Complete Lesson Plan
Print and teach! This lesson plan includes standards, discussion notes, pre-reading and post-reading topics, as well as literary devices to highlight during the story.
It has five short answer questions that deal with literary terms and five multiple choice questions focusing on comprehension. It closes with an essay prompt. Use it alone as an after-reading quiz or include it in a larger test. Answer key included.
I have included TWO sets of mentor sentences for differentiation. Each set pulls sentences from "The Colomber." One set asks students to identify the underlined parts of speech. The second set asks students to identify the underlined phrase or clause. Answer keys included.
Vocabulary - Study Guide and Quiz
Students will have a study guide with ten vocabulary words in context. A vocabulary quiz is included, as well as answer keys for both.
Students will label and color a "colomber" with the unknowns and fears in their lives. This helps students relate to the story and makes for a nice concluding activity.
I usually spend about three days teaching "The Colomber." My lesson plan includes ideas for differentiating, as well as extension activities. None of the activities depend upon each other - use one or more pieces easily.
