Obviously vocabulary is an important factor in English. I think is a great exercise for students of all age to learn the roots and meanings of words. It’s great how it explains how to pronounce the words and gives them examples in a sentence and in the end it allows them to try to complete a puzzle to see how much they learned from the lesson. I think they can have fun and learn at the same time. I will assess them by making sure they understand the activities and also assess them on how well they are doing. Some may need a little more work on vocabulary, and this exercise will really show it.

This activity allows students to get a better idea of the English language. They will examine whether the sentence is a fused sentence or a comma splice. The students will read the definitions and examples then move on the look at example sentence. They will complete a number of exercises and when they are wrong, it will allow them to see they reason they are wrong and also hear an animal noise,

This activity is a great overview for the beginning of a journalism elective or when I begin to teach persuasive essay writing and research papers. It lists the elements of a story that people would consider newsworthy or that draws people in to read. It also gives examples of how to identify these elements of a story so that they can be written out properly.

This Smartboard lesson is on figurative language for use in reading and writing. Texts are filled with literary devices such as metaphor, alliteration, simile, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, and personification to help describe language in another way. The lesson plan also includes fill in the blank sentences to show use of figurative language but I could also ask students to identify these literary devices in other texts that we are reading in class in order to check for understanding.

This lesson is for grades 7-9. It is focused on teaching students how to use a thesaurus. This is a good introduction activity that can be expanded upon by explaining the limitations and uses of a thesaurus. I could assess understanding of this lesson by having students apply what they have learned, using a thesaurus for a written assignment.

This lesson focuses on writing under pressure with a time limit. Students are given information and a prompt and then write. Since this is practice for timed writing exercises in the students' future, I would assess through discussion and review of the writing. Students could also do a reflective writing assignment incorporating how they felt, what they feel they need to improve, and any concerns they want to address.

This lesson is for English classes and was created for middle school (grades 7-9). The lesson teaches about pronouns their relationship with nouns and what special features make a personal pronoun. The lesson allows students to study how to correctly use pronouns. Assessments can be given to see how well students understood the lesson. Stundent understanding can be assessed thorugh their writing and placement of the nouns.

This lesson was created for high school students and is discusses the principles of giving a speech. I would use this lesson and then asssin a project where students would have to give a speech on what they've researched. Their speech would be a final assessment that would demonstrate what they learned from the lesson. This lesson is also available in Spanish and French so it would be great for ESL students and would help them become more comident in their speech.

This is a video of a smartboard program used to create complete sentence. This is a great teaching device to help students learn grammar in a fun and interactive way. It lets students listen, look, and actively learn about grammar. There is instant assessment because the board tells the student if they are right or wrong.

Here is a lesson plan using a smartboard to teach The Iliad. Characters will be visualized on the board and students will be able to drag them to the right category they are in. This is good because there are many confusing and exotic names found in the book.

I think this is a wonderful site that shares smart board lessons of each study are. I loved the two smart board lessons under the Literacy part which are "Homophones and Homographs" and "Speaking and Listening". The lessons are both for young learners. The speaking and listening lesson is more for the elementary level students.In the homophone lesson, the students guess the meanings of the terms, learn the meanings, see the examples and then create some examples of their own. I think the learning stages are well thought and organized for students to learn by discovering. In the other one, the lesson involves more drawing and creativity with the usage of smart board. So they can actually come up to the board and write and play with the board. It also involves student interaction.
