Hannigan's Emergency Lesson Plans

Hanniganís Emergency Lesson Plans

English 2 - Write the following on the board before beginning: Protagonist, Antagonist, Initiating Incident, Conflict, Climax, Setting.

Instruct the students that they will be watching a cartoon. After viewing the cartoon, they will be directed to write down the characters and events in the cartoon that correspond to the literary terms on the board. For example, if they see a Superman cartoon in which he fights a bank robbing gang, then Superman would be the protagonist, the leader of the gang the antagonist, their first crime may be the initiating incident, their desire to rob opposed to Supermanís desire for order as the conflict, Metropolis at night in the 1940s as the setting.

Show a cartoon from the cartoon video, then direct them to do the above. Give them about five minutes to complete their writing, then show another cartoon. Repeat as necessary for up to three days.

Journalism -- Journalism is not like the other classes. It produces the student newspaper on an ongoing basis. There is a structure which functions just fine without me.

Yasin Shah is the editor-in-chief. He, in conjuction with the Managing editor, Marion Johnson, make story assignments, collect stories and edit them. Your job is to allow them to do that, while keeping the class from getting out of control, which is unlikely.

Students often have to leave the classroom to do errands such as conduct interviews, etc. If Yasin or Marion say itís okay for a student to leave, then itís probably okay.
