Product Description
This is lesson one in a larger unit on barriers using Rachel Carson's "The Marginal World," an excerpt from a book that is a college level piece. My lesson includes scaffolding activities that enable 6th, 7th, or 8th grade students to access this hauntingly beautiful piece which is written metaphorically. The lesson includes a step by step lesson plan, a vocabulary activity, vocabulary cards for students to use while reading, an anchor question for first draft reading, and focus questions for a jigsaw activity that allows students to take the piece apart in groups and then present to the class. There is a link to the piece and a video clip suggestion that appeals to visual learners. Students take notes on what the groups discover through the focus questions and each student will write a summary of the piece. A rubric is included for grading as well as grade score cards. I have used this lesson with both my honors English class and my special ed. inclusion class. While students do grapple with this lesson, it is amazing to see how seriously they take this lesson when they realize my expectation and what they are able to produce when the scaffolding activities are used.
