Arm your students with the tools of close reading and analysis for the Grade 10 ISTEP exam! Close Reading Assessments based on the the novel Tuesdays with Morrie will guide them through text analysis and multiple choice questions based on the text. A Constructed Response is included to help students organize and make conclusions about what they have read. Higher level thinking skills are used.
Check out the four constructive response reading units that go with the book.
Whole group projection of the assessment passage.
Whole group study of the multiple choice questions.
Teacher will model how students should read the multiple choice questions and constructed response question before studying the text itself to save time.
After the multiple choice questions and constructed response question, there are five timed multiple choice “game” questions. Teachers will project a slide with the question and students or teacher will read the slide, then teachers will project a second slide that has a 20 secomd timer. After 15 seconds, a 5 seconds remaining alert will appear on the second slide. After the 20 seconds, a red pencils up slide will appear. The next slide indicates the correct choice. Teachers can then discuss why this was the correct choice and students can study the four choices and see why the other three choices should have been eliminated.
The book Tuesday With Morrie may be taught in a number of calendar options. It can be taught every Tuesday until the completion of the unit (as the actual Tuesday lessons were recorded).
It can be taught within a week if it is the only single focus of study.
This product includes a journal writing prompt for each section of the novel Tuesdays With Morrie. The prompts may also be used for constructive response writings about the novel content to aide students with reading assessment comprehension.
Digital Writing Journal Prompts are in Microsoft Word docx format and PDF. Four pages.
In the memoir, Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, Morrie Schwartz wrote on little post-it notes creating aphorisms. An aphorism is an observation that contains a general truth. “Love each other, or perish” is an aphorism that is meaningful to me. In other words, this aphorism means that we have to love one another in order to have meaning in our lives. When someone dies, then we know the true meaning of loving someone.
Use the following aphorisms:
· As journal writing prompts
· As impromptu speech topics
· As reflective essay prompts
· To decorate your classroom or bulletin boards
· To encourage group discussions about the book
35 digital power point slide presentation that is editable.
Microsoft Word docx with 34 aphorisms.
