Written by Nancy L. Wilkinson of Reality Education, this is the companion slide presentation to the mini-unit, "What's Under the Umbrella?"
Students will be taught the same information found in the book of the same name. This mini-unit teaches the first three sections of Key Ideas and Details in Literature for the Common Core for 5th and 6th grades. Units cover elements of plot, theme and comparing and contrasting elements of literature. Students will learn how to use explicit information from the text to respond to the questions.
Each lesson has multiple activities that incorporate quick writes, graphic organizers, videos and class discussions.
