Infographic Lesson Plan: Day 2

Summative Assessment: Students will create a research infographic related to their novel.
This infographic will become chapter three in students companion books for their personal
choice novel. The entire companion book assessment is composed of 4-5 chapters including
the infographic, a piece of fan fiction, and 2-3 literary analysis essays. It spans the entire
marking period.

Objectives:
1. Students will be able to collect research related to a topic from their personal reading
novel that they are using for their companion book projects.
2. Students will be able to design an infographic to creatively illustrate their learning using
sophisticated organizational structures in a multimodal text.

Materials: All docs/slides should be posted to Google Classroom, so students are able to view
any documents for help, reminders, and examples.

Hook:
1. Have students analyze an example infographic with their table groups. Ask students to
create a list of the types of information presented and how the infographic presents that
piece of information. Ex. data, charts, pictures, text blurbs Students can make a
T-Chart with table groups. We will share out as a group to see what students come up
with.
a. Example infographics to use:
i. Example 1
ii. Example 2
iii. Example 3
iv. Example 4
b. Once groups review the examples, share out and create a class T-Chart to
review the different characteristics of infographics. Stress how important the
images and visuals are compared to the written text.
2. Use the Google Slides (from the larger Unit 2 slides presentation) to review infographics.
Slide 2: Remind students they will be making an infographic about a topic somehow
(even loosely) connected to their novel.
i. Show the teacher examples from our whole-class novel, Al Capone Does
My Shirts.
1. Students should notice the range of topics you can pull out from
an individual text as long as it ties back to their novel in some way.
3. Inform students that today they will spend most of class independently working on their
research infographics.

Prior knowledge: Students have already used Canva.com to create a book cover for their
companion book project. They already know how to use it to some extent. Students were
introduced to this assignment the day before and today are beginning/continuing work on their
infographic. Day 1 of this lesson can be found here.

Independent Work Time:


1. **Quickly review all instructions for how to collect information & how to find infographic
layouts on Canva.com before allowing students to continue doing their work.**
2. Tell students that before they are to move on to Canva, they must show the instructor
their collected notes! Keep a simple log to record which students have or have not
shown their collected research.
3. Students should first begin doing research on a topic. Some students may struggle
deciding on a topic. Walk around the room assisting students who need help deciding on
a topic.
4. As students work, check in to make sure they are collecting sources. Remind the whole
class of this throughout work time.
5. Ask students to show you their notes before they go to Canva.com. Remind students
that they should not be on Canva.com unless all of their notes are collected. Check in
with students who seem to be getting ahead of themselves.
6. Allow students to continue to work freely, checking in as needed. As students finish, they
need to download/save the file as a .pdf or image file to their Chromebooks in order to
turn them in.

Wrap Up: Students will not complete their project within this class period. Remind them to save
their progress and to begin putting their materials away for the day.
