Description

Use an engaging text and scaffolded notes to engage students in an exploration of dynamic characters!

This lesson begins with a quotes bell ringer to help students review how to cite evidence. Then, students break down the word "dynamite" using morphemes and prior knowledge to predict what a dynamic character is.

Students use a graphic organizer to first determine how Scrooge has changed over the previous scenes. Then, students read one scene of the play and use evidence to analyze how Scrooge has changed specifically in that scene using Close Reading strategies. A detailed lesson plan is provided after the class materials. Prepared by Middle School Writer.
