This short story is an excellent tool for teachers who have never used the Socratic Seminar in their classrooms. The Socratic seminar is a powerful teaching and learning strategy that improves comprehension and challenges students to think and apply knowledge on increasingly higher levels. This product comes with a copy of the short story along with all the resources you need to implement this teaching technique into your classroom.
This product works well at the beginning of the school year while teaching Socratic Seminar expectations, as well as the lesson based on the short story about the importance of being aware of the needs of others. The lessons with this short story cover 6 out of the 10 literature standards and all 3 writing standards for fifth grade! Note: These plans can easily be adapted to 4th and 6th grade standards.
In addition, this product is a great launch into my novel studies that cover ALL the 5th grade literature and writing standards utilizing Socratic Seminar and the Literacy studio.
In this product you will find:
1. How to use this resource in your classroom.
2, A copy of the short story "LOVE and TIME."
3. 5 Scripted Lesson Plans
4. Reading response notebook examples from my classroom.
5. Common Core Alignment
6. A writing rubric
7. Narrative Story Map
Let the higher order thinking and learning begin!
