This unit was designed for a 6th grade reading intervention class, but the skills of understanding character emotions, feelings and analyzing their dialogue will be able to be used in grades 3-8. Choose grade appropriate material and adapt if needed, but the content can be used for any of those grade levels.
This unit supports the information presented in Jennifer Serravallo's Reading Strategies book-- Goal 6, lessons 6.1, 6.4, 6.6 and 6.7.
Each unit includes a pre reading, during reading, and post reading activity to support a balanced literacy model. It follows the gradual release of responsibility and includes an I do, we do and you do model.
8 appendices are included with texts and organizers built in. All you have to do is read over it and teach!
