Comprehenion
Students’ age range: 14-16
Topic: Levels of Comprehension
 
Description: The approach I will use to carry out the lesson is the Socratic Seminar approach. In this time-honored technique, I will ask a series of questions that lead the students to examine the validity of an opinion or belief. This is a powerful teaching method because it actively engages the learner and forces critical thinking. The method is also dramatic and entertaining, and it triggers lively classroom discussion.
Students will read about the three different levels of comprehension. They will also analyze the information and take notes.
Students will then be divided into two circles. The inner circle will read aloud what is literal comprehension and discusses the information for 15 minutes, while the outer group observes.
The outer circle will then evaluate the inner circle’s definition of literal comprehension and provide feedback to the inner circle.
Students will switch roles for the other levels of comprehension. Students will be given a passage with questions that falls under the three levels of comprehension.
Questions will fall under Bloom’s Taxonomy: remembering, understanding, and applying. Students will recall direct information from the passage, they will then have to explain base on understanding then they will have to apply the information in new ways or other situation known as transfer of knowledge.
Each circle will answer the questions from the passage and discuss with each other.
