Lesson Plan

Charge of the Light Brigade: Can a Poem Tell a Story?:

Students will be studying the narrative poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade” and discussing how a “poem can tell a story.” Students will focus upon citing evidence to support central ideas found in the poem and then using those inferences to complete a comparison/contrast essay. Part of this study will include watching a 4 minute clip from the movie The Blind Side in which Tim McGraw’s character explains the meaning of the poem in terms of a football game between rivals LSU and Ole Miss. Students will be asked to compare and contrast the poem’s meaning in terms of battle in war and battle on the football field, determine how these two situations are similar and different, and finally be asked to explain if the football analogy was helpful in aiding the understanding of the story the poem tells.

Using Creative Movement in a Classroom Environment:

This twelve-minute video from Teaching Channel features dance teacher Brooke Charlebois demonstrating how to use cooperative groups to structure the expression of creative movement and choreographic forms to convey global issues. The video briefly focuses on how embedded dance allows students to demonstrate their understanding of concepts in math, science, history, geography and language.
