Lesson Plan

Description:

This lesson is part of a larger unit on "Coming of Age" novels. In this unit, students focus on the strategies of asking questions and making inferences, and they also gain familiarity with characterization analysis and analysis of theme. In today's lesson, students have the opportunity to make inferences about a text with the use of a graphic organizer. Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, customizable student notes that include the shared passage from Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient and Shel Silverstein's "Sick," an overhead transparency of the graphic organizer for use with the lesson, and an overhead transparency for recording student-generated and teacher-generated definitions of "making inferences." This resource is part of the Coming of Age Unit collection.
