This is the PPT and Lesson Plan that I used for a 3rd read of "The Hangman" which is an excellent supplementary read to go along with "The Diary of Anne Frank." The PPT is set up for a 3rd read and allows for close reading, and group reading of the text. It assumes that some annotation has already been completed but can be adapted to use for annotation or first read of the text. The lesson is based off RL.2 and RL.5 for 8th grade students but also touches RI.2 and RI.5 as the text is compared to Anne's Diary. This poem was difficult for my 7th and 8th grade self contained classroom but was very engaging and actually allowed some students who are struggling readers (Level K-3) to engage in rigorous text due to the fact that they enjoyed and were very interested in the text.
