Lesson Plan Description
Teaching students to read with meaning and not “bark” at print can be challenging! In this 4 lesson bundle (30-60 minutes each) using the myth, “Narcissus” your multilingual learners experience supported and guided collaborative conversations using sentence frames in order to demonstrate their understanding of this complex text. They will:
- Segment 1: Synthesize a myth to discover key details, analyze character and find a central message.
- Segment 2: Determine the main events of a myth using sequential words as a guide and create a graphic novel to show their understanding of main events and sequential order
- Segment 3: Identify and defend the lesson or moral of the myth using text supports as well as the words or phrases that help with visualize the myth
