This Smart Board Lesson contains everything you need to teach Module 3a Unit 2 Lessons 9-12. You will find the learning targets, Think Pair Share questions, and an interactive way to teach the direct instruction portions of the lessons. These slides take you step by step through each part of the lessons. I designed them to be as user friendly as possible, so no more teaching with a manual in your hands. Enjoy!
In the second half of Unit 2, students continue to consider how authors capture readers’ imaginations by reading and performing Readers Theater. They turn their attention to specific scenes of a script based on J.M. Barrie’s original 1904 play—Peter Pan; or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up—and compare those to scenes from their edition of Peter Pan. Students also will build fluency through Readers Theater, reading aloud and re-enacting excerpts from the Peter Pan script. (As an extension, students may perform their Readers Theater scenes for a real audience.) The End of Unit 2 Assessment has two parts. In Part 1, students read a script, analyzing it to plan for how they will deliver their lines. In Part 2, students perform their lines of a dialogue as a fluency assessment (while the teacher reads the other part and stage directions). The end of unit assessment centers on NYSP12 ELA Standards RL.3.3 and RF.3.4.
