Description: The Eagles who Thought They were Chickens Teachers Guide provides an holistic set of classroom management strategies. It helps teachers and mentors to guide students through activities that examine language, behavior, school climate, and culture. Students discuss and write about the issues, conflicts, obstacles, and challenges which evolve between the characters in the story (eagles, chickens, and roosters) and the contrasts and parallels within their own lives to enhance their verbal, language, reading, critical thinking, and comprehension skills. As they associate the characters and behaviors in the story with people in their school communities, students are led into an analysis of their own behavior.
Activities can be performed independently, through role playing, and in groups. The activities lead students through the thought processes of Blooms Taxonomy: knowledge, understanding, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Through dramatization, illustrations, story-telling, writing, and oral discussions, students are engaged in various learning and communication styles. Students are further encouraged to examine, discuss, and write about the characters and issues in The Eagles who Thought They were Chickens story. Includes: Sample dialogue; Supplemental Activities; Reading; Writing; Discussion Topics; Venn Diagram; Code of Conduct; Research; Objectives/Materials; Eagle Word List and more. (128 pgs)
