This file includes TWO separate lesson plans, one for the reading standard of analyzing text from a passage or book, and another for the writing standard of creating effective writing through point of view. Both plans include guided and independent practice activities and handouts. These lesson plans are aligned with Common Core.
Both lesson plans require at least one copy of the book "The Land of Stories" by Chris Colfer. This is a popular book and author with the middle school age group, (you may find some students shouting that they recognize the author's name) and makes for a lesson that will keep your class interested from start to finish!
