Using a Timeline

Using a Timeline



Students will be able to ...

  • identify a timeline and describe its purpose
  • create a timeline from a reading



Day One:

1. Do Now (In Reading Workshop) List all the things you have done today.

2. Mini-lesson on timelines

3. Students will turn their do nows into time lines

4. Students will read a story and annotate the text, marking what they think are major events in the story. I will tell them that that need to be careful because the events are written about in the order they happened and some of the events aren't included with specific dates - some completely without dates, others with dates implied or inferred.

5. After reading, students will create a time line of the major events in the story.

Homework - Create a time line of your life.


Day Two:

1. If students have not finished their time line, they will do so.

2. On the overhead projector, we will re-create the time line together as a class. While eliciting their responses, I will ask students to point out where in the text they will find the event.

3. If there is time ... students will have five minutes to study the time line and we will take a short mock-quiz. After doing the quiz, we will discuss using timelines to help understand and comprehend text - and as a study aid for their other classes and tests.

Homework - finish personal time line.



Are students able to create time lines from reading and from experience? Do they include the right information?
