  • Lesson Plan for: iPhoto Lesson Plan By Polly Huppert

    Target Audience: Middle School

    Lesson Description: Students will demonstrate knowledge of each component of a slideshow including how to format, rearrange photos into

    an order, and add background music and additional components available using iPhoto. Evidence of student engagement

    in the lesson will be measured through the end product. Students in my classes often have many learning disabilities, are

    non-music readers and have a hard time working in a group. This lesson may take longer than I have planned, but typically

    I work towards one week units.

    Lesson Outcomes: Day 1: Students will take photos using a digital camera, either the schools or their own personal device, OR they will bring

    in photos from home on a disc or flash drive. The photos are about one topic and will need to tell a story. Discuss some

    ideas for stories and have students approve their choices with me. I will show students a couple of examples of slideshows

    that I have completed.

    Day 2: Students will transfer their photos from disc/flashdrive onto the school computer. Students can begin to choose

    which photos they will use in their story and begin to work on an order for them. They will need to choose a title for their

    slideshow, make sure their photos are appropriate and support their story, and decide which style of photo presentation

    to use. They will have time to explore their options today.

    Day 3: Students will continue this work along with putting photos in the final order.

    Day 4: Students will add any additional features to their slide show, including music.

    Day 5: Students will present their final projects to the class. Materials: Mac iPhoto, disc with their photos to upload (no internet access to download photos otherwise)

    Technology Used: Digital Camera, iTunes, iPhoto

    Learning Targets/Objectives: 1. Students will learn how to take photos on a mobile or personal device. 2. Students will learn how to load photos onto a disc and onto the school computer. 3. Students will demonstrate how their chosen photos support their topic for the slideshow.

    Subject: Students will use iPhoto to produce a slideshow centered around a topic of their choice. The slideshow will tell a narrative,

    or story.

  • Lesson Plan for: Wordle By Loree Campbell

    Target Audience: High School

    Lesson Description: This lesson will provide the student with the opportunity to learn about some typical Hispanic holidays, and to learn some vocabulary associated with each one. The student will pick 3 different articles to read about different holidays, and we will have a short discussion in class. Then the student will generate a list of 20 words associated with each of the holidays that they picked, (a total of 60 words). The student will translate the words into Spanish, using either real dictionaries, or virtual dictionaries. The student will be introduced to Moodle. They will enter their words, and print out their designs. The designs will be posted around the room, and other students will view them reading through the words in order to identify the holiday.

    Materials: Dictionaries, computer, printer, Wordle website, articles about several Hispanic holidays

    Technology Used:, computers, printer

    Learning Targets/Objectives: 1. Students will learn about several Hispanic holidays 2. Students will be exposed to vocabulary that is associated with several Hispanic holidays. 3. Students will be able to associate that vocabulary with the correct holiday
