This is a Powerpoint/Google Slides Show that follows the lesson sequence suggested by engageNY. The lesson has been condensed and summarized to make instruction easier for you. This presentation includes learning targets, opening discussion of Bud,Not Buddy Chapter 16, the Notice and Wonder protocol for stanza 2 of "If" by Rudyard Kipling, a vocabulary (close-read) activity on the stanza 2, and a Venn Diagram to Compare Contrast "If" and Bud, Not Buddy.
In this lesson and the next, students repeat the two-lesson cycle from Lessons 2 and 3. Students will do first and second reads of Stanza 2 from the poem “If ” in this lesson. The first purpose of these reads is to continue developing knowledge of poem structure with an emphasis on punctuation. The second purpose is for students to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words and phrases in a poem using context clues.
