This is a unit for the Phantom Tollbooth. I do these as prep work for close reading. Students read first independently and then I read chapters aloud to them. Finally, they do the prep work and then work in collaborative teams to share their responses, evidence, and evaluate thinking.
a) A box for the student's heading
b) lesson objectives based on common core
c) Criteria for success
d) a reading record for weekly in class reading (this is set up for 15 minutes but if you purchase and want an update version for a different amount of time, I am flexible in sending you an updated copy --just send me a message)
e) Stretch your mind activity to get students thinking about the reading
f) a vocabulary chart
g) class practice sections with links to videos
h) Deep Dive questions to get student locating and using evidence from t he text
i) Character Charts
Collaborative learning for the students to assess themselves after the class discussions
j) Wrap up the lesson tasks
If you would like an answer key please let me know. However, the biggest goal of close reading and the Deep Dive questions are to let the students dive into the text and use evidence to create meaningful answers.
