Product Description

Students conceal the truth from parents/guardians! Abigail does too, but students often fail to realize this! To improve reading comprehension, take between 15-60 minutes to teach your students the 11 techniques Abigail uses to conceal the truth. The editable Notes handout lists the 11 techniques plus an example of each.

Then assign the editable Project. Students write an original script that features a character who tries to conceal the truth from another character. The first character will use the same techniques Abigail uses to conceal the truth. A Graded Student Model and easy to use editable Rubric are included.

Then students use the editable Guided Reading handout to track Abigail’s efforts to conceal the truth from Rev. Parris at the beginning of Act One. The Guided Reading handout can be completed for homework or in small groups or as a quiz. Editable Answer Key is included.

You can use the editable Guided Reading handout without using the Project and vice versa.

My students love this fun, high-interest, easy to grade Project because they get to conceal the truth (and not get into trouble). They also feel a sense of confidence and accomplishment as they complete the Guided Reading handout because they can detect every instance when Abigail deceives her uncle. I love both because my students enthusiastically devour Act 1, and the assessments are easy to grade.

Try it!
