Lesson Plan

Do Now:
Think about a particularly nasty place you have been (a stinky basement, a dirty kitchen, etc.). Use the space below to brainstorm sensory, memory and reflective details about that time. You may wish to make a list or create your own graphic organizer.

Introduction:
Teacher Says
Today we are going to focus on Chapter's 57 - 81.  We are going to work in groups to have book talks about the plot, characters and then make predictions on what we think will happen.

Direct Instruction:
(Teacher Says)
Before we begin our class discussion on the novel, lets summarize the main events that have occured in Chapters 57 - 81.
(this is an opportunity for students to ask questions about things they didn't understand or thoughts they have about the novel)

Guided  & Independent Practice
You will have students analyze and interpret the novel thus far and demonstrate their ability to express these observations and conclusions verbally in a large group setting.

In groups students will answer the discussion questions on the handout.
(Break students up into groups.  You can have each group answer and discuss all the questions or have each group work on certain questions.  As the teacher you should circulate from group to group ensuring that discussions are focused on the questions)

Closing:
Make your final prediction on how you think this novel will end for all the characters.
