SSR and a Change of Format
We'll start class with our usual 10 minutes of reading time. I will read with the students today.
Due to lab space constriction, my teaching partner and I will be splitting the class into half today. This means I will be teaching the same lesson twice, which rarely happens. I will be curious to see how this impacts the students focus.
In the interest of time, we will do this activity as a whole class discussion. I will ask the students to help me create a character chart on the main white boards in the room and will use their observations and details as the basis for discussion about the relationships and conflicts between the major and minor characters we have met so far.
This will be the a bit of scaffolding to help students to analyze the development of complex characters over the text as a whole (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.3 ).
