This Common Core reading comprehension focuses on determining the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, and analyzing the impact of allusions on text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. Students would benefit from already being familiar with 7.L.5a Interpret figures of speech (e.g., literary, biblical, and mythological allusions) in context. Literature background summaries have been provided for each passage. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of independent practice and review with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.
