For that reason alone, it would be significant to me.
Currently I am teaching 9th and 10th grade English in New York. I am hoping to post simple classroom strategies and share things that have worked, and sometimes not worked for me. Part of this lesson idea I have to give credit to my roommate Kim for.
But what lesson really is? This was an intro lesson for the play Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose but could probably be adapted to other books. I think the thing that worked well for this lesson was there were a lot of transitions.
Changing activities several times helps students with boredom and makes the period fly by. Two days in a row I had a student tell me he was amazed that the period was over already. The actual lesson can be found here. In the beginning of the lesson students were completing vocabulary words using the Frayer Model.
The words were not from the play, they were specific words that I saw on our midterm coming up in a couple of days that I knew students would struggle with and wanted to pre-teach. Students looked up the words, made their own definition, drew a picture, then used it in a sentence.
I have had hit and miss experiences with vocabulary instruction…which will be another post…. This took about ten-fifteen minutes, then we reviewed terms that had to do with the legal system that the students need to know which took about minutes. The play has twelve jurors obviously and a guard.
This worked out perfectly in one of my classes since it has 13 people in it! Each student was assigned a juror. In the beginning of the play the author extensively describes the personalities and some of the physical description of each juror. Then each student was instructed to visualize and draw their juror.
I normally tend to avoid dog and pony show artsy stuff in the classroom because usually students just fool around and nothing is learned.
Students were given a time limit. I find when doing anything creative or with drawing that students will goof off and tend to try to stretch out the time they are coloring to avoid other work. But I set a strict time limit of 25 minutes and told them that their work would be graded.
Students had trouble at first. The characterization mainly had descriptions of the personalities Ex: Twelve is a salesman, Two is quiet and cannot think for himself. I told students to use their imaginations and draw the juror how THEY thought he looked.
The room was silent, and I was surprised at how well they turned out!McVeigh was born on April 23, , in Lockport, New York, the middle child of William "Bill" McVeigh, who worked at a car radiator plant, and Mildred "Mickey" McVeigh.
Twelve angry men Juror 8 and 5 are the two jurors that I would be comparing in this article because they both belong to the professional working sector (juror 5 is a nurse while juror 8 is an architect).
