My name is Randy Rodriguez , and in my page ..... I will be talking about Homonyms. I will be talking about Homonyms in my module. My main goal with this module is to teach students the subject of Homonyms. Homonyms is an easy to master subject and it is a fun subject to teach.

My Electronic Portfolio:

https://sites.google.com/a/upr.edu/randyeducation/home/objectives

Objectives:

  • Define Homonyms and its categories.
  • Present examples of each one.
  • Students will work on practice exercises.
  • Homework will be assigned.

Expectations:

  • Students should be able to correctly identify homonyms.
  • Students should be able to properly label homographs and homophones in a sentence.
  • Students should be able to correctly use homonyms in the creation of sentences.

Programs Used:

  • Power Point
  • Java
  • Adobe
  • Firefox
  • Hot Potatoes

Standards Used:

  • LoTi Level 1 - Awareness
    At a Level 1 (Awareness), the instructional focus emphasizes information dissemination to students (e.g., lectures, teacher-created multimedia presentations) and supports the lecture/discussion approach to teaching. Teacher questioning and/or student learning typically focuses on lower cognitive skill development (e.g., knowledge, comprehension).

    Digital tools and resources are either (1) used by the classroom teacher for classroom and/or curriculum management tasks (e.g., taking attendance, using grade book programs, accessing email, retrieving lesson plans from a curriculum management system or the Internet), (2) used by the classroom teacher to embellish or enhance teacher lectures or presentations (e.g., multimedia presentations), and/or (3) used by students (usually unrelated to classroom instructional priorities) as a reward for prior work completed in class.

  • LoTi Level 2 - Exploration
    At a Level 2 (Exploration) the instructional focus emphasizes content understanding and supports mastery learning and direct instruction. Teacher questioning and/or student learning focuses on lower levels of student cognitive processing (e.g., knowledge, comprehension) using the available digital assets.

    Digital tools and resources are used by students for extension activities, enrichment exercises, or information gathering assignments that generally reinforce lower cognitive skill development relating to the content under investigation. There is a pervasive use of student multimedia products, allowing students to present their content understanding in a digital format that may or may not reach beyond the classroom.

  • R.8.1 Analyzes the text... and distinguishes text features to enhance comprehension.
  • W.8.2 Accurate spelling, appropriate grammar and syntax in writing.

Homonyms are group of words that often but not necessarily share the same spelling and the same pronunciation but have different meanings.


- Homonyms are divided into two subgroups, which are Homographs and Homophones.


Homographs:

- A Homograph is a word or a group of words that share the same written form but have different meanings. Homographs are those words which have one spelling but two pronunciations and two distinct meanings or usages.

  • wood(element) and wood(tree)
  • murder(act of killing) and murder(group of crows)
  • content(parts of a project) and content(being happy)
  • tear(crying) and tear(ripping paper)



Homophones:

- A Homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning. The term "homophone" may also apply to units longer or shorter than words, such as phrases, letters or groups of letters that are pronounced the same as another phrase, letter or group of letters.

Examples of Homophones include:
