This mini unit uses the Common Core State Standards exemplar text, "Autumn" by Emily Dickinson. The lessons align with CCSS ELA for 2nd grade. You could easily use it for other grades also, just by making minor adjustments. Included in the zipped file, you will find:
-Lesson plan ideas (3 days)
-Assessment: written text dependent question
-Poem typed for displaying on screen (text is also found in Appendix B of the CCSS)
-Building Background picture
-Vocabulary slides to teach 4 key words
-Poetry analysis graphic organizer
-Visualizing sheet to draw/write visualization
-Class book outline for students to analyze the text
This mini unit is to be used as a resource. Feel free to supplement and use your own materials and ideas in conjunction with my mini unit!
Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
