We have developed this week-long lesson on King Midas and the Golden Touch. This complete lesson bundle contains everything needed to teach and assess the myth of King Midas. It is Common Core aligned and created to facilitate “Depth of Knowledge” (DOK) for your students. The myth is originally written and is aligned to be used as a CLOSE Reading activity (not familiar with CLOSE reading? It’s okay, we have instructions and anchor charts to help you incorporate it into your teaching).
You can use this unit in its entirety, or “pick and choose” the components to meet the needs of your students.
This unit contains the following elements:
• King Midas and the Golden Touch Myth Reading Passage (originally written for upper elementary and middle school students; it is written with wide margins to facilitate annotation for CLOSE reading)
• Allusion Poster for King Midas
• Character Analysis Activity
• CLOSE Reading Anchor Chart (poster to hang to show the symbols used to annotate in close reading)
