Essential Question: Who is Jimmy Carter and what contributions did he make?


March 2, 2011, I taught Ms. Thompson’s 2nd grade class about Jimmy Carter. The lesson went well. I have done a lot of reflecting on this lesson, and given the opportunity, I would like to change some things.

I began the lesson by questioning the kids to see what they already knew about Jimmy Carter. I was impressed that some knew he was a former president and peanut farmer. However, that was the basis of their knowledge. Next, I covered the standards and what I expected of them. Then I instructed the students to join me at the carpet while I read to them about Carter. I read a school issued book about his life. It was very informative and highlighted the most important aspects of his life. Following that book, we read a children’s book that he wrote himself. I told the students that since Carter was known for his work towards human rights, this book was a good way for them to see how they could be human rights activists. The kids loved them book. Following both books we discussed Carter and what he did to help others. To help them remember, I had them paint a picture of them doing something to help others. Finally to close the lesson, I had the students tell me some of the things they learned about Carter.

If I could teacher this lesson again, I would do change some things. First I would try to find some piece of technology, such as a video or website, to get the students more involved. I found that two books, even though they were short, were too much. They really enjoyed the book he wrote, but while reading the book about him, I noticed they were some what bored. Therefore, next time I teach this lesson over Carter, I will use a video or website to teach about his life. The rest of the lesson went well. They really enjoyed painting, and I think relating things Jimmy Carter did to things they can do to help people really will help them retain what they learned.

All in all, this lesson was very informative and fun. The kids learned a good deal about Jimmy Carter! I look forward to teaching this again, and adding the changes to make it even better!
