|Looking for Helen
|This lesson will help students learn how to gather facts about Helen
Keller in books and on the internet. The teacher will share a summary
of Helen Keller and model how to look for the birth date, death date,
and key factors in that person's life. Giving a hand out with
information on Helen Keller, the students will then highlight five facts
about her on that paper.
|Through the data gathered in the prior lesson, the students will take
the information that they have gathered and fill in a web on Helen
Keller's life. (HelenKellerWEB.doc). From the facts gathered, the
students will begin writing a rough draft.
|Students will continue working on their Helen Keller research papers.
Once the rough draft is corrected and rewritten, the students will type
it on the computers. When they have finished typing that, using a
highlighter, they will take their printed version and highlight all errors
to correct at a later date. When time is available, students will correct
all errors, choose an appropriate Helen Keller icon and print their final
draft to be turned in. (RUBRIC INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON
