This 2nd grade lesson bundle (with assessment for “Change Makers”) goes along with Ready Gen 2016 book “Change Makers” and the Text Collection “City Green”. It does not follow the lessons in the teacher's guide, but takes some aspects from many of the lessons. The lesson plans are written following the CLI lesson template for shared reading and interactive read alouds to follow a Balanced Literacy approach. I have created what I call a “Shared Reading Guided Practice” activity for two of the shared reading lessons. Two of the intentional read alouds come from “City Green.” However, you will need your own copy of the other three intentional read aloud books, as these are separate from Ready Gen, but support the theme that change makers make the world a better place.
As for the assessment, I have included the Common Core Standards that are assessed (PA state specific as well). Please note that the assessment only asks questions based on the anchor text “Change Makers.” I grade the open-ended responses (rubric included for each question) using 3 points per question: Did the student write in a complete sentence (with good structure, capitals and periods)? Did the student include a page number for text evidence (this will start supporting TDA questions for testing in 3rd grade!)? and Did the student answer the question that was asked?
Finally, there are two activity sheets that are referred to that you would have to find on your own: a venn diagram, and a story structure (beginning, middle, and end) graphic organizer. In addition, when you see "Reading Response Journal" written in the lesson plans, I am simply referring to a notebook that the students use only for responses.
