Lesson Objective

Characters change their feelings in response to events. Readers notice feeling changes and think about what caused them.

Lesson Plan

Lesson 14:

Standards:

  • Determine character motivation and feelings from thoughts, dialogue, actions, and punctuation.  Trace how and why characters’ feelings change over the course of a text and how that helps establish a theme.
  • Determine the purpose of individual sentences and paragraphs and their role in the text.
  • Identify supporting evidence and provide elaboration for inferences.

 

Big Idea: People are influenced by and react to their setting so you need to consider the setting carefully. Readers of historical fiction can use what they know about a setting to understand character actions, feelings, motivations, and traits to make predictions.

 

Teaching Point: Characters change their feelings in response to events. Readers notice feeling changes and think about what caused them.

Materials:

Reading Workshop Lesson:

  •  Readers, like we’ve been doing for the past few days, we are going to notice Bud’s feelings change, and we are going to figure out what is causing those feelings to change.  
  • [Call on a student to remind the class where you left off – Bud is feeling comfortable and content sleeping at Herman E. Calloway’s house.] Scholars, for Chapter 16, it is going to be entirely your job to notice when Bud’s feelings change. Your hands should shoot right up whenever an important or unusual event happens that causes Bud to stop feeling comfortable and content. As always, you should be ready to explain what is causing his feelings to change.
  •  [If students do not notice these feeling change events, you might want to flag them:]
    • Page 185: My eyes started getting all sting-y…
    • Page 186: …it looked like I might be making a break for the street again.
    • Page 189: A gigantic smile split my face in half
    • Page 196: I couldn’t tie the smile down anymore…
    • Readers, keep noticing feeling changes in your reading and those important events that cause them.
