The goal of this grant would be to create a highly engaging atmosphere that gets students to "buy into" the lesson in which they "dissected" a variety of sources that contained different text features. These text features will be "transplanted" into the correct patient in order to "save" the patient.

Goal

The goal of this grant would be to create a highly engaging atmosphere that gets students to "buy into" the lesson in which they "dissected" a variety of sources that contained different text features. These text features will be "transplanted" into the correct patient in order to "save" the patient.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will attend "medical school" to learn about non-fiction text features such as table of contents, headings, maps, photographs, illustrations, captions, labels, graphs, and tables. Students will then take what they have learned and apply it to the activity in order to "save" their patients. First students (now doctors) will review the patient files to find out what procedures they need to do. (i.e. Susan has complained of not knowing the meaning of some words she reads. What text feature does she need?) Next the students will "scrub in", grabbing the tools they need during "surgery". The tools include, a text source, scissors, glue stick, and pencil. Then the students will cut and glue the text feature they need in the box and write the name of the text feature on the medicine bottle. Finally, students will fill out a "post-op report" that describes the text feature transplant given, the purpose of the text feature, and how it will help the patient as they are reading.  

 

Benefits to my students

Creating an engaging atmosphere so that the students will "buy into" the lesson of operating on a "patient". We want to excite the students and have them feel more a part of the job and lesson that they are performing. In this lesson particularly, being dressed as doctors performing a fake surgery. We want to make the lessons more engaging.

These lab coats will also benefit the students through other lessons such as contraction, sentence, and vowel surgery. During these lessons students will be performing the same activity but with different skills. The lab coats will be used cross curricular in science experiments.

This grant will reach 125 students at our school in Math, ELA, Science, and Social Studies.

We are requesting 20 size 8 and 20 size 10 white lab coats for a total of 40 lab coats. Lines 1 and 2 are the individual unit prices for each size. Lines 3 and 4 are the totals for the additional 19 coats for each size.
