This is a quickwrite that goes along with the Open Court, McGraw Hill Series, Unit 1 Week 4 story "The Great Serum". I have created a quickwrite that will engage students to relate the "Big Idea" from the unit with the selection prior to reading. This will help the students make a personal connection that they will be able to use to relate to the characters as they read the weekly selection.
Quickwrites are a great way to prepare students' minds for what they are about to read. It gives them a schema to add to as they read the selection. This in turn allows the students' comprehension to increase because they have a connection in which they can relate the new information being read.
This quickwrite is a part of my weekly lesson plan bundle for this story. This bundle includes everything you'll need to effectively teach this story! It includes lesson plans, comprehension questions, a note-taking organizer, a vocabulary organizer and review sheet, a spelling list as well as a spelling activity sheet. All of your weekly lesson plans and resources are done for the week! Please check it out!
