Hi! This product is a zip folder of 3 separate resources.
Resource 1: Editable two day lesson plan in a powerpoint slide presentation.
This lesson plan is very PLAIN & SIMPLE- it is black and white for your editing needs. The lesson is structured for middle school (one double block lesson and one single block lesson). There is a do-now, turn & talk, group work and homework for each lesson.
Resource 2: Stations & Group Work
Day 1: This resource has everything you need to teach using the powerpoint described above. The stations are clearly labeled and come with a title, a task page, a graphic organizer and an example. There are five stations (evidence-based claim, theme, tone, figurative language and text connections.) There is also a writing extension that can be used as homework.
Day 2: Connotation group work: comes with directions, materials and a graphic organizer.
Resource 3: This has the song lyrics and some additional materials you may find helpful.
