Preview Day

Lesson: 7

Preview Day


Educational Objective:

Students will demonstrate their understanding of implementing the elements of storytelling by performing a preview of their story as well as providing peer feedback.


Hook: Before students enter pull the chairs into a semi-circle as well as have numbers 1-9 written on the board and have students’ sign up for a preview time and pull out paper to give peer feedback for each other’s stories. Also provide brief information about the rubric and how you will be grading their final.


Step 1: Practice/Assessment – Remind students that we are going to preview half of the class’ stories today. Assign students to write down feedback on a piece of paper that they can pass to the student who performed after each performance. Allow time at the end of each performance to give students the opportunity to give notes, after the students give peer notes take time to give verbal feedback to each student so they can know what is expected of them and what they need to improve on.
