Lincoln (2012)

Director:

Steven Spielberg

Writers:

Tony Kushner (screenplay), Doris Kearns Goodwin (book)

Summary: The Civil War is still raging and President Lincoln is not only dealing with conflict in his cabinet but struggling to make change with the Emancipation Proclamation.
Analysis: This movie is one of the best movies I have seen that not only tells a story but bring history to life. The movie has clean language and does not use special effects to over enhance the action. The Daniel Day Lewis does a magnificent job of portraying President Lincoln and taking the viewer inside his mind and life beyond the Presidency.
Content Area:  Social Studies, History, Civil War, President Lincoln
Curriculum: After reading Bill O’Reilly’s book Lincoln’s Last Days students can view the movie and plot similarities and differences between the two.
Digital Content:
International Movie Database information Page
Age appropriateness: “Lincoln” is officially rated PG-13 in the United States. This movie (set during the U.S. Civil War) contains war-related violence but minimal gore. There should be no issues playing this film in a classroom setting.

Students can choose the colors for decorating but must follow the recipe given in the video.

Why I Chose This Resource:

Students can follow along with this video easily and will be able to produce a product similar to the video and take pride in their work. Also Sandy Sheppard does not believe that you need a great deal of fancy tools to begin cake baking and decorating so it would be easy to follow the directions and not have to buy additional tools or have the students purchase materials that may not be used often.

Curricular Suggestions:

Once a week we could focus on a Culinary Arts school. Most schools offer specific aspects of baking such as pastry, sugar and chocolate. Students could then participate in a classroom discussion about the pro’s and con’s of the school and maybe keep track of the school’s on a map so we could see where they are located throughout the country as well as the world. It is never to early to get middle school students thinking about college!

Why I Chose This Resource:

It is important to show students that there are many choices when it comes to college. Baking is a science in a way and there are many skills involved in being successful. By highlighting different schools we can get the kids thinking about culinary arts school and have the education to bake up the passion for baking they may have.

Jok Church: A circle of caring

Summary:

In this TED talk children’s author Jok church talks about how a teacher cared when no one else did and how he returned the favor.

Analysis:

This is a short TEd talk but a powerful one. One that can grab the attention of middle and high school students. The message is one that anyone who is in education hopes their students hear.

Curriculum:

I will use this in my classroom as an introduction for the new year. In conjunction with my welcome speech I think my students will see that I am there because I care and I want to be with them.

Author: Norm Allen

Summary:

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum is one of the premier presidential libraries in the nation. Host Norm Allen tours this Springfiled, Illinois treasure to participate in the life of our 16th president.

Analysis:

I think this video would be another resource to pair with teaching the Civil War unit and learning about President Lincoln. We live in Washington State and most of our students are probably not going to get to the Lincoln Presidential Library. The host Norm Allen is easy to follow and I feel the kids would be engaged watching as he tours the library.

Content Area:

Abraham Lincoln, History, Civil War,

Curriculum:

Each student learns material different. By watching this video this might be the link a student needs to put the material about President Lincoln all together to remember, learn and enjoy. I would use this video to get the class talking about what they saw, thoughts they had and if they were President what would they want in their library.

Bill Nye The Science Guy – Genes

Summary:

Billy Nye the Science Guy explores the chromosomal world of DNA and visits a veterinarian from Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo who helps save endangered animals using gene technology.

Analysis:

Bill Nye is one of the best sources when it comes to getting kids interested in Science. I especially like this episode because he visits Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo which is about a five-hour drive for our students and many of them have been to the zoo and will like the connection. Genetics is a tough subject for students to grasp and this episode is one way to enhance the learning process with a visual source.

Bill Nye The Science Guy –

Summary:

Learn how detectives reconstruct events from the past using bloodhounds, fingerprints, and DNA

Analysis:

This is a relatively new episode for Bill Nye and it speaks to the popularity of forensic science and solving crimes and other mysteries.

Summary:

Barbara Lalicki conducts an interview of beloved author Beverly Cleary

Analysis:

I absolutely adore Beverly Cleary.  As I begin my career as a school librarian this would be something I would show my 7th graders as an introduction to their author spotlight projects. Beverly Cleary books are ones that most kids have seen or read and they would remember her famous characters and make the connection between her and the books. She was a wonderful speaker and person and this video will be used this year.

Curriculum:

Each 7th grade student will be asked to produce an author spotlight project. This video can be used to introduce the project and get them excited to pick and author. Each child needs to pick a different author.

Reaction:
The famous baseball song written by Jack Norworth comes alive in this vibrantly illustrated book. The song or story is repeated three times and would be a wonderful story for a Summertime storytime.

Cover Art for Lily loves
Title: Lily loves

Author: Lüftner, Kai.
Illustrator: Drews, Judith.

Publication Information: Simply Read Books, 2012.

Summary:

Lily’s life is full of contradictions–like the fact that she doesn’t like when people call her “Lily flower,” yet she always wears a flower in her hair–but she still loves herself despite her imperfections.

Ages:3-4

Reaction: When I saw this book at the library the wonderful, simply illustrations caught my eye. The story is not rhythmic and I do not think is a children for the recommended age. The author is trying to say that it is ok to be who you are. However kids in this age are too busy becoming who they are to care too much about what others think.

Kirkus Review
December 12, 2012

Accepting people for who they are is the
gentle message of Bar-el’s latest …
Bowers’ acrylic dragons are delightfully
nonscary, and readers will be able to tell
their thoughts and feelings with ease;
Crispin’s dejected slouch as he runs away
from home, toting a heavy suitcase, says it
all, as do his befuddled expressions at his
nonstandard eruptions.
Share this with your favorite atypical kids.
