READY TO USE LESSON PLANS + SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS.
This product consists of 5 days of 45 minute lesson plans on Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Minister's Black Veil." Hawthorne is a CCLS recommended author for 11th grade, and the questions are aligned to Common Core Standards. I have found this lesson to be very effective, as I've used it many times in my 11th grade classroom.
These lessons, which can be used as is by teachers or modified to fit their purposes, consist of an Aim, Do Now, Preview of Pertinent Vocabulary, a Reading Period, a Work Period consisting of rigorous, higher-order, text-dependent questions, an Exit Question, and a Homework assignment-- all of which are aligned to the lesson's Aim.
I have also included handouts for all 5 Work Periods, so a teacher can simply run off copies of these handouts for their students to write their responses on. Also included is a copy of the text itself.
