This 2nd grade lesson plan goes along with Ready Gen 2016 book “The Earth Dragon Awakes”. The lesson plan is written following the CLI lesson template for an interactive read aloud to follow a Balanced Literacy approach.
This lesson follows the unit "Change Makers", also within the Ready Gen 2016 Program. I have included the link to the lesson plan bundle for "Change Makers" below. The guided writing activity references characters from the "Change Makers" unit, but can be used to discuss any person/character who is a change maker in the world. Finally I have included a brief quiz that assesses the students' ability to determine how characters respond to challenges, as well as illustrate a picture that could be used by the author in "The Earth Dragon Awakes".
The lesson plan and activities are Microsoft word and compressed into a zip file.
