12th Grade – Sample ELA Lesson Starter 1

Sample Student Outcome:Students collaboratively write a proposal to help solve a community problem in innovative ways.

EXAMPLE:After completing a literature unit on the American dream where students have readThe Great Gatsby,Death of a Salesman,andA Raisin in the Sun, they explore what it means to have access to an American dream. Students are asked to create non-profit organizations that would help to meet the needs of their community by helping a group of people to meet their American dream without duplicating current services offered in the community. Students conceive of organizations, formulate extensive grant proposals that help them vie for funding from the fictitious Society for the American Dream, and finally compete against each other for funding of up to $500,000. Students pitch their ideas and advocate for funding to the grant panel, comprised not of teachers, but of community representatives.

Sample Student Outcome:Frame, analyze and synthesize information in order to solve problems and answer questions.

EXAMPLE:In small groups, students conduct a technical needs analysis and create a plan for involving students in making technology decisions in the school. The process may include technical research, gathering student input from surveys, establishing a student advisory committee, using students to help provide tech support or other services to the school, evaluating cost/value ratios, and fundraising proposals to support their recommended strategies. These plans should be used in a presentation to the principal or the school board.
