POST-TEACHING Reflections The think aloud was fun lesson plan to put together. I enjoy group discussions and hearing the ideas and thoughts of the students after they read their passages in the textbook. My lesson plan focused on the Second President, John Adams, and his domestic and foreign policies. I had a pre-test question given at the beginning of the lesson, the main section was designed for students to be called on and answer the prompts and/or questions given by me, and a post-question given at the end of the lesson. Finally as a way to assess their knowledge, I handed out a graphic organizer worksheet that had questions pertaining to the text material the students read out loud in class. These questions were broke down into foreign and domestic issues during John Adams Administration. The foreign questions asked about the X, Y, and Z Affair and the domestic questions asked about the Alien and Sedition Acts and the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions.

Mr. Hamer had prepared his class for discussion and review on the topics of foreign and domestic policies of the Presidents (Washington and Jefferson) on the day before I taught my lesson plan. The pre-test question read, Whose foreign policy do you believe was more effective: Washington or Jefferson? I thought this question would be good for the students to compare and contrast the different presidents and their Administrations to John Adams. During the think aloud, I wrote out the prompts I planned to use during the lesson. These prompts were suggested from the instructions out of the FED. The main part of my lesson plan called on students to read aloud passages from the textbook on pages 202 and 203. Mr. Hamer gave me a stack of cards with each of the students names on them. I used this as a way to call on the students because I am still learning names. I randomly called out the names and had the student read a couple lines from the textbook on Adams. I would wait for the student to stop and then ask him or her, What do you predict will happen next? or This reminds me of the, or Can you picture or see what they must have saw? I gave the student a minute or two to answer and be engaged with the question. On two different occasions, two to three students raised their hand at the same time and participated in the think aloud discussion. One example I gave the students from the prompts I used was when I discussed the physical description of John Adams (he was a short man and was known for being moody). I asked the class to picture such an important historical figure being so short, because we think of our founding fathers as being big, tall, and tough fighting heroes. Adams was very smart and a lawyer. Another example from part of the lesson I utilized was under making connections. Part of the passage mentioned how Adams had to raise taxes to support the American Navy against the French. I asked the class if they thought our modern presidents today have had to raise taxes too. The majority of the class responded by saying Yes. After the students read and discussed pages 202 and 203 in the literacy content textbook. I posted the post-test question on the Smart board. I ask the students to rank John Adams with the other two presidents (Washington and Jefferson) and then asked, What were the reasons for your rankings? I learned that using a think aloud is a very important strategy to use to get majority of students attention. This strategy also helped me assess the students who may be struggling to read. Some students read softly and I was not able to hear parts of the passage they read. There may be parts of the literacy in the passages a reader may not fully comprehend. By allowing others to read aloud may help a struggling reader understand certain sounds to help him or her pronounce words; they can learn by putting the missing pieces together.
