Multimedia Lesson Plan - Podcast

Podcast for Multimedia Lesson Plan

Intended Audience
3rd Grade Students

Learning Objectives

  • The student will be able to describe characters in a story (e.g., their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events
  • The student will be able to distinguish their own point of view from that of the narrator or those of the characters.
  • The student will be able to explain how specific aspects of a text's illustrations contribute to what is conveyed by the words in a story (e.g., create mood, emphasize aspects of a character or setting)
In 3rd grade students have to be able to describe characters and how their points of view are different. They also have to be able to distinguish how their own point of view is different than that of the characters. I used the picture book Voices in the Park to help students understand this concept. There are 4 different characters that all see the same park in very different ways. Having students listen to an audio recording of the text first allows the students to focus on the voices. Also, having this audio recording available for students allows them to go back and listen to the story later if they are working on an assignment and need to re-listen to the story. It also would allow for students with lower reading levels to work on the skill of comparing the characters without someone there to read the story for them.
