Students and teachers employ think-aloud strategies as they read literature, compose poems, and create artwork related to the theme of peace. This unit is designed for collaborative teaching among classroom, art, and technology teachers, and school librarians. A single educator can also teach this unit. During nine and a half hours, plus publishing time, students will: practice think-aloud strategies when reading literature; apply think-aloud strategies when listening to poetry and viewing art; compile questions and personal responses to literature using a graphic organizer; study the symbol of the dove via the Internet and re-envision Picasso's dove in their own artwork; brainstorm and compose a shared classroom poem about peace; use technology tools in the prewriting, composition, revision, and publication stages of the writing process; and compose individual poems inspired by their own artwork. The instructional plan, lists of resources, student assessment/reflection activities, and a list of National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) Standards addressed in the lesson are included. A graphic organizer; a peace poem template; a sample peace web and poem; a think-aloud monitoring sheet; teacher modeling sheet; and a rubric for Picasso Peace Dove Poem are attached. (PM)
