21st century skills and Level of Blooms:
- This lesson addressing 21st century skills by facilitating and inspiring student learning and creativity. With this 21st century skill, students will need to model collaborative knowledge construction by engaging in learning with students, colleagues, and others. This lesson addresses this skill by the students coming up with their own creative way to the setting, characters, climax, and resolution using comic stips. he students are also going to be engaged by working with classmates to create the presentation and sharing the assigned version of Little Red Riding Hood with classmates. Another 21st Century Skill this lesson meets is to model digital age work and learning. With this skill, students will communicate relevant information and ideas effectively to students, parents, and peers using a variety of digital age media and formats. This lesson does meet this skill because students are going to be communicating with other students. They will be carrying on conversations, working together, and creating digital comics.
- This lesson also integrates some of the Bloom's levels as well. It includes knowledge and comprehension. The knowledge covers knowledge of specifics, terminology, and specific facts. The students will be reading a story, completing a worksheet, using terminology and specific facts that they have learned over those skills. The comprehension level comes when combining the class to show how Little Red Riding Hood has been soften over the centuries.
Summary of Lesson:
- In this lesson you will divide the classroom into two groups. Once groups are assigned each group will get a version of Little Red Riding Hood and a worksheet that is laid out to concentrate on summary of reading, characters, setting, climax, and resolution. Students will then take the worksheet information to create a digital story to show the classroom allowing the class to compare the difference in the versions of the story.

- Articancam is an online application tool designed to help people create their own comic strips online. You can choose a setting, characters, as well as speech bubbles in order to create a story in the writing genre of comic books.
Complete Lesson/ assessment:
- For this project I would work Little Red Riding Hood into a first grade lesson plan with an emphasis on reading, writing, and communicating. Divide the classroom into two groups. The First group would be assigned the original Brother’s Grimm version of Little Red Riding Hood and the second group would be assigned Candice Randsom’s Little Red Riding Hood. While having each group complete the assigned reading, they would focus in the characters, character action, setting, key events, and solution. To help with these main points a worksheet would be completed ( Once each group finishes the reading, they will create a comic using artisancam showing the characters, setting. problem, a resolution that was found in the version of Little Red Riding Hood. This would be broken down to be completed in a week within the classroom
What you learned:
- Through this class I learned that integrating technology into a classroom can be very efficient. By using technology you give students a chance to learn, explore, self-teach, communicate, and create an environment in which students are driven and active. Using forms of technology within the classroom will allow evaluation of individuals, groups, and whole classes at a different comprehension level.
