Product Description
From Electric English....
This is a small packet that focuses on close reading of the very short story, "Fish Cheeks". This packet contains about one week of work, give or take a day. I have, intentionally, not included lesson plans with these packets because I feel, at times, they can be stifling.... The idea here is; you can pick and choose whatever material you want; in whatever order you want (depending on the time you have); instead of, constantly feeling like you must adhere to a certain schedule. Plus, this way, you have many resources at your disposal and can mix and match from year to year depending on your mood. This packet contains the following:
- Biography: Research Notes
- Essential Journal Questions
- Diction (LEAD) Activity
- Syntax/Style Activity
- SOAPSTone Activity
- DIDLS Activity

I often use this story as an assessment for the students to see how well they are grasping the concepts for the reading strategies we have been working on in class. Sometimes, I ask the students to complete all of them for a major assessment grade. Sometimes, I pick and choose specific activities depending on how much time I have or what I would like the students to practice. In the past I have also completed the first three in class together, and then given them the DIDLS as the assessment. It is really about the skill level of each class, and what you feel will work best.
