Lesson Objectives & Supports

Content objectives:
 Students will be able to work in pairs to analyze the central message of the
 Students will be able to use quotations from the book to support their
understanding of the text.
 Students will be able to connect the informational text to the literary text.
Literacy objectives:
 Students will be able to read a text and explain/define the topic of the text.
 Students will be able to work independently and collaborate.

Academic vocabulary:
Tier II (General) analyze, define, connect
Tier III (Domain specific) characters, central message

Literacy strategies and Integrated ELD Strategies (SDAIE, Specially Designed

Academic Instruction in English):
 Name and provide a brief (1 sentence) description of each literacy and SDAIE
strategy used in the lesson.
 Be sure to include a reference (author, date) for each strategy.
Concept/Definition Mapping (Buehl, 2017): Students will read the article on Jim Crow Laws
and then fill in the concept/definition map according to the new information they have
learned. The purpose of this map is for students to analyze the concept that is being
introduced, as well as an additional way for students to take notes about a topic. Students
will fill out each section of the box, but for the examples, they will look at various sections
of the book To Kill A Mockingbird (Lee) and find a quote that exemplifies Jim Crow Laws,
(i.e. the separate black church Calpurnia attends).

Assessment: How will you know if students met your objectives?

For EACH content and literacy objective listed above, indicate how you will evaluate if
students met the objective. These assessments might include formal and informal
assessments, individual or group assessments, oral or written assessments, in- and out-of-
class assessments, etc.
I will know if students met my objectives if they are able to properly describe Jim Crow
Laws and the effects they had on characters in TKAM. Students will display this knowledge
in the “example” section of the concept/definition map. I will be able to determine if they
met the objective if they made proper use of the quotation from the primary text to support
their claims.

Indicate how you could adapt this lesson for each of the following groups of students.
Adaptations might include additional literacy supports or scaffolds, texts written at multiple

English learners: Emergent bilingual students will read the article and find
examples from the article and write about them. At a later date, emergent bilingual
students will make the connection to the text, and then write about it.
Striving readers: Striving readers will have the opportunity to read the passage
aloud with a partner. The striving reader will be allotted extra time to complete the
assignment and only has to find 1-2 examples from the primary text.
Students with special needs: Students with special needs will be able to watch a
video on Jim Crow Laws and will be able to verbally speak their answers to a
partner who will write.
Advanced students: Advanced students will investigate a specific caveat of Jim
Crow Laws seen in the primary text, and understand the implications that law had
on communities.
