Product Description
Attack this classic by grabbing student's attention with a vivid photo introduction depicting frostbite, dangerous ice, and cute Huskies! Push them into close reading using guiding questions that focus their attention on foreshadowing, irony, narrator POV, tone, conflict, and theme. Encourage collaboration with directed partner inquiry, foster meaningful dialogue with high level discussion, and extend learning with your choice of two exit slip short response prompts.This lesson rings a lot of bells - knock your principal's socks off with these student-driven learning activities! I used this in my 11th grade class during the Realism Unit, but it will work equally well in any high school class. Depending on your class, this lesson should take 90 minutes to 2 hours to teach.
