This 8 page document contains:
-2 page lesson plan (Common Core aligned)
-1 page handout for students (contains the most important notes for the lesson and includes a quick Q&A section to assess student understanding)
-5 page handout for group work (each group can be given their own, separate handout with different topic to work on- great for differentiation)
This is a great lesson for teaching theme in Sharon Draper's Tears of a Tiger, especially since the text has such great topics (Suggestions included in the lesson plan).
I hope you enjoy this lesson!
