Lesson Sequence

Measurement of Success

1. Students will get 2 weeks outside of

class (some in-class reading time) to
finish a book of their choice from the
time period of 1950-1900.
2. Inside of class, students will be learning
about certain literary terms and themes.
3. After the two weeks are up, the students
will see a sample glog. The rubric will
then be handed out, and will go over the
sample glog.
4. Students will get his/her password.
They will then receive time to work on
the glogs. This will give them time to ask
questions, search for links, photos, and
videos that pertain to their book.
5. Give students enough time to create and
feel accomplished about their final
6. Have the students present their glogs to
the class. As a teacher, this could lead
you to publish the students work to
create a since of accomplishment. (If
mentioned the publishing before may
motivate students to work harder or be
more creative with their final product).
One of the key measurements of success for
this project would be the requirement on the
rubric. Some of the requirements would how
well their time was spent in the classroom, how

creative and appealing to the eye it was, if they

used literary terms discussed in class in the
appropriate manner, if the correct number of
visuals, graphics, and video sources, correct
spelling and grammar, and title and author
clearly presented.
