Students will call out the names of as many heroes they


know. I will have 3 students share which was their
favorite hero & explain the reason(s) in Spanish. The
teacher will provide a sentence frame (Mi heroe favorito
esporque) on how students should start their response
for students who need that extra support.
The teacher will then read and point to the daily lesson
objectives that will be posted in the classroom.
The teacher will show the students slide 2 from the
teacher power point. The teachers recorded voice will
read the two questions off of the power point: What is a
hero? What does a hero do? The teacher will read the
examples (A hero is brave. A hero helps others.) & point
to the matching pictures.
The teacher will have 2-3 student volunteers share with
the whole class two more responses of what is a hero?
What does a hero do? While the teacher writes the student
responses on the white board.
The students will each have a copy of the student
worksheets (What is a hero? What does a hero do?) That
follow the power point teacher presentation.
Students will work in small interactive groups (composed
of 4 students) and exchange ideas and opinions orally and
in writing. In their groups, after discussing their answers
to what is a hero? What does a hero do? Students will
write their responses on their worksheets.

their responses orally with the whole class. The teacher
will write the student responses on the white board.

The rest of the students will then show a thumbs up/down


to the student that is sharing a response to signal
agreement or disagreement.

The teacher will show the students slide 3 from the


teacher power point where it compares and contrasts
heroes with non-heroes. The teacher will read the
questions from the power point teacher presentation what
is a hero? And what is a hero NOT? And read the example
response: A hero perseveres. A hero is NOT lazy. The
teacher will also point to the illustrations on the power
point for each response.

The teacher will have the students see their responses they
created earlier on what is a hero? The teacher will have
three student volunteers share some of their answers from
that list. The teacher will then ask the students that they
must find the opposite words to find the contrast. The
teacher will model: A hero perseveres. A hero is NOT
lazy. A hero is caring. A hero is NOT uncaring. A hero is
strong. A hero is NOT weak.

student from each group will share and explain the poster.
