This lesson is on the short story "Miss Awful," by Arthur Cavanaugh. Please make sure you have a copy of the text in your anthology.
✓ This set includes a PowerPoint, 2 Worksheets, Written Response (Essay Prompts), Vocabulary Worksheets, Vocabulary Quiz, Final Test, Exit Tickets, and Answer Keys.
✓ The EATS lesson plan includes: Essential Question, vocabulary, activating strategy, teaching strategies, and an Exit Ticket.
✓ The lesson plan and worksheets are a time-saver. Just print and go! Answer keys are included.
✓ The PowerPoint will help with pacing the lesson (especially if you are getting observed!) and will help students focus on the most important components of the lesson.
I has also answered the essential question (using "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" example) so that students will be able to discuss how to critique an effective response. Teachers can display this sample answer when students are completing the exit ticket.
The Common Core Focus is: CCSS.ELA-RL.6.1/ 7/1 Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
