This lesson is the first in 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 explore the unit calendar and syllabus and then delve into the first objective, generating meaningful questions about the texts we read.
In addition to the calendar and syllabus for student use, this folder contains a detailed lesson plan for the first day, a print-ready overhead transparency of the graphic organizer for use with the first lesson, and customizable student notes.
This resource is part of the Coming of Age Unit collection.
