Students will complete a journal entry describing the role of one school authority figure at school as someone who helps others and makes rules to keep students safe. Using notes from previous interviews to guide their writing, students will recall at least one piece of information about the school authority figure’s responsibilities at school to make rules. In this lesson, students will draw their entries and include written or dictated information about the school authority figure.
In this lesson, students will learn about the topic of brown bears by asking questions and gaining information from a non-fiction, informational text. Students will listen for key details in the text and recall information that will be demonstrated through drawing and writing.
