Introduction to Romaniticism
1 Introduction and Anticipatory set (hook)
Using Edmodo and the prompt of "What characterizes Romanticism" students will share the knowledge they have before we start the unit. This will enable scaffolding as needed and a better idea of how much time the next lesson will need.
2 Introduction- Anticipatory set
Teacher will use a power point to share several images of art popular during the early Romantic period. This power point will be interspersed with historical information. Students will use their Characteristics of Romanticism handout to analyze the text that are shared on the Power Point.
Students will be asked several questions to promote analysis.
1) What are the elements of Romanticism in art.
2) What are some Characteristics of Romanticism.
3 Instructional Activities
Students will receive two handouts. The poem by William Wordsworth The Tables Turned and the TPA-FASTT. Using the TPA-FASTT students will analyze the text. Students will break into small groups of no more then 4. Students will work for about 10 minutes.
Differentiation element: Students can chose to work alone instead of groups.
4 Wrap Up Synthesis/closure
The class will join back to the whole group. Using the Whiteboard Pro Application with a copy of the Poem projected students will share the analysis they did in their groups. Students will move line by line identifying the Characteristics of Romanticism.
5 Assessment (Formative)
Students will once again sign back into Edmoto and list the elements of Romanticism they learned in todays lesson. This will be an exit ticket activity as well as an assessment to verify understanding has taken place.
Key Standards Supported
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
Analyze the impact of the author’s choices regarding how to develop and relate elements of a story or drama (e.g., where a story is set, how the action is ordered, how the characters are introduced and developed).
