The common core state standards require students to study elements of a drama. These standards range from themes and characters of a drama to the visual/oral presentation of a play and how it compares to the original text. This package includes 16 teaching points for a drama unit in reading. The format of the unit fits into a Reading Workshop format, or it can be used in a whole group instruction format.
• A pacing guide of 16 teaching points (the last 4 teaching points are explored through activities provided that dig deeper into the strategies taught throughout the unit)
• A handout for each teaching point that includes reference materials with a model reading notebook response
