This lesson is designed as a quick review of the standards listed below. This lesson has guided notes, multiple-choice practice problems, and an exit ticket to assess mastery.
The lesson covers three standards:
1. SWBAT rearrange a multi-paragraphed work in logical order.
2. SWBAT identify and analyze figurative language.
3. SWBAT analyze the effects of sound.
The lesson begins with a Do Now Review of logical paragraph order. The do now begins with a Stop and Jot to help students understand the importance of identifying transition words to order paragraphs. Then, there are guided notes for re-ordering a passage in logical order followed by 6 multiple-choice questions.
Chapter 2 of the lesson focuses on Figurative Language and Effect of Sound. Students begin by reading a poem. Then, there are two quick reference charts (one for each category) with a definition, example, and space for students to include their own example. As a guided practice while filling in notes, students will identify examples of figurative language and sound devices in the poem. There are 19 multiple choice questions for these two standards.
Overall, there are 25 multiple-choice questions in this packet.
All answers are included in Microsoft Comments. The Zip file includes a PDF student copy, PDF teacher copy, and a Microsoft Word document.
