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. A list of Spelling Bee words is included. Empathizing with characters through a text-to-world approach is at the forefront of these highly-detailed, relative, easily comprehensible plans that make an excellent map for a full instructional week.
