Topic: The Internet

Description: • Teacher presents the following question as a springboard for the lesson: Which social media platform is your favorite? Why?
• Teacher guides the ensuing oral discussion as students provide responses to the stimuli questions.
• Teacher provides website for the reading passage and asks students to find the passage using their electronic device.
• Teacher instructs students to read and complete the cloze passage in pairs.
• Whole class discussion of passage follows
• Students are placed in small groups and instructed to identify the pros and cons of using the internet, writing their responses in a pros and cons grid (PCG) template provided by the teacher. Teacher instructs students on how to use the PCG.
• Students work on developing the PCG in small groups.
• After students have developed the grid they are invited to share their views and reasons with the class, and identify the major arguments as compared to the minor arguments.

Topic: functions in real life context

Description: • Teacher will outline the objectives to be met on the chalkboard and explain the importance of learning function, relations and graphs.
• Students will be asked to write the objectives set for the specified time period in their note books and after which teacher will explain the objective so that it is clear to students. In this case, students will know their goal and will work assiduously to achieve it by the end of the session.
• Students will be given 10 words to spell.
• A quick review of previous lesson will be done.
• Quadrants will be explained to students using seating positions. Selected students will be asked which positions they hold based on pairs of coordinates.
• students guided by teacher will then clear up any misconceptions observed.
• Students and teacher will explore relations functions and graphs using powerpoint presentation.
• Students will complete tables to find the corresponding values in a relation or function using worksheet.
• Students will explore a few examples.
• Students will be selected randomly to go to the board to solve similar problems set by the teacher.
• More experiments will be done.
• In groups, students will set up a germination experiment of a seedling. Then determine the function/relationship of the age and height of the seedling over a period of time, (i.e. containers, peas, water, newspaper/cotton/tissue paper). After 3 or 4 days of germinating, observe then measure the height of the seedling (i.e. young plant) with a ruler for at least one school week (5 days). Record the height of the plant in tabular form i.e.
DAY HEIGHT (cm)
1 3cm
2 6cm
3 9cm
4 12cm
5 15cm

• With teacher’s guidance, discuss observations made after 5 days. Predict the height of the seedling after 6 days, 9 days, 14 days etc. Draw conclusion that there is a relationship between the height and age (i.e. number of days) of the seedling as it germinates.

• As a whole class, note that the seedling grows 3 cm every day, so the height of the seedling is related to its age:
height(age) = (3 x age) cm So, if the age is 10 days, the height is:
• h(10) = (3 x 10) cm = 30 cm

• In pairs, complete the table below. Share and compare results with other pairs and then as a whole class.
age h(age) = (age × 3)cm
0 0
1 3
3.2 9.6
5 15
7
36
15.5
• In groups, with teacher’s guidance, present the data above on a bar graph using the geogebra software. Share and compare results with other groups and then discuss any patterns formed based on the data shown.

Experiments will be done at home as well as at school. Recordings will be done by each student and comparisons will be made.

• Students will be given oral questions thrown out by the teacher to calculate. The top 3-5 students will be awarded with stickers. This will promote listening skills,...

Topic: Storage Devices

Description: ENGAGEMENT
The teacher will write a set of questions on the whiteboard. The students will be told that they should listen to the scenario and try to catch the answers to the questions on the whiteboard. For e.g. Identify the two categories of storage
Identify the two types of storage.
Primary storage consists of two types of memory chips. What are they?
EXPLORATION
The students will be asked to give their responses to the questions given at the beginning of the lesson. These will be recorded on the whiteboard. The teacher will inform them if their answers are correct.
EXPLANATION
The students along with the teacher’s assistance will define primary storage. A further analysis of primary storage will be done. The teacher and the students will examine together to the two memory chips into which primary storage is divided. The difference between the two will be examined. The teacher will also emphasize the point that RAM on ‘volatile’. The students will say the word aloud and spell it for emphasis. They will be required to use context clues to determine the meaning of the word.
ELABORATION
The students and teacher will examine the ROM chip. The variations of ROM will also be examined. Differences between RAM and ROM will be highlighted. A definition of secondary storage will be ascertained and examples of secondary storage devices will be identified. Using the fish bowl technique the students will discuss the importance of secondary storage devices. A small group will discuss the importance while the other students will listen and join in the discussion by patting a member of the small group on his/her shoulder. The teacher will monitor the discussion to ensure that the students stay on the topic.

Topic: The Monkey's Heart

Description: The title of the story will be introduced. Students will predict what they think the story is about. Whole class discussion will be done. Students will skim and scan story for unusual words. These words will be listed on whiteboard. Individuals will be allowed to read sentences or paragrahs in which words are found and then use context clues to give meanings. Students will watch a video with one versión of the story.
Individuals, then whole class will read the story.
Students will be questioned so as to analyse the story to say who is the bad and good charácter. They will then tell whether or not their predictions about the story was correct. Socratic questioning will be done.Students will compare the two versions of the story and tell what differnces there are..
