This includes 10 days of lesson plans on Theme and Summary, meeting 8th Grade Common Core/Ohio's New Learning Standard RL.8.2. These lessons take the ideas of theme and summary slow without getting too complex. These lessons were designed for students with ED. Lessons generally last 20-40 minutes.
These lessons incorporate the books "The Sign of the Beaver" and "Dear Mr. Henshaw". I divide my students into groups based on academic and emotional levels. Some of the activities included are identifying common Dr. Suess themes, completing theme task cards, creating class summaries, and blogging about theme songs.
This would be great for students needing intervention!!
