be made components of the school curriculum to facilitate creative thinking among students. Essay writing, quizzes, elocution competitions and debates should also be actively promoted in schools. In preparing for elocution competitions and debates, students are compelled to do their own research on the topics they have to present – invariably, this will enhance their quest for information (knowledge), and contribute to improving their reasoning and critical thinking skills.
When most students are done Zoharit checks their answers and adds questions on the board with the help of students. Zoharit writes an additional sentence on board and asks the students to write 3 questions that their answers can be found in the sentence (beginning with when, where and how many).

The last lesson on character development was on direct and indirect characters. The objectives for the students was to apply their understanding of direct and indirect characterization by filling out a direct/indirect worksheet with 80% accuracy. My instructional input started with discussing schema and inferencing and the importance of both in order to determine what some character traits might be. I then showed them a powerpoint that went over indirect and direct characterization and gave them some examples. As I was discussing, I supplied them with a direct/indirect characterization graphic organizer to place in their notebook.

Modifications: English Language Learners (ELL) Some of the main characteristics include, but are not limited to: • Copy and repeat oral instructions, questions and modeled responses • Rely on visuals and diagrams to understand and communicate • Rely on first language • Require
Then I build on that knowledge by working with the class on document A (see instructional material 1.1) then let the class work on the rest of the documents in pairs. Through this method student are shown the material, and the work is modeled for them giving students a better understanding of how to read the documents (Bruner). Allowing students to work in pairs allows for peer learning allowing students to work together, and for students who are accelerated in the class to help those who are struggling with the material (Dewey). This also me to walk around the room, and help groups who are struggling allowing for easier monitoring of progress towards the learning target. Lesson 2 starts by comparing, and contrasting FDR’s handling of Japanese Americans, and how Trump wants to handle immigrants (see instructional material 2.1).
The class would then come back together as a whole, with each group discussing the grade they gave the response and why. Mrs. Lanza would then reveal the grade she gave the response, hoping that each group fell within one point value and had relatively the same constructive criticism to give. Following this, students worked on independent writing assignments on MyAccess. Accommodations/Modifications: While working on evaluating student responses to the PRCs, Mrs. Lanza utilized the document camera to project the selected responses onto the whiteboard. In addition to visually seeing the responses, Mrs. Lanza also read the responses orally to ensure that students who had trouble seeing the responses could hear them instead.
