6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

PUT ON BOARD : noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, adverbs, prepositions, conjunction, interjections

Have students/class come up with example/definition of vocabulary word.

1.Who listens to music? Katy Perry? What do you hear? What artist do you know that may use music to get different points across? English and music= Figurative Language and Poetic Devices
2.Play Katy Perry "Firework"
3.Hand out work sheet and explain lesson to students.

B. Development-

1.Identify label and explain the type of figurative language or poetic device used in the song lyrics.
2.Give students examples, go over first few lines.

C. Practice-

1.Students will work on Firework worksheet independently.
2.I will monitor students progress with informal assessments.

D. Independent Practice-

1.After worksheet is completed, I will pair students up and go over each verse to make sure everyone understands the lesson given.
If there are struggling learners I would go back to the basic parts of speech and explain those 8 parts of speech.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.Extra time for those who need it
2.Shorter amount of questions given on the actual formal test assessment

F. Checking for understanding-

1.I would keep the students in pairs and assign each group a chunk of "exit slip" problems to complete before class ends.

G. Closure-

1.After students complete firework worksheet, we will go over it as a class and grade ourselves individually.
2.I will then pair students and assign them a section of grammar test to be completed before leaving the classroom.
7. Evaluation-
After today's lesson I would continue with the parts of speech lesson and keep relating it to music to keep the students interested. I would have the students pair up and make their own lyrics for a parts of speech rap that they will present at the end of the week to the class. They will be able to use the vocabulary card for help with definitions of the 8 words.
8. Teacher Reflection-
My field teacher said that I had a great lesson, but tried to do too much with the students in such little time. She said I needed to take more time in the introduction, because I made assumptions of her students thinking most would know the 8 parts of speech, so it got the lesson a bit out of order.
