The Literacy Tour- Critical Thinking Made FUN!!!



Alright Critical Thinkers, let's get thinking. Here we go!!!

Step 1 

Your main focus for this particular lesson is to understand cause and effect relationships and be able to readily identify in speech, reading and every day situations. First you will first be engaged in watching a video which will clearly explain the terms cause and effect. To watch the video click here. While watching the video, be very keen as you listen to the definition of the terms cause and effect, words that are used to refer to both terms as well as the examples that are shown. After completing the video, you will be allowed to discuss the audio visual with your peers in order to gain deeper understanding. In order to guide your discussion, you may use the questions below:

What were the definitions for the terms cause and effect?

Did you clearly understand the definitions given? What was not very clear?

Are there any other words you know that could be used in order to identify cause and effect relationships?

Step 2

Now that you have garnered an understanding of the terms cause and effect, you are going to brainstorm different everyday situations in which you can identify cause and effect relationships. These you will share with a peer. You are then going to practice identifying cause and effect in different sentences in this video.

Step 3

You will now be required to complete an online quiz which will test your knowledge on cause and effect. This will be used to determine how much you have garnered from participating in this literacy tour.

Step 4

Alright! Seeing that you have practiced identifying cause and effect relationship in sentences, you are now going to get some pair work done. In your
pairs, you are going to read one of the following passages; passage one, passage two or passage three. After selecting and reading the passage in your pairs, more than once if you must, you are now going to create a cause and effect anchor chart.

View the different examples of anchor charts here, then be very creative and original in designing your own based on what you have read. 

Step 5

Now that you have completed your tasks, you'll take a look at this audio visual which will help you retain what you have learnt.

You will now move to the evaluation tab in order to view how your anchor chart will be graded.

Hope you had fun Critical Thinkers!!
