Unit Description

In this unit students will practice comprehension skills while enhancing their knowledge and understanding of plot, character and author's purpose. Reading comprehension doesn't just involve fluency. It also involves deconstructing a story to understand the character's motivation, the plot and the reason why an author chooses to user a certain point of view or setting. This unit will use short stories to explore these themes.

Thank you for these lesson ideas!!! Sometimes teachers don't have the class time to read a complete novel but these short stories still get the meaning across and covers the concepts!!!
