This item consists of one week of lesson planning for 7th grade English. Lessons focus around reading comprehension of author’s purpose, characterization, plot, and setting. These lesson plans also address open-ended responding and the ability to use persuasive and explanatory tactics in writing. Creative and truly thought-provoking and engaging assignments, such as an FBI Profiling Project and Police Report are included. Empathizing with characters through a text-to-world approach is at the forefront of these highly-detailed, relative, clear plans that make an excellent map for one full instructional week. These lessons are included in PowerPoint form already, as well, for ease of use.
