This 5 page microsoft word document contains a three page lesson plan (Common Core aligned, including RL standard) and a two page student handout. (The handout should make life a lot easier, it even includes space for student responses to the do-now and pivotal questions, etc.)
This is a lesson you can use while reading virtually ANY text. It's for close reading and all you need is a text and a pen or pencil. (If the students don't have their own texts, just have them use pencil.)
This is great if you want to eventually teach annotating or if you have kinesthetic learners.
I hope you enjoy!
