This is a six page Microsoft Word doc. It is a three page lesson plan and a three page overhead / handout. (You can use the three pages as an overhead if you have an elmo or a projector, you can use the three pages as a handout, or you can do both.) The lesson plan is incredibly detailed. It contains expected student responses to the do-now, the rationale behind the do-now, the common core alignment and standard, etc. It is print ready and perfect in case you use this lesson during an observation or if you simply want to make sure you have the best, most detailed lesson plan you can have.
The overhead / handout is very student friendly. It contains space and graphic organizers for answers, responses, and student work. If you have a differentiated classroom this will work perfectly for you.
This specific lesson is for identifying and constructing the four different types of sentences (from simple to compound-complex sentences) and uses Of Mice and Men.
I have additional Of Mice and Men lessons, most of which center around grammar, sentence structure, and language use, so if you feel this lesson is a success, please feel free to check out my other lessons.
