Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Life's Little Lessons: Friendship
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Just like Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina, the children in your classroom are still learning how to be a friend, how to compromise, and how to work together to solve a problem. By seeing how Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina work out their conflict, children are learning strategies that they can apply to their own friendships. And just as Fred Rogers shared with previous generations, Daniel Tiger shares the message that one of life's greatest joys is the comfortable give-and-take of a good friendship. It's a wonderful feeling not only to have a friend, but to know how to be a friend yourself. In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children work on expressing their feelings and ideas, listen to each other and work together to solve a problem or conflict. Watch the videos about Friendship and think about how you could use them as part of the classroom activity or throughout the year as children work on friendship skills.

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

In our lives, we are constantly telling stories to ourselves and to others in an attempt to both understand our experiences and present our best selves to others.  But how do we tell a story about ourselves that is both true and positive? How do we hold ourselves up in the best possible light, while still being honest about our struggles and our flaws? Students will explore ways of interpreting and portraying personal experiences.  They'll read Chinua Achebe's novel Things Fall Apart , analyzing the text through the eyes of one character. They'll get to know that character's flaws and strengths, and they'll tell part of the story from that character's perspective, doing their best to tell an honest tale that presents their character's best side. Then they'll explore their own stories, crafting a personal narrative about an important moment of learning in his or her life.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Students read and analyze Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart , viewing the events and conflicts of the novel through the eyes of one of the central characters.
Students write a two-part narrative project: one narrative told through their character’s perspective and one personal narrative about an incident in their own life.

GUIDING QUESTIONS

These questions are a guide to stimulate thinking, discussion, and writing on the themes and ideas in the unit. For complete and thoughtful answers and for meaningful discussions, students must use evidence based on careful reading of the texts.

How do our conflicts shape and show our character?
How can we tell a story about ourselves that’s both honest and positive?
How do definitions of justice change depending on the culture you live in?
What are ways individuals can react to a changing world? To a community that doesn’t accept us?

BENCHMARK ASSESSMENT: Cold Read

During this unit, on a day of your choosing, we recommend you administer a Cold Read to assess students’ reading comprehension. For this assessment, students read a text they have never seen before and then respond to multiple-choice and constructed-response questions. The assessment is not included in this course materials.
