If you have the short story “A Day’s Wait” by Ernest Hemingway in your anthology, this lesson is for you.
Included in this resource are: a PowerPoint, lesson plan, and 3 worksheets.
✓ The EATS lesson plan includes: Essential Question, vocabulary, activating strategy, teaching strategies, and an Exit Ticket.
✓ The lesson plan and worksheets are a time-saver. Just print and go! Answer keys are included.
✓ The PowerPoint will help with pacing the lesson (especially if you are getting observed!) and will help students focus on the most important components of the lesson. Indirect and Direct Characterization are discussed.
I have also answered the essential question (using an example for "The Boy Who Cried Wolf") so that students will be able to discuss how to critique an effective response. Display this sample answer when students are completing the exit ticket.
The Common Core Focus is: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.6.5 Analyze how a particular sentence, chapter, scene, or stanza fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the theme, setting, or plot.
