This 6-page Microsoft Word document contains a 3-page lesson plan and a 3-page handout / overhead. (Depending on how you run your class, you can pop the three pages on the projector or hand them out to students. They contain the most important notes for the lesson with student-friendly organizers where the students can write their responses to pivotal questions etc.)
This lesson is perfect for teaching students about the importance of word choice while reading Romeo and Juliet. The lesson contains an independent reading prompt (for additional practice), the aim, do-now, instructional objective, Common Core standard to which the lesson is aligned, mini-lesson, activity, examples, summation, and more.
Additionally, you can use this lesson for future books, just replace the Romeo and Juliet examples.
I hope you enjoy this lesson! Thank you!
